Current market trends require not only high strength and reliability of products, but also compliance with environmental requirements. In some categories, this direction is affected indirectly. Even if household goods are completely safe for humans, a huge amount of dangerous emissions can be released during their production. Modern technologies make it possible to avoid this or minimize environmental damage. According to the material , household goods are classified into the following groups:
Wooden. The most simple and eco-friendly to manufacture. They can perform a decorative function. When using wooden cutting boards, pushers, rolling pins, chop hammers, it should be borne in mind that wood absorbs moisture, odors and pathogenic microorganisms well.
Steel. For non-food purposes, black metal is actively used with subsequent coloring. Stainless steel has proven itself well in the preparation. It is strong, durable and safe for health. In this case, it is used as a coating or base material. Protects other metals from corrosion and the formation of dangerous compounds when interacting with food.
Enameled. They serve as a continuation of steel products. Enamels are applied mainly to dishes, prolong its service life and allow the use of ferrous metal for food purposes.
Aluminum. The main advantages are lightness and high thermal conductivity. Due to this, metal is actively used in complex dimensional products. Its use in dishes allows you to speed up the process of heating and cooking.
Glass. Presented with decorative elements and dishes. The products are very durable, but quite fragile. Modern alloys are characterized by impact resistance, heat resistance and wear resistance. They can be used in ovens, microwave ovens and dishwashers.
Plastic. The widest group of household goods. Thanks to the development of production technologies, products made of this material can have a variety of properties: strength, impact resistance, heat resistance, elasticity, etc. This makes it possible to replace products made of other materials with plastic. It turns out not very eco-friendly, but the cheapest products in production
Despite the insignificant price of individual products, if you add together the monthly expenses, the amount turns out to be large. This is due to the fact that the products belong to the category of everyday use. Even if the fee for it is insignificant, but you have to go to the store often. Therefore, there are several ways to save the family budget:
Purchase by list. Most of the expenses in the store are unplanned. Thanks to marketing tricks and advertising, sellers manage to sell goods that the buyer does not always need right now. And sometimes it remains completely unclaimed at home. To avoid this, you need to make a list in advance and purchase only the household goods specified in it.
Wholesale purchase. Many stores offer discounts with a large receipt. More often this is expressed in a reduction in price, and sometimes in the form of gifts. Therefore, a one-time purchase of all the necessary products is more profitable. And if we are talking about household chemicals, it turns out to save money also due to large packages. In terms of one kilogram or liter, their price is much lower.
Visiting fairs and sales. Most stores or shopping centers host seasonal or pre-holiday events. You can find discounts up to 50% on them. But in order not to spend money on unnecessary promotional goods, you need to have a list of products needed for a month.
Visiting industry exhibitions. These events are little known to ordinary consumers. Information about them, as a rule, is on the website of the city administration and is published in regional media. The event brings together many manufacturers in one place. This guarantees minimum prices. New household goods are often presented there. Moreover, some of them are sold for a symbolic price to study demand.
