  • I hate to say it like this but living in a bubble is not living no matter how long it increases your life span. After all its only the logical step to these thlught process stop smoking stop eating stop tgis stop that but make sure u pay ur taxes bc thats all that matters in life right thqt ur government gets a good little worker bee thqt cost it nothing to cover your health cost.. i mean im not saying live a hedonistic lifestyles but i am saying you have to find your own balance…and life match.. but they are right for the most part on here n not asking too much of people. But you do have to understand that you have tk stay in your lane n do the things you can actually afford to do.. n if you can help it dont pick up any habbits like smoking drinking or even caffieene bc these things are just detremental in comparison to any good anyone out there could try to shove into the occasion.. even if you cut corners there is only so much u can do to make those cheap n they ha e alot of fallout from them that are expensive in the long run for u ur family ur health n well being.

  • Ngl: growing up broke prepped me for being resourceful and a major budgeter for when I moved out on my own. I managed to save up over $6k in a little over 4 months.

  • OMG!!! I totally love this one, for me the best video of the year, can’t wait to try some of them, specially the peanut butter jar ��������

  • One thing I do that maybe is super obvious but I never thought about: putting bananas in the fridge. It’s nice to not have to eat them all at once when they reach the perfect amount of ripeness lol. Just wait until they are exactly how you want then put them in. They turn brown on the outside when they’re cold but they don’t change on the inside

  • Dang it! I didn’t look at YT until this evening. This morning I cleaned out the refrigerator and freezer. Now I will use your ideas about food about to go bad. I’ve also invested in special refrigerator containers to keep lettuce, celery, and carrots “fresher” for a little longer.

  • If you buy in bulk learn ways to preserve them like freezing, dehydrating, canning, etc. Also you can freeze parts of cooked dishes and when you have enough saved up make a magic soup. Appalacia’s Homestead with Patera did a video awhile back on what kinds of dishes to save and what not to save and has different ones on making that kind of soup.

  • I became vegan(Whole Food Plant Base Diet) and I cook and save and eat very tasty and healthy. I am saving money enough for a nice car payment.

  • I find that nuts never ever go bad since there’s no water in them. Sometimes if I forget about them or buy too much they last me for years

  • Alcohol, cigarettes, vapes, tattoos, name brand clothes, concert tickets, Netflix account, newest smart phone. It isn’t just eating out. It’s poor people habits propping up egos.

  • I eat before i go to restaurants, and order dessert while I’m there. Dessert is usually under 10 bucks so I get the social interaction and I don’t blow my budget!

  • Awesome video!! Food waste is such an important topic that always seems to be ignored. Another thing that I love to do to stop waste is to turn my food scraps into compost. It’s a fun project that is wonderful for the environment and is a great way to fertilize your garden.:)

  • I have a prescrip for kilonipin that ive been trying to get for months now. In america u have to get a check up every month to get a refill of ur meds and while the meds do help me a lot of terified of going to the doctor. Ive had social anxiety since I was a child and ptsd from my child passing away. I had to live in a hospital with my son for a month. Since then I have been a horendous alcoholic. I’m only 29 but for the passed few years I have been drinking a liter of 80 proof vodca a day and my insides hurt me constantly so geting that bad news of wat awaits me is also scary. I wish I could b a guine pig for doctors. a perfect example of a person on the door step of the other world. I am willing to do anything that could help others like me. I have to live and become a functioning person to show my kids its possible. If there life ever takes a turn for the worst I want them to b able to look at me and know there is a way back from anything.

  • A good way to enjoy seeing people socially and still eat something away from home that I’ve found is getting your friends to agree to potluck a lunch at the park or meet up at each other’s homes and rotate the host.

  • I’m just here to see if there is anything that i don’t do LOL. I’m a fanatic when it comes to waste. I barely waste food. I buy what i need, and use what i buy. Simple! but i’m gonna try that green onion thing.. will see if it grows.. Nice video 😉 Thank you!

  • OMG Joannah, what a lovely thoughtful video ��, a lot of people talk about fitness and health but only a few even consider food wastage. I have personally come across so many people who mindlessly waste food without thinking twice. I personally had trouble with bread getting expired and food rotten but you sorted them out. See another reason to love you. I am going to share this video with most of my friends.������

  • Sure, el problema es comer fuera. No un sistema de desigualdad y abuso diseñado para que no tengamos seguridad financiera y que los ultra ricos se queden con más dinero.

  • Great tips! Thank you. I am going to try mango chia jam since they are in season here. Kiwis (organic and scrubbed clean) can be eaten like an apple. If the fuzzy exterior is unappealing, throw the peels into a smoothie. I don’t have an issue with the fuzziness.

  • Please don’t be offended, Sara Lynn. I adore you and you have some wonderful ideas but have you watched any of your videos? I find the motion of your hands while you’re talking very annoying. I know it’s not easy making these videos so I don’t like to criticize. However, I would enjoy watching your demonstrations more if you would make an effort to calm your hands. You’re a lovely girl and you have a very nice manner about you but the hands……….

  • We signed up for Chefs plate in Canada and even though it’s 10 dollars a serving, our grocery bill has actually gone down quite a bit! No more waste and are eating out way less.

  • Amazing tips and hacks Jo. These can be very helpful for girls who are staying alone, I am doing few of them which you mentioned but have to try all. Love you:)

  • Thanks for going into detail and emphasising what’s really important like breath out more than you breathe in, many people just say breath deep. Also the chewing gum I find interesting as I have recently started taking a drink with me every time I leave the house for when I get anxious and my mouth goes dry, I will be buying chewing gum asap. Liked and subbed.

  • I live in rural WA now and no longer have the luxury of my parents farm for all my fresh food. It’s made me so conscious of what I buy and how I use it, but i still manage to waste food! I’m trying to only buy fresh food on special and plan around that. Being mostly vegan, no veggie should go to waste hehe <3
