Whether you've lost your job or are just trying to be more conservative because of the recession, everyone could use little tips for saving money.

Did you know that you can put your Netflix account on hold if you need to? Maybe things are crazy but you don't want to outright cancel, or maybe you're planning a trip and don't want to waste the money.

To put your account on hold, just go into "Your Account" from your Netflix homepage. Under "Your Plan" in Account Information, just click "Put on hold."

Make sure the day you set it up is the day that you want the hold to start, and pick your reactivation date. Also make sure that all of the DVDs they've sent you have been sent back.
