Don't run water long

Brushing your teeth while leaving the water running the entire time can waste a lot of water, especially if you have a big family.

Play games with just a deck of cards

You can play a lot of games with just a deck of cards. They cost very little and are great fun for kids and adults. You can save money rather than buying expensive toys all the time. I have some simple games I thought of on my Fun Card Games blog.

Share the house phone

If you share just one phone in the house you can save a lot of money. If you have kids and everyone has their own phone, you will pay much more per month for the additional lines. Use e-mail to save money on long distance. You can write around the world to someone for just the Internet cost per month.

Walking is great

Walking is great exercise and it cost nothing. If you don't have money to buy exercise machines, walking is a great way of getting fit for free.

If you rent a car

If you must rent a car on your vacation, check to see the prices for certain models and also if it is cheaper for renting the car for a day or the entire weekend.

Cut the vacation time short

You can cut your vacation short by a day or two and save money. Try to visit all the places you want to see in a shorter time frame.

Ask for a refrigerator

You can save money when you travel if you have a refrigerator in your hotel room. You can buy your own drinks and food at the supermarket and keep them cold in there rather than eating out all the time.

Don't rent a car

If you are travelling and just are going to be staying in the local area of the airport, you can save money by not renting a car for the week and using public transportation.
