How many filters do you use in your home?  Most people have several of them.  Some of the common items are:

Furnace filters
Water filters
Humidifier filters
Air cleaning filters

Be sure and keep the number of these filters in your purse. If you see them on sale, you may want to buy one.  At the very least, remembering to replace a filter when you are at a store that sells them may save you the time and expense of having to run out later and replace it.

Frugal footnotes:

Here are some more ideas to save money on filters.

- Check the Internet for filters.  We found our furnace filter heavily discounted by one site
on the Internet.
- Check out ebay for discounted filters.
- Clean your filters often, if possible, so they will last as long as possible.
- Don't forget to maintain the smaller filters, like the filters for your vacuum, refrigerator,
blow dryer, etc. It they get clogged, you will blow out the motors.
