5. Hunt For Coupons
If you like shopping online, get the chrome extension Honey which automatically clips coupons for you and adds them to your checkout. If you venture off into the real world, see if your stores have apps that give you coupons (like Target's Cartwheel) or if you can find some coupons yourself online. It will take a little bit of research and clicking around, but if you can save anywhere between two to 50 dollars with a couple of search words, why not do it?
