By doing a little research, I am almost always guaranteed to find fun, FREE events in my city. Check out the local newspapers for free art walks, free days at zoos and museums, free festivals, etc. Some of these only apply to holidays and special events, but many are monthly community events.

I do not live off very much money and I am doing my best to save, but that doesn't mean I don't enjoy going out every now and then. Groupons are amazing, I have only recently started using them but they save you a lot of money and sometimes just give you really good ideas of things to do. Each day http://www.groupon.com will have a special offer in the city you select, and you can opt to buy into it. Once enough people buy into it, becomes active and you save on that vendor!!
To use http://www.groupon.com just make a free account, select the city for you and start saving!!
I like nuts for snacks, but get bored if they're the same kind day after day. So, I would buy a few cans of different nuts, and mix them all into one container before portioning them out for snacking later. Kind of makes each snack-time a new experience!
Bonus: By doing this, you can take advantage of Buy-One, Get-One Free offers you may otherwise pass up on.
Think you have no time to exercise? Use those minutes you spend just standing. Sometimes when there is a minute left on the timer when I am cooking something, I'll use that minute to do jumping jacks, squats, high knees, etc.
Taking advantage of those idle moments can add up to some time that you are moving.
