1. Skip microwave bags and go OG with your too-cold-to-venture-outside movie snack with a jug of popcorn kernels and tasty parmageddon popcorn recipe.

2. Air out smelly shoes (so they'll live to see a few more seasons) with a pair of charcoal odor deodorizers.

3. Fight the lure of fancy boutique gyms' Instagram-able neon lights and break a sweat at home to YouTube videos. Tone It Up is the right amount of perky and instructional for when the last thing you wanna do is crawl out of bed.

4. BYO iced coffee with this cold-brew maker because you're weird and love cold caffeine in the winter, too.

5. Nab a free Sephora product sample of an old fave to last you 'til you're feeling richer.

6. Cut off your cable, quit squinting at your phone, and hook up an HDMI cable to your TV to stream entertainment with the help of some loved ones' passwords.

7. Check RetailMeNot before you buy ANYTHING (including noms) for applicable coupon codes.

8. And while you're at it, train yourself to save on the reg with our insider online-shopping tips.

9. Keep your grocery store haul fresher for as much as 10 times longer (!!!) in these BPA-free produce bags.

10. Get a head start on your day (for the whole week) by baking Morning Glory Muffins, mini quiches, or other breakfast concoctions in a muffin pan so you won't be (as) tempted to buy a croissant.

11. Invest in a snazzy gym bag-dedicated water bottle for the price of two (just two!) coconut waters at your trendy local yoga studio.

14. Act like a clean freak on the cheap with a DIY bleach recipe and these clever clean-freak hacks.

15. Quit throwing away your money at the drugstore at $3 a pop for fresh hair ties and commit to Hair Tie Society, a dirt-cheap monthly subscription of new hair ties and bobby pins.

17. Switch out your winter-boot laces so your footwear will perform better ASAP and tough it out as keepers.

18. Smear a little baby oil on your razor before each use to make the blades (safely) effective for longer.

19. DIY your own salad dressing out of stuff that's already in your pantry and store it in the fridge in a mason jar with a special pour lid.
