What is your best money-saving tip?
My best money saving tip is to find ways to make extra money. Then, either save as much of the extra money you are making, throw it towards your debt, put it towards some sort of financial goal that you have, and so on. And, before you tell me that you have no time – the average person watches around 35 hours of TV a week!Michelle Schroeder – Making Sense of Cents
Considering sharing expenses to decrease them. You could share wi-fi with a neighbor, get a roommate or even share a car. There are many arrangements that could work out and save you money in the end.
Aja McClanahan – Principles of Increase
To be patient. For instance, if you wait to find all your home pieces at thrift stores or when they go on sale, you will save way more money than if you decide to furnish your entire apartment as soon as you move in. I once waited 4 months to get the car I wanted at the right price and then drove 4 hours away to get it. I saved $1500 and actually made money when I sold it a year later.Laurie Duncan – Margo's Money Map
My best tip for saving money has everything to do with what you eat and drink. You're never too good for generic store brand food! Avoiding name brand food can easily save you hundreds of dollars per year. And when you decide to eat out, ordering water saves you at least $2 every meal (and keeps you healthy).

Live below your means! So many people try to save money while also driving a new car or paying high rent or mortgage. I think it's important to try to live with less and lower your overall cost of living. Maybe live with a roommate for a while, downsize to a smaller place, get rid of your car if you can. Then, when you're ahead, slowly reintroduce these things back at a level you can comfortable afford.
Kristin Hanes – The Wayward Home
My best money saving tip is to pay myself first. I automatically have money taken out of my paycheck and deposited to my savings account and then whatever is leftover is what I have to live on. I've saved a lot of money this way.

The fastest way we save money without even consciously doing it, is through a program we set up with our account manager at our bank. Every time we swipe our debit card, $1 goes into a special account. At the end of the year each year we've done this, we've had enough for an amazing family vacation! If you want tangible savings at the end of the year without feeling a pinch, I recommend this! If your bank can't do it, use cash only and take all change you are given every time you spend money and put it into a jar.Cat Holladay – The Compass Is Calling
I believe the best way to save money is to limit yourself with a budget. If you use the envelope system for things like clothing, groceries, and little luxuries it helps you to see how much you spend every month. Put your budgeted amount for each category in an envelope and when you've spent all the money in each envelope you know in order to stay on budget you can't buy anything else. You could put a month's worth of cash in each envelope or you could do it on a weekly basis. You may find that you can do without the thing you where going to buy or even find a cheaper idea so you don't go over budget.Patty Richmond – Fun Fam Living
Every six months or so, call your internet, cable, and cell phone providers and ask for the latest promotion in pricing. This alone has lowered my bills or upgraded my service at no extra charge. I've saved a bundle doing this regularly!

The best tip I can recommend is to find free activities to do for entertainment. For us, this include potlucks, game nights, visits to the dog park, and playing badminton in the backyard. The latter is a great workout as well!

When money is tight, shop your kitchen first. That means checking through your cupboards, pantry, fridge and freezer to see what you already have. This can help you out before pay day or when you just want to cut back on your spending. Not to mention that it saves waste.Emma Drew – Emma Drew.Info
Combine a sales price with a coupon for the absolute lowest prices at the grocery store. You don't have to be extreme to save a lot of money. Even if you don't think you'll use coupons you can always use them for household items like toilet paper. I haven't paid for toothpaste for over 5 years because it's frequently free with coupons!
Cameron Tanner – Savvy Savers Academy
Fear would be my best money saving tip. If you fear being homeless and destitute, then that will force anybody to save more money.CJ – CJ The Money Guru
Use cash back websites when shopping online and get up to 10% back on your purchases.
Cora Harrison – The Mini Millionaire
Bring your own lunch to work. You work 22 days per month and if you can save a little every day, it will make a huge difference. After I switched from eating at my company's canteen, to bringing my own food, I saved around 5$ per day. That is $110 a month. And not only that, when we cook it’s not only for me but for my wife as well, so it’s a total of $220. Plus, we eat more healthy and the type of food we like.

If you have credit cards with no balance, schedule the payment online for the last possible date (to avoid late fees and keep money in your account). For credit cards with debt, pay whatever you can as soon as you can so that you minimize the interest on the balance (as that is calculated on an average daily balance), even if that means paying in doses.Debbie Gartner – The Flooring Girl
Create a budget to know where your money is being spent. Cut out the fat and save the rest. Live well below your means.
