Whether you're a frugal Frank or a spendy Sally, you'll be able to find something on this list to make life a little less expensive. And you'll be helping the environment to boot! Bonus!

Let's be honest, times are tough for a lot of folks out there. Both consumer debt and the national debt are out of control. Reusing and repurposing everyday items from around the house, your workplace, or off the street can be a great way to save money and help Mother Earth.

Some of the things anyone can easily reuse include:

- Soda bottles
- Coffee beans
- Tea bags
- Shower curtains
- Popsicle sticks
- Pots and pans
- Old jeans
- Suitcases
- Buttons
- Ladders
- And much more!

  • A couple of days ago I told you about my friend John Collins who was giving away his new enlargement exercises eBook. Well, he just reached out to me this morning and told me his email inbox literally blew up. He couldn't sort through the 230+ emails he had received in the last 48 hours BEGGING him to reveal more about his enlargement methods. John isn't the most technically savvy guy, and at his typical typing speed I estimate it would probably take him about a year to reply to all those e-mails. So, I convinced him to run a webinar and answer the most common questions about natural penis enlargement that he has been receiving. He is going to reveal some pretty shocking things about the enlargement industry, and what makes his two-step process different than anything else you may have tried. The only problem is, seating is very limited due to server capacity, so to reserve your seat you need to register at the link below.
