Three Money Saving Tips

1. Combine your services and save some money. For about $100 a month, you can get cable or satellite TV, local and long-distance telephone service, plus high-speed Internet service. This is more often than not cheaper than it would cost for each service separately. The best money saving tips will give you more for less. Of course you will need to call your local phone provider or cable company to see the deals that are offered because every area is a bit different.

An added benefit to bundling your services is you will only need to pay just one bill, and you will have just one company to call if you have any issues.

2. If you have a good cell phone plan and you tend to use your cell phone the majority of the time, get rid of your land line. Depending on how much your land line bill is a month you could be saving about $50 a month. I recently did this. I was rarely using my home home and paying close to $50 a month for it. By getting rid of my land line I am saving myself $600 a year.

3. If you don't already have one get a library card. Rather than buying books or DVDs you will only look at once borrow them for free. Libraries also have magazines and newspapers, so you can save money on subscriptions as well. Libraries are also great sources of free entertainment. Check with your own local library but most offer book clubs and children programs that you can join for free.
