Frugal Tip Friday -- The 10 Commandments of Frugalness

I have so many great money-saving tips floating around, that I thought I'd share 'em with you. Times are tough and getting things, reusing things, or making things on the cheap really helps. Thus begins, Frugal Tip Friday.
Each week, I'll try to post a helpful hint or tip to help save us all some dough.
I'll start with some overall basics and then get into the random stuff. :)

10 Commandments for Being Frugal:

  1. Never pay retail for anything.
  2. Know your prices. Create a price comparison book.
  3. Watch for sales.
  4. Use coupons. (Sign up for stores’ bonus/rewards programs.)
  5. Always check the clearance rack first.
  6. Recycle as much as you can—think of alternate uses.
  7. Trash Pick (also called Dumpster Diving.) Wear black and go at night. (Just kidding! :) )
  8. Keep a tape measure in your purse, diaper bag, or vehicle.
  9. Research purchases through Consumer Reports to find the best deal (The cheapest is not always the best.)
  10. Keep your receipts (always check for errors.)
Let's start saving some money!
