Other Savings Tips:

One tip I am going to share and use would be to order kids meals if you have a small appetite, or share a meal if going to a restaurant. I did that today and spent 8.00 less than I usually do for two of us to eat.

When shopping online…no matter what it is always check for a coupon code..I saved $30.00 this week on ordering business checks…you never know unless you try! My favorite site for this:
Retail Me Not

Have children? Leave them at home when grocery shopping!! I promise you will save $20.00 each time with this small tip!

Even if you don’t have time to coupon…take advantage of price matching at Wal-mart or any other stores that may offer price matching.

Plant a small garden of fruits and vegetables that you use most often if you have the time and space to do so.
