Saving money is great, but saving money without making any changes to the quality of your everyday life — hell, maybe even improving the quality of your everyday life? That, my friends, is the dream, and I'm here to tell you it is possible with these home hacks that can save you so much money.

You may be surprised that this "how to save money" post involves me telling you to go buy some stuff. Well, first off, to paraphrase an old saying, sometimes you have to spend some to save some. Second, this isn't just any old stuff. Not only will these ingenious products extend the life of the things you already own (hello, furniture repair kit), but they'll also help you save on electricity and cut down on your grocery bill.

I've even included products that help you spend more wisely on creature comforts. Take, for example, the first product on the list: a personal-sized blender. At under $20, this smoothie maker almost pays for itself in a couple of uses, since it saves you from spending big bucks at a juice bar. (And when you're feeling a little less righteous, you can also use it for milkshakes, too.) See what I mean? Not only does it save you money, but it actually makes your life better. Talk about a win-win.

We only recommend products we love and that we think you will, too. We may receive a portion of sales from products purchased from this article, which was written by our Commerce team.
