Here are a few tricks:
*go to ebay.com to get coupon stacks for stuff you buy (Cascade, Tide, L’Oreal…).
*go to the Post Office to get Lowes Coupons from moving kits.
*Get rid of cable, replace with Netflix streaming-hook to TV with a computer cable. Watch TV episodes on hulu.com.
*Take 2-3 year current clothes to consignment shops, Buffalo exchange, Clothes Mentor or Plato’s closet.
*transfer prescriptions to grocery stores when they offer $25 to do so (I survived a year by doing this)
