Supplies with multiple uses
With money being tight for me and I think many others, I have started to look for things that have more than one use. Some of the more obvious things many people know about.

Vinegar is a great resource because it has quite a few uses. It is a good flavoring for food. It is a dandy cleaner anything from glass to vajajay. It can also be used as a natural insecticide. Baking soda is great for many things also. Tampons have been used as emergency wound care in a pinch. Coffee filters can be used for something other than filtering coffee. I have used them as light scouring cloths.

If you have any suggestions please post them up. When something can help me save a buck I am all for it.

EDT: White vinegar is the one for multitasking. Thanks to streaker for making that clear.
You have a right to protect yourself and a duty to protect your family.
Just to clarify, White Vinegar is good for many things, don't use Dark (cider) vinegar for cleaning.
Don't forget that vinegar can also be used as an all natural herbicide. I don't have the exact mixes but I can find them and post them later.

You can use a tampon to apply vinegar to a vagina.


Seriously, you can do a lot with isopropyl alcohol. Use it to clean stuff, disinfect a wound, use it as fuel and cook with it, and even cut glass.
Yogurt containers - cheap form of tupperware.

Empty juice bottle: can be used as hot water bottles

Platters from dead hard drives - hung as chimes, as well as flashing disks that can be suspended in a garden. Scares away birds as well as deer.

Rare earth magnets from dead hard drives: large and extremely strong magnets, multi uses.

Tampons can be used to seal a puncture wound until you get medical treatment.

All of life’s problems can be solved with two things—duct tape and WD40. If it moves and it shouldn’t, you need duct tape. And if it doesn’t move and it should, you need WD40.
