- Watch less TV. This can help in a number of ways, from saving money on your electric bill to limiting your access to advertisements that can cause you to spend.
- Make a grocery list before you go to the store – and stick to it. Many people find themselves making impulse purchases just because something is on sale. Sticking to a grocery list will help ensure you only get what you need.
- Turn off the lights every time you leave a room. Wasting electricity is essentially the same as throwing money out the window. Turn off the lights and other devices when you leave the room and you may be surprised at how much you begin to save on your monthly energy bills.
