Sometimes I find someone who’s said it first, or said it better.Coinstack

TheSimpleDollar blogger came up with 40 ways to save money. If it’s time to trim spending it’s an awesome list! It covers categories ranging from entertainment to automobiles.

I’d add a couple things I’ve done –

  1. I have a little herb garden (thanks for the inspiration, Dorothy – you know who you are!). Basil, oregano, thyme, rosemary and yes, sage. Easily saves $10/month
  2. I moved my banking to a credit union, and dropped my banking fees by at least $60/year, probably more
  3. I moved to shaw digital phone. This isn’t supposed to be a commercial for them, but I have to say, I’m saving a good $15/month plus got awesome service. (anyone else love the fact that if they can’t take your call right away, you get to hang up, but you’re still in the queue, and they call you back? now there’s a concept – don’t hog your customer’s time – let the customer get on with their day! but I digress)
