1. Get rid of Cable/Satellite! really, who has time to watch TV? If you really need your tv series fix get a free subscription to streaming sites like Hulu or if you want more content pay for the $10 subscription price. I also use Netflix for $10 a month. Paying for both is still a lot better than paying $100 a month for 200 channels of which I may only watch a dozen or so.
2. Get rid of your land phone line. Everyone has a cell phone why have a land line? If you really need one get a Voip service like Vonage for about $20 a month.
3. When shopping for groceries shop at places that give you reward points for gas or goods or services. I like Safeway because you can save up to $1 a gallon depending on how much you spend on groceries per month. Costco gas stations are cheaper as well.
4. Use an egg timer for showers. You'd be surprised how much you can save on your utility bill by cutting your shower time down by half. This also goes along with turning off lights and using using motion sensing lights for outdoor lights instead of leaving area lights on.
