take a small cash allowance each way say $40.  put away a "secret" $50 in your wallet in case of emergency....but never use it.   you will be amazed at how much you will save over a year or two.

My tip:

Never use change!

When you pay for something in cash and get coins back, hold on to them and everynight when you get home put the change in a jar, or big bowl. If everyone in the house does this you have a vacation fund in change before you know it!

For those with intangible assets reinvest all divedends for as long as possible.  This saves a lot of $ in fees the longer it is done and helps with tax liability.

Getting ill from consuming salmonella-contaminated food is painful and expensive to cure.  Be sure to avoid spreading germs by washing your hands after handling raw meats like chicken, pork or beef.

Wash your hands with soap after using the restroom.  You don't have to use hand sanitizers; soap will suffice.

If you have to pay service fees to access your bank account from an ATM, join a credit union that offers free ATM access.  That way, you will save on ATM access fees.
