Easy Ways to Live Frugally

Easy Ways to Live Frugally

As you pay off all those holiday bills and start to think about tax time, a more frugal lifestyle may not sound like such a bad idea. Here are some tips to get you started:
 
- Clean the lint screen on your dryer regularly. A clogged lint screen can guzzle 30% more energy—and start a fire.
- Take advantage of after-season sales. Buy winter, summer and holiday items at the end of the season for the following year.
- Don't order top-shelf drinks. Order the well vodka instead of Grey Goose and save about $10 a martini.
- Make it a lunch date. At most restaurants, lunch costs less than dinner. If you're meeting a business colleague or a date for a meal, suggest lunch.
- Use regular plates instead of paper or plastic. Not only does it cost less, but it also helps keep waste out of landfills.
- Use cruise control when possible to save on gas. Speeding up and slowing down drains your tank.
