Consider This: Shop at garage sales. You can often find new or gently used items for extremely low prices.

Clothing: Shop at thrift and consignment stores located in wealthier areas. These stores often offer new or like-new brand name clothing for extremely low prices.

Clothing: Shop at thrift and surplus stores. If you are willing to invest the time searching, you will likely discover name brand merchandise for extremely low prices.

Holiday / Gift: Shop for holiday decorations a year in advance. After a holiday, the merchandise is typically offered at a discounted rate.

Household and Utilities: Showers generally require less water than baths, so take baths sparingly. Also, keep showers short. If you don't already own one, install a low-flow shower head that uses around 2.5 gallons per minute to further increase savings.

 Time Saving Tips

Priorities: Before beginning a task, identify your goals. You will not accomplish your goals if you don't know what they are. Be sure that the work you do moves you toward those goals.

Goals: Before doing something, consider the consequences. Are they positive or negative? Will this activity add value to your life? When possible, use your time only for things that benefit your life and move you toward your goals.

Consider This: Before leaving for an appointment, call for confirmation. A thirty second phone conversation could save you a thirty minute drive.

Priorities: Being busy is not synonymous with being effective. Be sure that you focus on tasks which move you toward your goals.

Cleaning: Clean from top to bottom to avoid dirtying things you have already cleaned. Dust off furniture before sweeping the carpet.
