1. Utilize the Dollar Store
Dollar stores can have some surprising merchandise for just a dollar. You can get kitchen supplies, discount makeup and even plates, cups and bowls. Check out your local dollar store to save money on essentials.

3. Save your coins!
I'm guilty of letting coins get lost. Keep them in a jar and literally save every penny, and watch the profits stack up.
4. Track your Finances
There are a million apps out there to help you track your finances, and even put them into categories to show what you spend your money on. I use Mint, a free app that shows how much you spend on groceries, utilities, home etc. It can help you cut down unnecessary spending.
5. Pay with cash.
When we pay with cash we can see it leaving our hands. We are less likely to spend if we can physically see how much money we have. Every week go to the ATM and take out the money you're willing to spend for the week, then leave your debit card at home. It'll cut needless spending and teach you how much you actually spend.
