Make a budget and beat it!

Try making a budget for yourself (Mint.com is a great free tool to do this). Set yourself a monthly budget. Each month, try to decrease your allowances by 5% (for the things you CAN change) and try to stick to the new budget. Alternatively, reduce your biggest spending categories by 10%! For me, that's restaurants and eating out - good on the wallet and the belly.

Dye hair 2x from 1 box

If you use same color all the time ,you can use only 1/2 of the tube of dye and colorant from your Loreal box .I put the rest in fridge until next time .Take it out 3 hours before I use it ,to get room temperature .I color my hair for years and if you do the roots only, you don't need a whole box.

Online Promo Codes Website

When shopping online I stop by www.retailmenot.com and search for promo codes before checking out. Not all codes work, but I can usually get free shipping, a few dollars off the purchase, or a free item for the trouble!

Coupons or Promo codes

Lets say you know that you're going to eat at a specific resturant or shop at a specific store, search the internet for coupons before you go. You can often find printable coupons online. For example, we got a $10.00 off printable coupon for Buca di Beppo (franchise).
