  • I find one of the best ways to save money is to say/tell yourself you don’t have any money.
  • Don’t live above your needs.
  • Buy holiday decorations after the holidays. Prices are usually half off if not more and they will still be good for next year.
  • Create your own gifts. There are so many d.i.y. crafts and gift ideas that are really cute and function-able that will save you tons of money.
  • Start a blog.

  • Crafty? Make and sell your crafts online.
  • Become a product tester & get paid to try free products.
  • Shop at garage sales and thrift stores you never know what deals you might find.
  • Stay at home parent and love kids try babysitting. People are always looking for trusty worthy people to watch their kids. They will pay just to know that their kid is in safe hands.
  • Sell your unwanted gift cards. There are websites that will buy them from you.
  • Sell your clothes that you may not wear or your kids grew out of. How many times you clean out your kiddos clothes and find brand new clothes never worn. Guess what they already out grew them. Sell them and make some of your money back.
  • Watch your bank accounts. I know so many people who don’t check there accounts. Who later will find that something was being taken out there account for months and they never knew.
  • Get your kiddos outside. Getting them to play outside is not only good for their health but it’s also good for your bills.
  • Make a list of things to do that are free or relevantly cheap. On days money is short or you are are looking for something to do that don’t cost money. You can always pull your sheet out and it will give you some ideas.
  • Trade babysitting nights with someone. If you know someone with kids see if they would be interested in trading off babysitting days once a month. It will save from paying a babysitter when you want to have a date night or do something.
  • Fix what you can at home or on your vehicle before picking up the phone and calling a professional. Even before you call a professional ask your friends or family if they know how to fix it. They may charge you way less if they even charge you anything at all.
  • Have a family night. Have a night where everyone gathers in one room. Play some games maybe just hang out watch TV. It gets everyone in one room which means less lights and electricity being used.
  • Pay bills on time. Paying your bills on time saves you from having to pay any late fees.
  • Have a staycation instead of a vacation. Even if you don’t want to spend your vacation at home because who wants to do that. Find a little town or city near you that you never stayed at that might have a lot of sightseeing stuff for you to do. Use a hotel booking site and rent a hotel. It will save you more than half of what you would have spent going on a actual vacation.
  • Ladies never pay full price for feminine products. You can always use a coupon. There is never a excuse not to use a coupon.

I mentioned this above but use your coupons with a sale. I find that places like family dollar are always having some sale on feminine products. Combine that sale with that coupon and you will see the saving add up quick.

Where and how to get your coupons

  1. Local store ads & newspapers
  2. Company websites
  3. Didn’t find any on their website, send them a email and 9 out of 10 times they are going to mail you some if you just ask
  4. Coupon apps
  5. Store apps
  6. Order online, use a promo code and your Ebates to get money back
  • Last but not least do not throw your old rusted tools away just yet. Try soaking them in vinegar and cleaning them up. I personally work on my car and I’m really bad about leaving them out. This helped me from having to replace a good bit of my tools.
