What Are Your Thrifty Tricks?

It's good to have a balance of splurges and frugality. You don't want to deprive yourself, and at the same time, you don't want to go on spending sprees.

Being thrifty is a harder skill to learn than being a spendthrift, so let's share our tips and tricks for slashing our budgets. As for me, I skimp by buying a lot of products from my neighborhood Japanese dollar store, and I'm always amazed at the quality of some of their items. What about you — do you have any frugal tricks up your sleeve?

It's the little things that count. I definately splurg on going out ot eat and shopping, but when it comes to everyday things I'm a bit more "green". Power Bill: unplug EVERYTHING, only have appliances plugged in when in use. Air at 78 when I'm not home (I live in St. Petersburg, FL so it's impossible to let it get any hotter inside), when I'm home I have my fans on and windows open (I crank up the AC when I sleep though!). I also hang dry my clothes. No cable, I live off Netflix/AppleTV and an HD TV Antenna (I can get the first 20 channels with it). I try to bring lunch to work 4 out of 5 days a week. I make huge crock pot dinners and freeze left overs (I live alone, so they can last awhile), I also buy meat when it's on sale and I freeze it. That's all I can think of at the moment...
