    My frugral tip is to always go the store with a detailed list. Make sure everything rang up correctly before you leave the parking lot. Always match up sales with discounts or coupons and also keep track of rewards you will receive to achieve the best saving possible.

    Eat at home as much as possible. Freeze the leftovers in small containers for meals for the week.

    You have so many great ideas!! Some that I have never thought about! We have cut way back on buying processed foods. If I can make it myself…I do. We have always had a budget. Before we had a checking account we used the envelope system and put money away for all bills, rent etc. When my husband got a raise we increased the amount that we saved. We have our savings automatically transferred out of checking and into savings every payday….that way we don’t spend it!

    The other way I save is I never use my change. I have a big bottle I place all change in. Then once full I roll it and cash it in and put it in savings account

    I cook at home and make enough to freeze for at least 2-3 meals. I also purchase vegetables in the summer when they are inexpensive and then use my Foodsaver to freeze them and use when I need. I always shop with coupons both online and in the store to save but always check prices elsewhere to make sure I am saving.

    Thanks for the great tips on saving money. My fiance uses coupons all the time and shops sales with the coupons and whenever possible stacks coupons like store coupon along with manufacturer coupon and the items is on sale. Sometimes she can get such a discount that the item is free or has an overage that applies savings towards other items on the receipt.

    To go along with coloring your own hair, learn to cut your own hair! I used Youtube to learn how to trim and layer my own hair and it’s saved us SO much money on salon trips.

    I shop Sprouts on Wednesdays because they have double ads! I always do price matching if I can at more common grocery stores!

    SIgn up for rewards programs and wait to use rewards/points until there is a killer clearance sale! I recently used a 30% off at Kohls, bought 2 clearance Wonderbras for $8.70 (TOTAL).

    I do a lot of reviews, both written and videos, on different websites. Most of them give out credits/points which can be converted into gift cards. I have won many amazon cards, Macys card, and also Shell gas cards! It’s not in 1000s but it at least is in 100s! Every penny counts!

    Some of the methods that I use to save money is to use coupons, and to re-use left overs in new ways.

    I always comparison shop when I’m purchasing a big item. And see if I can get any rebates on it.

    I recycle cans at our local grocery store. It’s not much money back per can but it’s dollars towards groceries!

    I do a yard sale once a year, then try to resale at cosignment store, then giveaway the items that are left over.

    I love all of these ideas-especially the one about calling your phone/cable company once a year to ask for discounts. This tip has saved me a ton of money in the past! Thanks for laying it all out for us :)

    One of my favorite money savers is baking soda-it has so many uses from health & beauty to the kitchen, garage and garden!

    Best way for me to save is not shopping. I send my husband. I hate food shopping.

    I love Amazon Prime – I thought it would be a waste of money, but I signed up a few months ago – the free 2-day shipping especially has saved me loads of money, and I can get items I need quickly!

    My tip for saving money isn’t tested (by me) yet, but I saw it on a friend’s facebook page and thought I’d try it out – put aside $1 the first week of the year, $2 the second week, $3 the third week, and so on – the most you have to set aside in a month is $202 in December (but you’re increasing the weekly amount just a tiny amount each week, so you get used to it slowly), and the amounts really add up by the end of the year!

    Refill store bought water bottles instead of throwing them away. Saves you money and helps the environment.

    Shop for clothes for children after the season for next year when they are on clearance. Remember to go up in sizes to account for their growth next year.
