Five Ways to be Frugal Today!

Want to save some money today? Here are five simple ways you can spend a few hours today to save some cash.

  • Skip eating out for a week — Instead, pack lunch for the next five days. You can prepare a big meal and put it, pre-packed, into the fridge so that you will have enough food for the next week.
  • Look through your magazine subscriptions and cancel anything you don’t read – This might take you an hour or so, but look through all of your magazines. Are they all worth the money you spend? Get rid of the ones you don’t use and you can probably save $20/month. Then, read them at your local library for free.
  • Optimize your cell phone bill – Ramit Sethi of IWillTeachYouToBeRich.com wrote a great article about how to save money on your cell phone, including calling up your company and asking for a discount. Read his article and see how to save some serious cash.
  • Try to take public transportation for a week – If you’ve been driving to work every day, you might not know how easy it is to use public transportation to get there. Research your city’s public transportation routes and see if you can arrive without a car!
  • Instead of going out to a movie or event with your family, stay in and set up a family game night.
  • Small changes can lead to big wins. What small changes have you implemented that are saving you money?
