5 Money Saving Tips Every Latino Family Follows

When you grow up in a big Latino family, you learn how to stretch the value of a dollar. Latinos are experts in how to get the most bang for your buck. Check out this listicle, which shows the 5 best Latino hacks to get way more for way less. These points are straight out of a Latino family playbook. Latinos love sharing, so we’re sharing these points with you. Now, let’s all get out there and get more for less.

1. When you’re having car trouble.

There’s no need to take your car into the dealership. Simply call up your tío (you know, the one who knows everything about cars) and have him check out the problem. He can teach you how to change your oil while the two of you have a deep conversation and spend time bonding. You never would’ve had the chance to hang with your tío if your car hadn’t broken down. Also, when he’s done giving you a free mechanic lesson, you can drive to Wendy’s and treat him to the $5 Giant Junior Bacon Cheeseburger deal!

2. Running out of cabinet space?


Just use your oven to store all of the extra pots and pans that Abuela insists on giving you even though you tell her you don’t need them. But you’ll always be her little grandbaby…so you can’t say no to the extra pots and pans! The next time she comes over to see you, you can set out all the stuff she insists on giving you. She’ll be thrilled to see you didn’t get rid of them!

3. Have a hole in your favorite shirt?

Instead of running to the mall, call up your tía who is a queen with a needle and some thread. Have her give you a lesson! You guys can gossip and catch up. Life is so busy and it’s hard to find time to hang with your family one on one. This is the perfect opportunity for bonding and catching up with your tía.

4. Want a manicure?


Convince your sister into giving you one! It’s the perfect time for sisterly bonding. Besides, when your sister is giving you a manicure, you can be as picky as you want to be. Don’t like the color? You can take all the time you need in picking a different shade. And since your sister did such a good job on your nails, you can treat her to a $5 Giant Junior Bacon Cheeseburger deal from Wendy’s!

5. Want to have a fun night of dancing but don’t want to pay a cover charge?

Clear out the living room, invite the whole family over (yes, including your little cousins) and blast that music! Latinos know how to bust a move. Plus, you can be in control of the music! It’ll be way more fun than going to any club… and with the $5 Giant Junior Bacon Cheeseburger Meal at Wendy’s, you don’t have to miss out on that post-club meal that completes the perfect night out. With double the beef and bacon, plus 4-nuggets, small fries and a drink. Now you know how to stretch $5 with the best of them!
