Easy Ways to Save Money

Now that I am making money, I am all about spending it. But I know with eating out all the time, getting drinks, going to concerts, and traveling all summer long, saving money is easier said then done. Here are some easy ways to save money!

Cook more meals/Take lunch to work!
While eating out may be easier, and possibly more delicious, cooking can be fun and a huge money saver.

Keep track of perishable foods
Yep, I left almost an entire pineapple go bad because I completely forgot about it. Fresh food is great, just remember to take advantage.

Do not buy coffee/soda
You save so much money by bringing your own drink or even drinking FREE water over coffee or soft drinks, and it is so much healthier.

With gas being so expensive, why not split it and have some company on your commutes! And plan your trips so you are not going all over town for simple errands.

Take advantage of free events
Summer brings so many free events, whether its movies on the lawn, concerts, the beach or just relaxing with a book in the sun, take advantage! **Also, look into Groupon and LivingSocial!

Even if you save just a few dollars a day, it adds up and you can indulge in things that really matter.
