Clean out all of your air filters regularly to improve efficiency, cut down on energy consumption, and give you a cleaner quality of air at the same time
2. Coupons! Sales!
Fall in love with sales, discounts, and coupons. These are an absolute savings. Just don’t get stuck buying things which you DON’T need just because they are on sale!
Live on a “30 Day Schedule”, pretending that any money you get after or outside of those 30 days doesn’t exist.
Switch your bank to an organization that respects you as a customer. Look for better rates, lower fees and a friendly staff who explains all of the nitty gritty.

5. Rewards Programs
Take advantage of absolutely EVERY single reward program you can find as a consumer to save money.
