      "Bankrate's article Build a 52 Week Savings Plan with the 52 Week Money Challenge is an interesting money challenge that will help in saving money. The challenge is saving a small amount of money each week in order to build up a savings, take a small vacation, or whatever you may feel like doing after a year of following the plan."

      "Easy come, easy go, right? Well, with Savings Track I can keep track of my money and make sure it doesn't "go" quite so quickly! Savings Track makes it easy for me to create goals for my money savings, and to keep me on target. I love the control it gives me in setting financial goals for myself."

I have been able to save over double the amount I was saving every month with just a few quick and easy lifestyle changes. Some very good advice in here that I have yet to even touch, highly recommend."

      "While there are so many great ideas and useful suggestions here, the one that really saved me money was #23 Try a smaller carrier or a pay-as-you-go plan. The smaller carriers are cheaper for my needs, and you still get great service. Also, while some of the ideas I was already doing, I found at least five things I wasn't and hadn't even thought of. Great article."

      "Wikihow's recommendations on how to save money has helped me. I have started to use their recommendation to keep a monthly budget of my expenses. I now write down every single thing I purchase on a daily basis. This has taken away stress of not knowing how much I have spent monthly on food and bills. So this way I have kept within my budget and my family is much happier that I spend less."

      "I'm an online shopping addict. I confess and cannot lie. I cyber shop like no tomorrow and E-Commerce sites probably have me as a frequent shopper based on endless daily visits. The thing is, I'm always searching for great deals, but really, who isn't. I found this site, Offers.com, and let's get one thing straight, this site offers all the most current and up to date deals and coupons I could ever dream of. Need new sneakers, Offers.com has my back and I'm looking at Brand new sneakers from New Balance with a killer 15% off deal and free shipping. The wife loves browsing through Offers.com because there are so many deals from the apparel stores as well as the big department stores. I've wasted so much time in the past just randomly web searching for items and browsing to dead end links but I've found that with Offers.com just about any store and any need I'm looking for can be found here. It saves me so much time and the money savings with the coupons and promos is excellent. I've bookmarked Offers.com and it's basically my starting homepage for both my home desktop, laptop, as well as my work desktop. What can I say, I'm an online shopping addict and Offers.com is just feeding the need."

      "I'm always faced with the problem of having too many accounts and passwords to remember. It's hard for me to keep track of everything since it's all online now. My bank accounts, credit card accounts, and investment accounts are all over the place so it's annoying when I'm on my mobile and go to check my balances. I have to constantly open up a handful of apps and then switch back and forth to make sure things are steady. I found this wonderful app called PocketGuard and have been using it for the past month and this is a really good app for my needs. It categorizes and organizes my expenses so I'm always on top of my finances. I can manage my bank accounts, credit and debit cards as well. I really like how I can sync my loans, savings, and other finances and it gives me spending charts and graphs to help visualize how I'm spending. This is terrific for me because I'm terrible at budgeting and keeping track of my finances. I can now set my own limits and there are notifications that let me know when I'm getting to close to that limit I set. My favorite thing about this app, PocketGuard is that I have all my important accounts in one app now. That need to constantly open different apps and switch back and forth are over for me. There are in-app purchases that will allow greater control so be aware of that. Other than that, this is safe and secure app with simplicity that dummy users, like myself, will find easy to and intuitive to use."

      "Having been on a budget my entire life, I've grown to love cutting coupons. It's a way of life for me, and having more resources is always a blessing. That said, Hopster doesn't offer the best deals, and it's actually pretty bad. I'd stick to Coupon.com, personally, and use coupons that come from your retailers website and weekly ad. You'll save more money that way."

RetailMeNot has been one of my main go-to websites lately and I'm quite happy with it. Heck, it even allowed me to chomp down on a free pizza the other day."

Digit is an app that makes it easy to save money. The app monitors your spending habits every few days and saves money from your account so my money won't be gone every pay period!"

      "ShopAtHome claims to save you money while you shop at your favorite stores. While that may be true for small purchases, others have stated that they stop paying out and come up with excuses as to why they avoid paying. Ask yourself how they are making money if all they do is give you cash back. Do they sell your data? Do yourself a favor, cut out the middleman and look for legitimate coupon codes from the actual stores themselves, or wait for deals to come by."

It's a great book from 1998 that talks about how to handle your money and being frugal. I've learned so much from this book about saving money. I recommend it to all my friends and family.

      "I have read this book cover to cover at least three times. The book restates what Clark Howard says on his radio and television show. I realize not everyone knows about his radio and TV show, but they are both worth listening to. The book is one of my reference manuals when I need to provide advice to a client (I am a CPA) that explains in simple language how to solve a problem. Because of the simple instructions on problem solving, I have seem big smiles on many faces. Read this book if you want to find a way to budget your income and save money to buy what you really need in this tough economy."
