When it comes to saving money, I think we overcomplicate it. I am all for saving $1,000 in a month if that were realistic, but it is not always that way. I, however, do love saving money in simple ways. When it comes to saving money, sometimes you just need to go back to the basics. Check out the simplest ways you can save money.

Use cash

Using cash is going to help you save money. It hurts when you spend cash, trust me. Using a debit card or credit card makes it seem like you have endless amounts of money to spend, when you do not.

Start selling what’s in your house

Instead of buying items, start selling what you have in your house. Even if you don’t have anything worthy of selling, going through your things will keep you busy and prevent you from buying.

Sign up for freebies

Anymore, when I go out to eat, I try to sign up as a rewards member first. This allows me to get a free item, which helps reduce the cost of my family’s meal.

Just go without

Americans seem to think they should go buy whatever they need right away. This is a false sense of instant gratification. Do you REALLY need a new car? Do you REALLY need new pots and pans? It’s okay to go without something occasionally.

DIY yourself

Another simple way to save money is to just do it yourself. If you cannot do it yourself, then trade skills with a friend, who can help you out.

Get rid of a bad habit

Smoking, drinking, unnecessary driving, these do really add up. Getting rid of a bad habit it a very simple, but smart way to save money.

Go to the library

If you have ever been to a book store to buy books, you know this can add up quickly. My advice to you is to go to the library. Get things for free and then return them. It’s so simple, I’m starting to wonder why I don’t go to the library more often.

Save your change

Everyone has quarters and dimes sitting around. Save your change and then cash it in when you get a decent amount. This is such a simple way to save money that it is often forgotten about.

I'm always looking for new ways to save money. I actually like that "just go without" is one of them. I'm pretty sure people rarely use that one.

I'm being going nuts with the letgo app, gets you better money than having a yard sale. Also been couponing, grabbing freebies, entering contests, participating in studies and surveys, swagbucking, etc. I love all the ways to save!
