Now that this is a weekly feature here at SingleGuyMoney, I find myself looking for more ways to make sure I save money throughout the week. That, my friends, is a good thing. I thank all of you so much for visiting my blog and leaving your comments, kind words and encouragement. I hope my blog is inspiring you to start fixing your finances.

This week, I saved money by:

Taking my lunch to work.
I am already starting to notice the difference in the amount I am spending for eating out. I only went out to lunch one day this week instead of eating out all five days. Estimated Savings: $25.00

MyPoints. I've been a member of MyPoints for over 5 years. This is one of the easiest ways to bring in a little extra money for doing what you already do. Basically, all you need to do is click on the emails they send you and you earn points. You can also earn points by shopping thru their online portal. I'm sure this has been explained on numerous other blogs and websites so I will not go through it again. One tip I will offer is to use a separate email account from your everyday email account. I redeemed my points and received a $25 Target giftcard and a $10 Shell gas card. Savings: $35

    We try to use up to 10% of our Grocery money on bulk purchase items. We then buy deep on the stores weekly loss leaders.

    It is an easy way to stretch your money.

    I shopped at Walgreens, as detailed on my blog--$140 worth of merchandise for $3.51 OOP--with rebates coming still coming.
