In fact, you can do it simply — without having to physically put cash aside each month too!

Check out these 5 ways to save $50 a month.

Here are a few of my favorites:

  • Shop the outer aisles at the grocery store.
    This is where the healthier foods are kept. You’ll save money and lose weight if you shop there and avoid the processed foods in the middle.
  • Choose recreation instead of entertainment.
    When you change  your thinking to doing something recreational (like hiking, biking, or going to a local park and playing frisbee), then you’ll save money. Things like movies and theatre give you only a few hours of enjoyment and cost more.
  • Visit your local library.
    You can surf the net, check out the latest bestseller, and even check out DVDs. Do all this instead of buying new, and you’ll save money.

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

You can save even more money on your water bill. Have you ever thought about harvesting rain water? Some enterprising people are saving a lot of money each month on their water bills by harvesting rain water.
