Those who have tuned into an episode or two of ABC’s Shark Tank are likely familiar with Mark Cuban, the plain-spoken investor who also owns the Dallas Mavericks.

The billionaire businessman has built his success upon smart financial choices, and he recently shared with Business Insider three easy ways others can be more mindful of their own money.

His first piece of advice is to buy common necessities—such as shampoo, toothpaste and other non-perishable care items—in bulk. Spending the extra cash now can result in larger savings at year’s end.
