When I bought my PS3 I made a rule for myself: “Never pay more than $20 for a game.” I never get the hot new releases right away, but I have over a dozen great games that I didn’t spend a ton of money on! IYAMCHEAP

I always make sure to check my receipts when I buy things. Many stores offer free surveys that, if completed, will give you a discount on your next purchase, rewards points or a chance to win prizes (such as free groceries). IYAMCHEAP

I have convinced three different coworkers to give me their coupon inserts from their newspapers because I think $1.50 is too much to spend weekly for my own paper. So, each week, I get three of each coupon! IYAMCHEAP.

A couple of my friends and I like to go out to eat a couple times a month to catch up. The problem with that is that we all have college bills to pay, one of us is planning a wedding, and only one of us has a full-time job. Our solution? We only go out after 9 pm and only to places that have half-price appetizers. We’ve found a few places in our area that offer specials on drinks too. Last time we went, I got queso, a giant bowl of chips, and a few Guinness’s for less than $10. IYAMCHEAP

I visit a freebie message board I have bookmarked called Slickdeals. I’ve gotten great freebies from this website, from magazine subscriptions to food to clothes! Simply takes a ‘junk’ email you don’t mind spam being sent to and a few minutes of your time to check what is new (I do it each day). There is even a section where you can look into taking surveys and what sites are good. The people who visit rate each post so it’s fairly easy to tell what is a good idea or not! IYAMCHEAP

I buy all my kids clothes at ARC or Goodwill on their 1/2 off Saturdays. When I can outfit 2 growing kids for a week for under $20 in nice clothes…SCORE! The only things I buy brand new for them are undies (hygiene) and shoes (fit and length of wear). Most of all IYAMCHEAP!

I buy bread at the discount bread stores. It is often 2-3 day old bread that is less than 1/2 the cost of even sale bread at the grocery store. So I get the really healthy fiber rich breads for a lot less. IYAMCHEAP!

Every time I get wings, I save the towelettes I don’t use and stash them in my car. IYAMCHEAP
