My favorite way to save money is by using coupons — in every form! Paper, electronic, downloadable, printable, codes, you name it. I’ve only been couponing since March of last year, and I’ve already saved thousands of dollars.
Eating out less and cooking at home.
Favorite way to save money is cooking at home. Healthier too!
Swapping. Shopping secondhand stores and garage sales.
My favorite way to save is to never buy clothing full-priced and to use the local goodwill prices as my standard for a very good deal ie $4 for most items and $7 for dresses and jeans.

My favorite way to save is keep a budget — really, I can do all the extras like couponing, shopping thrift stores, ect but without knowing what is coming in, what’s going out & why I don’t save money.
If you don’t have a budget, here are three ways to budget. Find out which one works for you and stick with it!
Nixing frivolous expenses like cable.
I think a thrifty attitude is the best way to save money — being constantly aware of your spending! For me, though, getting rid of cable has been one of the best things I’ve done to save a bit of cash.
Keep up the thrifty attitude by dropping anything that is not necessary. I’ve never had cable and I haven’t missed out. Check out these site to watch TV for free.
Using daily deals.
I once got a $40 meal at a local BBQ place for $5 thanks to a Groupon and a $5 off email deal that I received from Groupon.
