Unless you like slipping and sliding around, most thin rugs require rug mats to keep you and your kids steady on your feet. One price-comparing mom had a simple idea to use cheaper drawer liners in place of rug mats.

KelsyC of Jill of All Trades bought some rugs at Target and noticed that it was cheaper to buy non-slip drawer liners ($3.99 for an 18″ x 60″ piece) compared to a non-slip mat ($2.99 for an 18″ x 30″ piece).

So maybe not a huge, huge savings, but every bit helps. And if you’re like us, you may have some drawer liners in your closet that never made it into your drawers so using them under a small rug may be just the ticket.

Good tip, KelsyC!
