If you are over 65, remember to ask about senior discounts at stores.

We are denying the urge to eat out and investing the savings. Over the months of 2016 it has worked!

Save...save...save and keep health insurance. A major health situation can devastate what you thought were adiquit savings and being set up properly. No one can predict the ultimate health cost needed might be, but I can tell you from personal experience that it can devastating. My wife suffered a ruptured brain anurisum and was life flighted to a hospital hundreds of miles away for a ten hour brain surgery. Two years of treatment and recovery were needed but she is finally back thank God. But as you can imagine it did wipe out our savings. Even with insurance. Be prepared for the unexpected.

Find a good repair shop for you cars.  They are usually cheeper than a dealer.

I find that my savings increase as I become patient in my spending.  If I add some wait time before I purchase something that I want but don't need, I will end up deciding against the purchase.  For me, save first, spend later - keeps me on track.

I have saved large amounts of money by buying only cars with excellent repair histories and then keeping them for 10-12 years. My last car had only one small repair over 11 1/2 years. I keep them well-maintained. I pay the cars off in 3-5 years and love the period of 7 years or so with no car payment!
