With prices up straight across the board, here are some tips on how to spend less and pinch pennies.

  1. Enjoy a tasteful dinner in
    As fun as it is to go out for dinner with friends, it’s not the most economical. Why not consider inviting everyone over for a potluck dinner party in? The perks – you’ll save money, and will be able to hear your conversation 🙂 Check out www.evite.com for classy invitations.
  2. Rent movies instead
    Going to the movies on Friday night may run you $30 with popcorn and snacks. Why not hit the Redbox instead for $1 and make some microwavable popcorn? Savings – $27! (of course, the need may arise, with movies like the Dark Knight, to save up and splurge every so often)
  3. Embrace public transportation
    When given the opportunity, take public transportation. Sure, you may have to wake up a little earlier and get home a little later but you’ll save big time at the pumps. Consider a monthly bus pass is $60-70 — about the same price as a weekly tank of gas if you drive an SUV!

  4. I’m sure you’ve got some great ideas of your own on how to pinch pennies. Would love to hear them!
