#5 Compost

Ok, you may have to invest some money in this, but it should pay off in the long run. And you can choose the level of investment, you may even have the materials lying around your house, in which case your investment cost will be minimal. To build a compost bin on the cheap you can use a garbage can or wire mesh.

The materials for your compost come from the foods you eat, your newspaper, grass clippings, leaves, and many more items. Check out this list to get an idea of the things you can compost.

And what's more is that you will be able to use your compost to fertilize your garden without chemicals. So, you save money on not having to purchase compost or fertilizer. And what's more is it decreases the amount of your trash, which helps save costs on your trash bill (see #4 for more info).
