Try to never buy anything you need without some kind of savings.  Use coupons, apps that give you added savings, credit cards that pay bonus points, grocery stores that give you gas rewards, and try to use as many discounts as possible.  We eat out occasionally on the weekends, but we buy gift cards when they are paying double gas points or dollars off savings at the grocery store with credit cards that pay cash back.  We use coupons at these restaurants and restaurant apps to buy our meals with these same gift cards.  We are getting several layers of savings this way!  Also, take your lunch to work every day--this saves you a bunch!  Eating out gobbles up a lot of cash and isn't too good for your health either.

Take advantage of your bank's "Extra Change" service where the bank automatically rounds up your purchase to the next whole number and deposits the difference in your savings account - an effortless way to save!

Great reading! You can never get too much information. Thanks AARP for looking out for us retired folks and soon to be retired. This was helpful information.

Do you know that you can use both electronic coupons AND hardcopy coupons for the same item at merchants like Krogers, Target, etc.  For the SAME ITEM! so if you have $1 off Tide from Sunday's paper and Target's electronic $1 coupon, you same $2.00!!  and that's just one example.

Great idea if you regularly keep up the maintenance. Poorly running vehicles are a hazard and can be very costly.

This contest has been over for 8 months. I would love to know how to unsubscribe from this topic without totally unsubscribing from AARP's emails.

My best money saver is shopping thrift stores on senior days for clothing, housewares, garden tools, paint, etc.

Can't say enough about starting early and being consistent. That's almost more important than the amount saved!
