Clipping coupons every week and redeeming them for items you buy anyways can add up to big savings over the long term!!

Use merchants credit cards for special discounts. Target Red Card gives 5% off every purchase plus they donate a portion to our school. Department stores send you special sales and coupon offers. Using the Costco MasterCard, SunTrust Visa or Aadvantage card on everything scores us cash rebates!

Favorite saving tip: at the grocery store, I buy private label brands which are cheaper than national brands and usually are as good. The saving come to $15-20 per month.

Use a credit union instead of a bank.  My credit union does not charge for a checking account, offers a bill payment service that include paying postage for making payments, and pays a higher interest on your account balance than the big banks.

I used to clip every coupon all the time. I realized that I was buying things that I don't normally buy. I now only clip coupons for things that I actually use - what a money saver! Smiley Happy

I agree with driving the old car as a savings tool.   If one stays on top of the maintenance, an older car is much cheaper on an annual basis vs. payments on a new one.
