How would you save $100/month?
I am curious if you needed to find an extra $100/month in your budget where would you find it? ANy ideas for saving or making an extra $100 per month. Tips that can help someone who is already fairly frugal most appreciated. (I don't go to starbucks enough to cut it out and save $100 a month).
When you have less you make due with less.
The best way to save money if possible is to have money (automatically) set aside from your payroll check with either direct deposit for a savings account or if you're saving for long-term retirement have it put in a 401K or IRA.
If you get paid twice a month they'll deposit $50 per pay period on your behalf into any account you designate.
I was going to say I'd save about $35-40 a month if I stopped buying a coffee every morning but since you don't drink coffee enough...
If you drive then try driving less or using public transportation if possible, pack lunches for work/school instead of buying them. I save a little money buy not subscribing to cable TV (I stream shows online instead) and trying to use less electricity at home.
As for making money you could try to pick up odd jobs like housecleaning, dog walking, babysitting, things like that.
I joined Bubblews and redeem once every 2 weeks. You must $50.00 to redeem, this is my $100.00
I would get rid of cable and also just use a pay-as-you-go cell phone.
My husband and I just watch PBS instead of the junk on regular TV, so it pays off in many ways. We also don't do texting or web surfing on phones, so pay-as-you-go is nice and cheap for our mobiles.
I'd start also buying cheaper, but healthy foods: carrots, bananas, beans, potatoes, peanut butter, tuna, spaghetti, generic tomato sauce, and chicken legs are some major staples that are way cheaper than prepared foods.
I think people can save a little money employing these three things.

I'm stumped (and a little pissed) because I still have not received my Amazon payment. Amazon is indicating that it was direct deposited on 12/29 - usually I get it right away, sometimes even a day or two before it shows. My bank has no record of any deposit coming in from Amazon. ...
