10: 25 ways to save money – updated for 2017!

This is an excellent list for folks who a really looking for ways to save. Unfortunately, I’m not too keen on the first item on the list: ebates. The rest of the list is excellent. Don’t get me wrong, ebates is a great way to get a few extra percent points off of your purchase price of goods. However, their ads make me cringe. When people say “I made $5,000 buying stuff,” what they are really saying is, I have spent well over $100,000 buying stuff (I don’t need.) In my opinion, that’s no way to save money. Again, the rest of the list is great.
