    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.

      Good suggestions. But unfortunately i already contribute to my 401K. I am in the process of getting my direct deposit switched.  PPLanning on having everything beyond my budgeted amount go directly to savings (Overtime, bonuses etc)

    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 think the make more money is what I'm gonna have to go w/. Unfortunately public transit isn't an option for me as i commute about 1/2 an hour driving which would be 3-4 hours by bus.

    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.
