9 ways to save big bucks

submitted on January 17, 2011 by siggy38 in "Member's Lounge"

The expression "a penny saved is a penny earned" doesn't cut it these days. But saving a few dollars here and there can add up.

Saving money doesn’t necessarily mean you need to drastically alter your lifestyle and personal tastes. Many times it is the little things you do that can help you save cash throughout the year. Here are 9 examples of ways you can still live the life you want and save money in the process by making some adjustments.

1. Form a cooking co-op
2. Find free entertainment
3. Use the public library
4. Bargain shop
5. Communicate cheaply
6. Weatherize the house
7. Raise the deductibles
8. Time the vacations
9. Negotiate

    Everyone, no matter the situation, can find ways to cut corners and get better results from the money they are able to bring in. We just have to be able to re-think Mr Green

      Absolutely right! If you cannot evaluate the situation, well you will continue to spend big bucks because you do it on a "whim". Big Grin

    There was a story on our local news once, It was about this guy that saved $30,000.00 in pennies. He brought them into a dealership and bought a brand new truck.. Gotta give him props for that.
