  1. Clean out your closet and do a clothes swap at work — one woman’s junk is another woman’s treasure.
  2. Get rid of your home phone if you have a cell.
  3. Or, if you keep your home phone and get rid of caller ID, call waiting and all the other add-ons.
  4. Another critical tip to save money is to keep track of how much you reduce your monthly expenses.
  5. Save something every paycheck. If you have direct deposit get some put right into a separate savings account even if it’s only a few bucks. The trick is doing it immediately before you have a chance to spend it. if it goes in automatically you don’t even see it.
  6. Decipher between NEEDS and WANTS. Put “wish-list” items on a 30 day list and then re-evaluate. This eliminates impulse shopping.
  7. Never and I mean NEVER pay full price. You are crazy if you do. Bargin shop.
  8. Buy quality, timeless items that will last versus the latest trends.
  9. Buy store brand versus name brand products. Most store brands are really name brand products in a different wrapper.
  10. The last of the tips to save money – Go to the library. It's nice to ownbooks, but the new library has a great used book store attached to it and you can get hardback books for $1.00 each, paperback for $0.50 and magazines for a dime!
