      This was shred with me, and I’d like to do the same.

      Let’s start a wave of information- What are 25 different ways you

      save money?

      Whether it be daily or once in your lifetime, either jot it down in

      the comments or post to your own blog and I will link to it here.

      (just let me know in some form) It is always good to take a step back

      and see what good you ARE doing and where you can do better.

      Here are my ways I have and continue to save money :

      2. Use Heat and Air Conditioning sparingly

      3. Use the light of Day instead of lights in the house

      4. Pay bills online or in person, instead of using stamps

      5. Keep razorblades dry and clean so that they last longer

      6. Write checks for over the amount instead of using an ATM with fees

      7. Use plastic containers to store left over food for eating later

      8. Turn off all lights when not in a room

      9. Leave the car at home at least one day out of the week

      15. Wash clothes every 7-10 days

      16. Wash clothes in cold water to save on heat

      17. Every 6-12 months verify I am getting the best deal on utilities

      and insurance

      18. Cut out all subscriptions to magazines unless I can get them free

      19. Buy foods in bulk or when items are clearanced and save in freezer

      20. Pick up money from the ground and save in a coin jar
