I think it is a great idea to try to not waste lab supplies at any time (not just when money is short- although it nearly always is!!).
My suggestion would be to consider carefully the implications of reusing items such as tips- in the long run you will end up using far more time and resources if you have to repeat something due to contamination!!!

I've actually tried washing and reusing tips but when things go wrong you're never sure if it's the tips or not. Buying tips in bulk and racking them yourself is pretty cheap.
