The bank that I use has a "Way to Save" plan.  Since I'm still working I have allocated so much a month to go into that plan.  It has been a great way for me to save!

Don't use ATM, instead get cash back at grocery store. NO fees.

If you are a veteran, shop at a commissary for savings better than Walmart pricing.

Make sure you deposit some money into a savings account every paycheck and try your best not to touch it.  Don't focus on that account much, out of sight out of mind.

If possible, have your savings direct deposited.

At the end of the day, I empty my change into a container.  Last time I cashed it in on my way to vacation, I had enough to pay for parking at the airport for 8 days.  I also have a little taken out from each pay and put directly into a savings account which I don't have a ATM card.

Go out for lunch not dinner - the menu portions are healthier (smaller) and less expensive.  Or if you get take out, our favorite trick right now is to get the chinese-dinner-for-4 (4 entrees with rice and 8

appetizers) on sale as take-out from our local mega-grocery store.  That purchase becomes 4-5 meals for the two of us at home, once I make extra rice for the meals after the first two.  Its a great savings and we have good vareity in choosing four different entrees.

Always find ways to put a little more into my 401(k), bank savings, and other savings/retirement plans, with every pay check.
