If looking for clothing, this is the system I use. I will check garage/yard sales first. You can find tons of great name brand clothes for quarter, nickels, and dimes. If I can't find what I'm looking for there, I go to the Goodwill or Salvation Army. If I still can't find what I'm looking for then I go to the discount stores like TJMax. If I can't find it there, then I will give in and search a clothing store for sale items. I do my best to look for clothes that are not stained, torn, broken zippers, faded, etc... I do look for the tag to see how worn the item is. If the tag is still somewhat starchy, then it hasn't been worn very often.

I seldom go to the mall or shop for clothes at Wal-Mart. Mall prices are so expensive even if they are on sale, and when it gets to the clearance price, you can never find the size or matching piece to go with what you're wanting. Wal-Marts clothes just don't last as long.

Electronics use a lot of electricity. Turn computers/printers/tv's/etc off when not using them.

If your area has an Aldi's, shop there before going elsewhere. They have products that are cheaper (and sometimes better tasting!) than the leading stores' products. Ours also tends to have better strawberries.

Buy generic or homebrands when shopping. Most of the time it tastes just as good as the more expensive labelled brands.

when ever I would fill my gas tank up I would fill it to the brim squeezing every bit of gas in then I heard not to do that because the gas will evaporate so now when the pump clicks I am done!

Try to buy bone-in meat, and learn to debone yourself, part of the cost of buying boneless/skinless food is the labor involved!

Keep tires properly inflated. It keeps you safe and costs less on gas.

Lets use this thread to share our money saving tips. Try to add a money saving tip every week. No matter how big or small the money saving tip is, it could really help someone out that didn't think about it before and who knows, with several money saving tips, it could make a big difference on someone's budget.
