List Day: 8 Ways I Could Save Money If I Were Less Lazy

  1. The cost of a print Washington Post subscription has increased to $98 for 8 weeks of paper, and the print edition always contains the stories I read online two days earlier. ($637 / year)

  2. I'm never near a Popeyes anymore but I order too often from Domino's. ($300 / year)

  3. I tip based on the total plus tax rather than the total because I feel like I can afford to do so. ($192 / year)

  4. My Amazon Prime subscription is great, but three-day shipping really isn't that slow, and I rarely find anything both interesting and free to watch on Amazon Video. ($99 / year)

  5. I have Rebecca's engagement ring on my homeowner's insurance and have almost paid 1/3rd of its value in insurance since it was added. ($86 / year)

  6. I go to the gas station conveniently located on the way home from the grocery store instead of waiting in an endless line for the Costco gas. ($48 / year)

  7. I get Consumer Reports and read it monthly, but haven't actually bought anything rated in it in years. ($30 / year)

  8. I take the Dulles Greenway anytime I have to travel north on a weekend. ($26 / year)
