Have an app on your smart phone that tells you the gas prices in the area so you can go to the cheapest one that is close by.

I am going to start growing my own food in container gardens.  Vegetables cost a fortune at the Grocery store.  You can grow your own vegetables - - freeze, pickle, or can most of it, and also can store many (example: potatoes) for months inside.  This will save tons of money.  Most vegetables produce pretty quickly!  Container gardens don't take up much room and are easy to tend to.

I save in multiple savings accounts.  Each month I put a deposit in each and let them grow.

To save $$$ in and for retirement you can:

visit local area library websites for interesting music, theater and art workshops, hear lectures, learn skills and interesting discussions on current topics and some have museum passes that allow you to visit for free!

rent DVDs from the library for a low cost evening at home- they usually include recently released DVDS, catch up on a TV/Cable past season episodes, learn a skill or scope out an upcoming vacation spot

visit county websites for summer music and plays usually held in county parks in the evening - bring a picnic basket, enjoy the evening!

visit hospital websites as many offer community outreach programs which provide information about a wide range of health topics, senior programs, mediation/yoga etc

look up free museum days, free garden days, national park service events, and free art museum days all for things to do that are fun and save $$$

Ditch cable television and save big bucks. Plenty of free video viewing available on-line and antenna T.V. Buy a used antenna at a thrift store, check out DVDs at your local public library.

I have a full and part time job with pay dates on alternate weeks. $5.00 from each check is direct deposited into my savings account.  Savings grow quickly because I forget about it.
