Saving Money

Save $50 a Day

We offer ways to cut expenses on the basics, such as your car, home and banking, and snag travel, tickets and dinner for two without guilt.

Saving a few dollars here and there is great. But how about a few hundred dollars -- or even thousands?

It's easier than you think to trim costs and put more money back in your pocket. We sliced food bills by $2,384, cut $4,277 in costs at home, found $3,539 in travel savings, chopped $5,536 from fees on your finances, and then shaved $2,514 from entertainment. And it all adds up to $18,250 per year -- or $50 a day.
