I clean used items for a fraction of new, build much of my own stuff, maintain my own stuff, run a solo op to avoid work comp, run tires to the steel belts before replacing, etc.

Get Illegals to work for you. Low wages, no insurance, and no complaints.

Change any joint accounts with your spouse back to your personal use only! I save five figures every year!

Do it no more often than every 3 years.

Buy them used to begin with and pay for it in full.

I've had the same insurance carrier for the near part of 15 years. I've shopped around, but no one comes close. I can't beat $260 a month for home (rented out), apartment, three vehicles and a trailer. Best one yet that gave me a quote just last fall wanted almost double that for the same coverage, even with multi-vehicle discounts and such.

Even better than employing illegals, just buy a couple of them and keep 'em in the basement. I am getting a business credit card that pays back 3% on gas and 1% on everything else, that will put a little money back in my pocket for sure. I also try to make myself a lunch every day.
