Paper Products – Shop near the 1st or 15th of each month when many supermarkets discount paper products by 20 to 40% or check out mass retailers like Sam’s and Target which tend to charge 8 to 10% less every day.

Batteries – Use rechargeable ones. Amazon basics in AA have worked amazingly in our house.
