Make lists of what you need and where to get it at a good price, so you don't end up paying more for it elsewhere.

Keep good choices at hand.

Extra food at work for days you forget your lunch. Saves money, in that you buy wisely ahead of time instead of a buying a quick fix. Probably it will be a better choice nutrition-wise as well

H-Half portions particularly when dining out and even with take-out food. We mostly bring food home, but split an entree, and maybe fix a salad at home if we need more. Sometimes at restaurants we'll split an entree and maybe get an appetizer or something to split. We save money, and we aren't stuffed!

E - Exercise creatively. You don't alawys have to go to a gym or buy fancy equipment to use at home. Sometimes the most basic activities can be the most fun. Chase your kids (if you have any) up and down the stairs or around the house. Go for a hike outside. Go sledding in the winter, or swimming in the summer. Make exercise fun, and you'll want to do it more often!

D-Drive Purposefully. I Plan my errands ahead in an organized manner in order to prevent running all over and wasting gas. I try to stick to a particular area with the most stores that I frequent. It is also beneficial to have a list of what you need from each type of store to prevent overspending,duplicates, and unnecessary or impulsive spending. This helps me with impulsiveness.

What tips or advice can we give ourselves to help us save some money?

Let's start with A and see if we can get through the alphabet.

A - Ask yourself "Do I really need it?"

OK, maybe that is too strict. Maybe I really want something I don't really need, and I can afford it. I will ask myself, "Do I really want it, or will I regret having bought it a month from now?" "Will it just end up in the corner of a closet somewhere?" "Will having it really improve my life in any way?"
