Yes - my bras and panties started lasting a lot longer once I started washing the bras in a bag (albeit in the machine) and hanging all the lingerie to dry, about 10 years ago. Apparently most European women would be aghast at the idea of machine-washing any of their lingerie.
UK here, i chuck my lingerie in the washing machine on a 30degC wash and drip dry,
when my dh and i were living in our old house, he rarely drank tea, whereas i can guzzle it by the gallon, so i would reuse teabags, but i had two normal teas and 1 with 2 teabags to get the most i could from it. really did save us money.
we also have a costco membership and i make a list from our normal supermarkets online shopping website and when we go round, if it isn't cheaper we don't get it, except for meat, costco meat is always fab.
We have within walking distance: Aldi, Lidl x 2, Tesco, Sainsbury x 2, Waitrose x 2, Marks & Spencer and a few smaller speciality stores such as bakers, butchers, polish deli's, and i adore the Chorizo from lidl, can make so many different meals from it.
ok, looking at that we are definitely spoilt for choice.
