Re: Hop in! On my way to a 100k!

FrugalRican - Some of the hotels I stay at offer free cookies (not all).  I do take two, if there is enough.  Shampoo, conditioner, soap, etc.  I take what I will use or have used.  In the old days, I'd take the partially used tp off the roller, but not anymore.

 

I also ask the desk clerk, when I check in, for a few ingredients to cook dinner --- usually milk and butter.   They have always given me what I need.  Bless their hearts!

 

I still bring the last opened bar of soap with me from hotel to home to hotel, but it's mainly cuz I do not want to waste it.  I use to collect the unopened soaps, but anymore.  I need to go through what I have first.  I think I have 3 unused bars...

 

I stopped taking coffee cuz I was overwhelmed with it.   

 

But yeah, there are ways to reduce expenses with complimentary items.  :smileyhappy:
