Budget Tips and Tricks

You want the truth? Creating and sticking to a budget is a pain. It takes dedication, daily effort, and compromise. We each develop our own smart saving style and tricks over the years, which is why we started the How Do You Save? group for you to divulge your winning tactics. We want you to dole out your advice to other SavvySugar readers trying to save a little moola and learn from their experiences — particularly as we all buckle down and try to set a smooth savings course for 2010.

I'm not good at traditional budgetting, so instead I just make sure that I don't overspend on certain things - I have stopped buying my lunch, I try not to go shopping as much, and I don't go to the grocery store on my lunch hour and spend on things we don't need. I make sure to conserve at home whenever possible, buy in bulk, call the cable company when the bill is skewed etc. That way I can save money in certain areas but don't have to actuall budget like a crazy person.

Buy what you want the first time! (if you can afford it)Example: You want Jeans A, but they're a little pricey so you think you're being frugal by buying Jeans B, which are cheaper and not so great.However, Jeans B just aren't working! They look and feel terrible. But now you've worn them and can't take them back (or at least shouldn't...) And so what do you do? You go buy Jeans A. You've paid for two pairs of jeans and will only get use out of one! Wasted money.
