If there were easy ways to save thousands of dollars each year, it’s safe to say that most of us would participate. Sure, taking major steps like refinancing your mortgage, or selling toys such as boats and pricey gadgets can substantially improve your financial picture. But perhaps more impressive are the following “hidden” ways to cut costs, which take little effort, yet result in big discounts. Note: The savings listed here are merely estimates for illustration purposes only.

Utilize Discounts
Long gone is the stigma attached to coupons. These days, many local grocers offer impressive weekly discount certificates of $10 to $20 to loyal customers in an effort to stay competitive. Even Costco distributes coupon books with additional savings for members, and online coupon services let you select discounts on products that you normally buy. And don't forget to check your mailboxes for the LakeStyle Savings Guide and the Roseville Savings Guide, which offer savings at restaurants, shopping, services, salons, spas and more. And if you do not receive them at your home, you can download them for free through our Web site. By utilizing coupons at your favorite stores, you can save up to $50 a month. Those bills are no small potatoes.
Potential Annual Savings: $600
