TightWad Tuesday

Tightwad Tuesdays

A couple of quick tips today for saving a bit of the green stuff.... (dollars)

1. If you have online banking and free bill pay as I do, take advantage of it. I have saved so much on reordering checks and stamps. Plus only a few minutes every payday to tell the bank who to pay and when to pay them!

2. Turn the air conditioner up or use fans. Having a fan blow across you makes you actually feel cooler.

3. Turn off lights, the TV and the computer when they are not in use. This is a no brainer, but I am constantly reminding the kids t do is. (I sound like my dad!)

4. Get your books and DVD's from the library.Read magazines at the library or online. Your local library can be a great asset and resource.

5.Take advantage of employer 401(k) matches. If your employer matches 401(k) contributions, do everything you can to take full advantage of that match. It's free money!!
