Friday Feedback - Economizing & Saving Money


One of the suggestions we received from a member this week is that the credit union should work on teaching people different ways that they can economize in order to save money. This is exactly the type of feedback we're seeking from our members. Keep the good ideas coming!

I did a quick Google search for tips on how to save money and came up with a ton of search results and plenty of good ideas. One blog that I came across had this post with 100 great tips for saving money. Here are some of my favorites:

#1 Switch your bank accounts to bank that respects you. (Editorial comment - better yet, join a credit union).

#8 Invite friends over instead of going out.

#40 Try generic brands of items you buy regularly.

#68 Get a crock pot.

#81 Read more.

#100 Never give up.

What other tips can you add to the list?
