Save on maps

Streets on maps change, but usually not the major roads, at least that often. Minor streets may change, but usually you can still find you way in most cases. If you don't buy a new map each year, you can save a lot of money over time.

Saving picture frames

If you have old pictures you no longer want in picture frames on your wall, or pictures that are just worn out, keep the frames. The picture frames should last forever and you can just keep putting in new pictures all the time.

Don't throw away posters

If you paint a room with posters on the wall, all you have to do is take the posters off the wall and lay them flat down on the side with no tape. They should go back on the wall with no problems.

Save the old computer monitor

Usually if you buy a new computer, the old monitor still works. Rather than buy a new monitor with the new computer, just hook up the old one.

Save those pennies

When you go out shopping, you usually come home with a lot of change. Most people put the change at home and forget about it. If you keep saving the coins, you will have some extra money after some time.

Save old toys and games

You can save money if you have kids by saving the old toys and games they used when they were younger any use them for any new kids that you have now. The old toys and games can also be sold at any garage sale.

Save the old TV set

If you are buying a new TV set in order to get a bigger screen size or the latest LCD or Plasma, save the old TV if it still works. You can use it in another room in the house. The set is also good as a backup set in case anything ever happens to your new TV.

Don't print out every page online

You can bookmark Internet pages and just go back to it when you like. Or you can copy and paste what you want and save it in a notepad file.
