Money saving tips from a dirty hippie

Hi everyone! Today's post comes from a guest blogger, The Dirty Hippie. Enjoy!

Hey all you cool cats. Here’s a list of far out tips to help you save your dough. You dig?

1. Go au natural

There’s a conspiracy, man. A conspiracy that is taking us away from our natural selves. Why fight what nature intended? Nature didn't intend for us to smell like Teen Spirit. All of these “beauty” products are designed to make us feel inadequate so that we spend huge wads of cash to fit in. Fight the power! Ditch your razors and let your hair grow free. Hairy pits are sexy! Chicas – keep it real! Stop wearing make-up,and let your real beauty shine through. No need to spend money on complicated chemicals. Nature gives us everything we need – a little patchouli, some aloe, and you’re set!

2. Eat your veggies man

Mother Nature provides us a wonderful bounty of fruits, vegetables, nuts, and legumes. There is no need to harm poor, fuzzy creatures for food. Besides, meat costs a lot of dough, dude. By going veggie, you can totally cut back on your budget.

3. Become one with nature

Nature is like the gift that keeps on giving. Why pay $10 to go to the movies when you’ve got nature’s entire playground laid out in front of you for free. Think about it dudes. The ocean is like a fantastical swimming pool. The mountains are a wonderland of trees. The desert is a vast valley of contemplation. The only thing that Mother Nature asks of you in return is for your respect. That’s a groovy bargain if you ask me.

4. Chill out dude

Stress is totally gnarly. There’s no reason to get your panties all in a ruffle. Just let what will be, be. Hang looooose. You don’t want stress to bite you in the end with high medical bills cuz you got a stroke or something, do ya dude? Take a chill pill and just….reeelaaaax. Yaaaaaa.

5. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

The three R’s totally rock my world. It’s like the proverb says, “Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without.” Profound stuff. Profound stuff that will save you money.

6. Find your passion

That’s the reason we’re alive. The quest for passion and meaning in life. Don’t be one of those people who hate their job – workin’ to live, not livin’ to work. That’s no way to be man! Those who are truly successful in life have found their passion. Money follows after.

7. Unleash your inner creative beast.

The revolution is all in your mind. Creativity is your only true commodity. Don’t work for the man. Let the man work for you. Write. Invent. Paint. Play. That’s where the true money is.

8. Kill your TV!

The late, great Jim Morrison told us that we are ruled by our TV. And that was back when TV was free. Now, people pay to have their minds warped. Do yourself a favor and turn it off! Chuck the thing! There’s lots of other things you should be doing like going to a drum circle or hugging a tree that don’t cost a thing.

9. Practice free love

Karma can be a….well, let’s just say you don’t want to mess around with karma. Give love and receive love. Give money and receive money. If a friend needs to crash at your pad, let them. One day you may need a place to crash and karma will be on your side. It’s all one big, happy karma loop.

10. Happy April Fool’s Day!
