Saving, Saving, and more Saving!!

Is there something that you've been dying to do, but don't think it's in your budget? Well, I suggest you rearrange your budgets and cut some costs in various areas to make that extra money available for saving.  Saving provides you more opportunities to do the things you want, need, and love to do in life.

I'm all about saving money and I like to do so for a number of reasons:
  • It's nice having money in case of emergencies
  • I love having extra money to take big trips
  • I like being financially responsible
  • I love knowing that I'm not wasting money on certain things
Why do you like saving? What's your motivation? Please share, because I'd love to hear your take!!

I do several things to save a lot of money and also get the most out of the money I spend. Here are few of my methods:
  • Clip and use coupons
  • Join store rewards programs to gain points for shopping
  • Use Ebates, which gives cash back checks quarterly on purchases
  • Participate in paid survey programs
  • Cook during the week as much as I can to avoid spending money at restaurants/fast food places
  • Wait to buy big ticket items around a holiday when there are huge and great markdowns
  • TRY to only buy clothes if I really need them for an event
  • Save all additional money from yearly raises
  • Do private tutoring and save all income from it (NOTE: Set your own hourly rate;))
  • Only do major grocery shopping once a month
What do you do to save money? Share with others and help them become financially responsible :)

Until my next two cents,


  1. I agree with all of the above. I absolutely hate wasting money but at the same time I hate feeling that I have to do without. Therefore, saving money for things that I really need allow me to live freely and do the things that I really enjoy. Sisters With Bank will definitely motivate us to do more someday;)

  2. I agree 100% Toya!! Thanks for commenting:)
