3 ways that being lazy saves me money

How being lazy saves me money

I kill it every day at work, but outside of the office my middle name might as well be Snorlax.

I hate gyms with a passion

They are a strange and foreign environment. I spent a year in an apartment with a free building gym and spent about 10 minutes in it, total. I know better than to waste money on a membership I’ll never use. If I must exercise, I will run and hike outside.

I can’t be bothered with contact lenses anymore

In summer maybe, but even then, not full time. Between battling dry/sensitive eyes and the hassle of putting on makeup (a necessity to liven up my face sans the visual dominance of glasses) it’s too much work for the sake of vanity.

I procrastinate like it’s my actual job.

I haven’t had a haircut in six months and counting. Haven’t been to the optometrist or dentist for two years. The latter is definitely NOT good and I’m going to rectify that soon, I swear.

    Ditto on contact lenses. I am also that way about makeup.

    Being lazy saves us from eating out. Once I’m home, I don’t want to leave again. I also go a long time between expensive things like dental appointments due to being lazy. Hopefully, I don’t bear long term repercussions of that.

    I haven’t been to the dentist in nearly 20 years. I reckon they’re like dodgy mechanics, they’ll always find some work that needs doing.

    With the money I’ve saved from not going for routine inspections and the unnecessary work they will always find, I can afford a pair of the best dentures when I’m older.

    Have you tried the CreaClip for your hair? It’s amazing, and even more so if you have a friend/roommate/spouse to help.
    Making a salon appointment and driving, then dealing with delays, cancelations, etc. is a hassle so I love being able to get a trim at home.
