Tip #91: Get your tires rotated.
Rotating your tires can significantly improve your gas mileage and cut down on wear-and-tear. Make sure you do it regularly.
Tip #92: Wash your car after snow storms.
If you live in a cold weather area, make sure that you wash your car after snow storms to clean off all of the salt. This will save you money on maintenance costs in the long run.
Tip #93: Start riding a bike.
Riding a bike is a good way to both get in shape and save money. Do it rather than driving your car everywhere.
Tip #94: Avoid clothes that require expensive upkeep, such as dry cleaning.
Instead of opting for clothes that involve extensive dry cleaning, get clothes that do not require any special care. This will save you a considerable amount of money in upkeep.
Tip #95: Make your own cards to go with gifts.
Use one of the many available sites to create and print out a personalized card. This is considerably cheaper than buying one at the store; and may result in a more personalized card.
Tip #96: Offer to babysit as a gift.
If your friend or family member has children, offer to babysit for their children as a birthday present.
Tip #97: Use Open Source software, rather than expensive, proprietary software.
Open Source software, such as OpenOffice, is free. Consider downloading and using it, rather than using expensive software.
Tip #98: Reduce your printing or print at the office.
Print less or print only when you can do it for free. This can easily save you 400 pesos or more each month.
Tip #99: Print unimportant documents in the draft setting.
Cartridges can last much longer if they are primarily used to print draft-quality documents. From now on, consider using draft for documents that do not need to be high-quality.
Tip #100: Sell your old clothes on eBay.
If you have extra clothing that no longer fits (or that you no longer like), sell it on eBay for some extra cash.
Tip #101: Use eBay to sell off old computers or computer parts.
If you have an old computer that you no longer use, sell it on eBay or at least take it apart and sell its parts, such as the professor, motherboard, and ram.
Tip #102: Use local exchanges to sell old furniture.
Sell your old furniture on local exchange sites. Even if you do not make a lot of money off of each piece, you can at least get someone to haul away your old furniture for free.
Tip #103: Negotiate the price of your car.
Whenever you buy a car, negotiate the price, rather than taking what is offered.
Often, this can save you several hundred dollars.
Tip #104: Bring someone who is good at bargaining next time you purchase a big-ticket item.
If you’re planning to buy a big-ticket item, such as a house or a car or expensive jewelry, bring a good haggler with you. Make sure that this person does the talking and helps you to get a lower price.
Tip #105: Avoid purchasing store warranties.
Store warranties for electronics and other products are often rip-offs. Given the probability of replacement, the cost of the warranty is simply too high.
