    Default Five Great Ideas to Save Money

    Want to save money but dont know how? Feel like depriving yourself
    when it comes to saving money? Don't be disheartened. Try these
    five money saving ideas, without breaking up a sweat!

    Reduce or eliminate magazines. If you are a typical American family,
    your mailbox gets its regular fill of magazines: business, sports,
    home and garden magazines. Can you imagine how much each of these
    subscriptions cost? Annually, it is an average of about $20 per
    magazine. If your family is subscribed to 5 different magazines,
    thats already $100 savings per year! If you still need the
    information from such mags, try to check out their websites and
    you'll be surprised at how much free information is available!

    Buy in bulk. How can warehouse and discount clubs drastically lower
    their prices? Because they buy and sell in bulk. And so should you!
    Consumables that are non-perishable can be purchased 10-15% cheaper
    when bought in bulk. Be sure to stock up only on fast-moving items
    such as kitchen towels, cleaners, canned goods, etc., to avoid
    wasting money on rancid food.

    Eat at home. Eating out has become an American lifestyle. What used
    to be an activity to celebrate special occasions has become part of
    the daily, fast-paced life. But did you know that eating out could
    chomp as much as 40% of your budget for food? That's as much as $40
    weekly, saved just by eating in!

    Plan your meals. Eating out 4X a week need not be your solution to a
    dynamic lifestyle. Menu planning is! Take time on weekends to plan
    for the following week's meals. Every night, before you hit the
    sack, take out the ingredients for the meals of the next day from the
    freezer, and store them in the refrigerator. By the time you get
    home from work, everything is thawed and ready to be cooked. And
    because eating out is part of the American way of life, you would
    have saved enough money to spend for dining out on special occasions!

    Homemade skin care. Is your dermatologist eating up your budget?
    Don't you wish you can be beautiful and save money at the same time?
    The answer is yes, you can! By using ingredients from your pantry,
    you can take care of your skin and still save a fortune. Try the
    following:

    - Honey and oatmeal can exfoliate dry skin.

    - Ginger seeped in a bath softens your skin.

    - Cucumber and milk softens tired skin.

    Without drastically changing your lifestyle, you have started your
    path on saving money. Secure your future by using these money saving
    ideas, today!

    Re: Budget101.com : Five Great Ideas to Save Money


    All of my magazine subscriptions are bought on Ebay under ID Thrunner. I
    recently bought a 3 year subscription to Disney Adventure for $2.85 that is less
    than the cost of 1 issue at the store. I'm buying a 3 year subscription of Self
    magazine for a friend as a gift for $2.75. I never pay full price.
