The Living List of Crazy ways to save money

The following are Money saving ideas for the shameless... that I thought of (mostly for fun):

Stack Mr. Rebates shopping portal and Groupon discount codes with gift cards purchased from eBay or Safeway with more gift cards and Mr Rebates shopping portal. 
Take a shower at work to save on utilities, water, and electricity – as a side benefit you go to the gym more often (do your 3S’s there, ****, shower, shave) If you work in a startup company that caters food, it’s a no brainer--- eat at work and bring food home. Maybe you can even befriend someone that works there and join them for lunch from time to time. For extra credit consider a life of “intermittent fasting” and totally binge at these free meals. Wash your car in the rain. No mineral deposits left while it dries. 
Costco leasing to own programBuy an Anker powerbank and charge it at work. Always take a pee before leaving for the day. Try to poop at the same time every day while at work… get paid to poop. Time is money and flushes cost 10 cents. There are soft drinks available at restaurants? Why are you eating at a sit down restaurant, you have to pay tip? If you must, order food to go and eat on the premises. Best of both worlds! Wear clothes with the tag on it and return it. Buy a snorkel from Costco to go to Hanama bay while visiting Hawaii to return it. Another Hui member caucions that on many electronics there is a 90 day return policy. Use an app like GasBuddy to find the cheapest gasoline station, better yet, double stack your Costco credit card (4% cash back on gasoline) and buy Costco gas. This one is a bit morbid, but an important one. Set up a revocable living trust with your lawyer to avoid probate expenses following the death of your family members\ Susie Orman’s advice - make coffee at home and save yourself the $5 Starbucks Vente frappucino FAST (intermittently, not forever)! Skip breakfast daily (work yourself up gradually) and when you’re ready to get to the big leagues, attempt to fast for an entire day (no breakfast, lunch or dinner) Solar panels (maybe?) Become an Uber driver or deliver post maters? (not a big fan)
If you have a spare room not in use, AirBnB it from time to time Check out EventBrite or other social event platforms for free lunch/dinner/drinks Buy Mod Pizza’s mega salad for $11.27. Dinner for days! Use Honey or Ebates or other discount portals for Amazon/eBay or other internet purchases to save a few % Certain credit cards provide 5x bonuses (Chase Freedom has rotating categories) and Chase Business cards are good for auto-pay things like internet with extra bonus categories Make a Ghetto Latte at Starbucks and other fun

If you are serious about saving money move from hawaii to rural west virginia.
