Bringing my own lunch to work + not giving in to every single one of my Starbucks cravings has gone a looong way.


Oh and using Ebates.

  • Make coffee at home (30c kcup vs $2+)
  • Pack lunch
  • Limit eating out
  • Buy non perishables in bulk when on sale
  • Drink tap water instead of buying juice or sode (double win, no calories and sugar)
  • Same with junk food
  • Use reward credit cards, but only if you can control your spending and pay it off every month
  • And while this doesnt save money immediately, it will help out a lot for retirement: put away as much as you possibly can in 401k as early as possible.  Two words: compound interest.

MeredithWacknik:  I’d you mean related to wedding expenses? Because that’s not where the answers are going.

Hi! I actually blog about this and would love to help you. I think you can save every single day on your normal expenses (gas and groceries) but when you’re paying for the inevitable wedding expenses, I think you can really rack up substantial savings. I’d love to help.

On wedding related stuff, definitely do some price shopping. If you can get something for $20 or something similar for $50, really decide if that extra $30 spent will make you happier, or if that little savings (done over and over) can save you a bunch when it adds up. An experienced wholesale shopper (hint: me) can help you find enormous savings on details like cloth napkins in your wedding colors, placecard holders for under $1, and creative gift ideas that don’t cost a fortune. There’s also this magic box called RIT that can help you customize almost anything you can think of.:)
