use a clothes line, shop sales, buy second hand, use coupons, shop clearance, reuse things, trade stuff you no longer need for things you can use, call the companies you do business with and see if you can lower your bills at all, plant a garden, ect

If it's useable join freecycle if it's taking up space

Use credit cards and even checking accounts wisely.  Fees for being overdrawn, late, over limit, etc are all unnecesarry and money you'll never see again.

When using cash don't look for change. Round up and put the change in a jar for savings.

When using a debit card/check when you write it in your check book round it up. Trust me, it will help if you forget to write a purchase down and would normally have overdrawn. Not to mention you are just hiding money from yourself.
