Cut your own hair.
Well, not your OWN hair, but get someone you love and trust to cut your hair for free =)
When we were first married, Jared got his hair cut at whatever hair place was having a sale. A few haircuts into our marriage, we decided to make an investment and buy some hair clippers. Something like 20 bucks from Target.
Jared was very patient with me for the first few cuts. I had never cut anyone’s hair before and had no idea what I was doing. The first haircuts ended with us saying, “Well, I guess you can wear a hat for the next few days.
But after the first trainwreck cuts, I got the hang of it. I have figured out his hair and know how much to take off on top and what clippers to use around his neck. It is very rewarding. I love saving money, seeing him not look like a shaggy dog and the complements he gets afterwards.
Jared has incredibly thick hair and needs to be cut almost every month. So let’s say the average men’s hair cut is $20, not including tip. That is at least $240 dollars a year. In 10 years of cutting Jared’s hair we will have saved $2,400!
A bit dramatic perhaps, but you get my point =)
