Money-saving tips! Everyone has a favorite!
I know everyone has their favorite money-saving tips, some are very obvious, some are more elusive. How about sharing your favorite frugal tips with us?
As for me. . .one of my favorite money-saving ideas (and yes, it's pretty obvious, but VERY EFFECTIVE!!). . .
Don't go shopping! Stay out of the stores! I like to "window shop" or go shopping for fun or entertainment, but if I'm not in stores, I'm not buying. When you are in the stores, you tend to make a purchase or two. Maybe little ones, but they add up! Maybe you spot something you just can't live without (you know what I mean!!!) However it happens, I'd bet you buy something in most stores you enter!
Going to the store for one or two little things can turn into 4 or 5 items, most of which you'd have lived without if you hadn't been there at the store!
So--stay out of the stores! :) Make a list, stick with it, buy all your items in one trip to the store--and save your money!
Now--let's hear your greatest idea!
Feel free to share your favorite tip in the comment section here!
