2. Start taking cold showers, but make it quick if you find this uncomfortable.


You'll save money on your energy bill, and if you take shorter showers (because why wouldn't you, cold showers are the worst) you'll also save on your water bill!

5. Give up juice and soda, and drink water instead!


Instead of blowing $5 here and there on carbonated and sugary drinks that you don't really need, save that money and just drink water. Plus, you'll also stay hydrated!

6. Put aside $10 every week and save up for something you really want.


Use this to avoid splurging on impulse purchases. This will help you save for things you want, and you have to think about it extra hard while you save up!

12. Ditch the car every chance you get!


Take advantage of public transportation or carpooling... this way you not only save money on gas, but also on vehicle maintenance costs. You can be productive on your commutes this way as well.
