A few money saving ideas.

1. Use coupons! You can get them everywhere; online, in store, in magazines and newspapers. You can use coupons for groceries of course, but you can find coupons online for almost everything you need to buy.

2. Make your own food. Take your lunch to work and make dinner instead of going out.
Buy family size packages and divide it yourself instead of buying individual sizes.
Buy reusable containers instead of bags.

3. Free samples. You can find enough samples online to stock your whole bathroom with body wash, shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, deodorant and lotion.
Search the weekly adds for all of the grocery stores near your house. You can go to multiple stores to get the best deals on everything you need.
Take the time to go through the clearance aisles and bins in your stores. You can find great deals when you take the time to look for them.

4. Join the websites for the brands you use most often. They often send coupons for new products to their members.

5. Buying store brand and generic items are a good way to save but you should still compare prices in store to see if brand names are on sale or if a coupon will make it cheaper to buy the brand name product.
