Have friends come over instead of going out on the town. It's much cheaper to have a cookout than to go out to the bar.

Once a year shop around for better deals on your Phone, TV, Car Ins, etc. You may be surprised to find you can save a few hundred dollars over the course of a year.

Keep a change jar. Add pocket change and when it is full, roll it and take to the Bank.

Aim for short-term savings goals, such as setting aside $50 every time you get paid. People save more successfully when they keep the short-term goal in sight.

Why buy a $500 bike when one for $150 will get you where you need to go. Don't buy labels and status -buy the things you need.

These days, many banks have machines that count out your pocket change and print out a receipt that you take to the bank teller (not unlike the green machines you see in many a grocery store or big-box store). If you have an account with the bank, there's no service charge; if you don't, there is a service fee of 8% or so...still easier than messing with rolling up coins!
