Save Money On Utilities: Lower your thermostat in winter and raise it in summer. Or get a smart thermostat.

You can save 10% on energy by dialing your thermostat down by 7-10 degrees for 8 hours a day, according to Energy.gov. Smart thermostats may be pricey but you’ll break even in about two years (or less if you get a rebate), then you can save more than $100 a year, according to Nest, the most popular smart thermostat. Some electric companies will also give you a rebate for buying a smart thermostat. You can also get a smart thermostat you can control from your phone so you don't have to worry about being there to change it in case you forgot when leaving for vacation.

Or switch to Xoom energy and save (available in select areas, check your area here: http://buff.ly/2nbqD80) - Select your state to see if Xoom is availabl in your area

Get off a cell phone contract.

If you’re shopping for a new phone, installment plans offer a better deal than a multiyear contract. If you’re in a multiyear contract now with a termination fee, see if it makes sense to move to a different provider.

Our second-biggest expense tends to be transportation, keeping costs low here is where youll likely get your next biggest savings. Strategies: walk, use public transportation, bike, carpool, get better rate on car insurance (use trustworthy broker I have great sources), refinance your car, buy a hybrid (get a really good deal here to make it worth your while though be careful), use GasBuddy app to save on gas, rotate tires regularly and keep them inflated (using nitrogen to inflate means you dont inflate nearly as as often as with air), take out extra junk in your trunk, tune up your engine, dont let your car idle, drive more calmly (saves on stress too!)
