Frugal Clothing and Transportation Hints

Clothing * For kids, don't go over the top with the brand names, especially since the kids will grow out of them quickly. * For adults and older teens, don't buy really trendy clothes that will only last one season. Buy classical fashionable clothing that will last, and get trendy with accessories. * Buy shirts and ties or blouses and just one suit -- accessorizing is cheaper. * Buy a few pieces of quality clothing as opposed to lots of cheap clothing. They will last a lot longer.

* This goes without saying, but buy clothing in the off-season and on sale. You will save a tone of money. Transportation * A gas saving tip I just learned: put your car in cruise control whenever you can. It has cut my gas bill in HALF. * If you live in a metropolitan area, try walking around the city as opposed to taking a bus or a train.

In New York, you can even get there faster sometimes! :-) * Maintain your car -- tire pressure, oil changes, everything. Preventative maintenance is way cheaper than repairs. * Never use cheap gas - use quality gas and the correct octane for your car. It may seem more expensive, but it's cheaper in car repairs in the long run. * Don't be afraid to walk, even in the winter. It's great exercise and it saves a ton of money. The Change Jar I have a change jar. Every time I pay for something, I always use bills and get the change. I put the change in the jar. You wouldn't believe how much money you can save! This money could be entertainment money, allowance for the kids, put it in a savings account or saved for emergencies.

This change jar has saved my butt many times over the years, and is a great way to have "found" money at the end of the month. .
