I totally agree, buy only what you need. Do not buy just because it is on sale...

I like to combine rebate programs, such as Ebates, with store credit discounts (stores that give 5% off for using their card.) I do this by ordering online, paying with the store credit card, then picking the items up at the store, or take advantage of any free shipping to my home that they are offering. Oh, and then I pay the credit card balance off at the end of the month. If I've gotten a coupon from the store for any additional money off, that increases my savings!

Totally true, another fact, don't buy under emotional distress, such as anger, hurt or depressed.

When going shopping, wait until you have several places close together and then make one trip.

Try saving $3 -5 dollars a month and you will be surprised a the end of the year! Ten dollars a month is even better!

I have my paycheck direct deposited into my savings account and only transfer out the amount needed to pay bills - the difference remain in savings and grow each month.

Lists are a must and don't stray. You will find yourself with a wild bill. Remember to check sake items and possibly stock up.

I always round up to the next whole dollar when inputting check amounts in check register and that is my secret balance.  it can add up pretty quickly.  My daughter swears by it also.

Make a commitment to deposit a set amount of money into your savings account each pay period. Multiple savings accounts can be helpful for saving for major purchases or expenses, one for your emergency fund, one for annual real estate taxes, one for Christmas gifts, etc.

I AGREE WITH NO FEES.  I CAN GET CASH AT THE ATM AT MY BANK AT ANY TIME WITHOUT FEES.  I CAN ALSO GET CASH BACK AT MANY MERCHANTS WHEN MAKING A PURCHASE.  ALSO NO FEES.
