Switch to Fluorescent light bulbs, they use 65-75% less energy. They also land 10 times longer.
If you feel like 78ºF is too hot in the summer, try using your ceiling fan to create a wind chill effect, allowing you to raise the thermostat setting about 4°F with no reduction in comfort.
Unplugging appliances will also save you money.
Make sure you clean coils of your AC at least twice a year, straightening them out while you’re at it.
And if you feel like the dryer is taking forever to get your clothes nice and warm, double check to make sure the lint catcher is empty. Sometimes even a few times during one cycle. You won’t believe how much faster things dry. Also, be sure to clean your air filters once a year and check to make sure your home’s insulation isn’t pulling away in any spots
Go to a friend's house
read a book
go outside and play sports
get a cheap or free-of-cost hobby
watch television
Check online or in advertisements in newspapers to see when stores will have sales

Its first California stores made it a coast-to-coast chain. Dollar General Market stores, with more fresh produce, meat, and dairy, are opening in at least 110 locations by year’s end. Its revamped site has new merchandise, coupons, grilling tips, and more.

You do not need fifty hats or twenty scarfs
Buy Online
Most of the time it will be cheaper plus you get a coupon code with your purchase.
Family Dollar:
Its stores have bigger grocery sections, plus thousands of new products, including food and health and beauty items. You’ll also find Redbox kiosks.
Dollar Tree:
The chain has more freezer and refrigerator cases with lots of new food in its regular stores, plus Dollar Tree Market Stores that are twice the size of the typical store and sell groceries.

Using credit cards leads to temptation so you will end up buying more than what you can afford
99 cents only:
Club 99 is a new bulk- sales program. Join in stores or sign up online and you can buy cases of products and have them shipped free for pickup at any store. The chain is now running contests and promotions. For example, you can design a reusable bag and win a shopping spree, or be among the first nine shoppers at a grand opening and buy a 22-inch flat-screen TV for 99 cents.
