What do you do to save money?

I am always looking for new ways to save money.  What do you do to save money?

We do the following:
  • Use coupons (but only when we get them for 75%+ off!)
  • Go to the dollar theater ($1.50/person thanks to inflation)
  • Shop at thrift stores
  • Shop at Aldi’s mainly, and then get meat on sale at local stores
  • Make our own wine
  • Do car repairs / home repairs ourselves (meaning Todd does them all! J )
  • Eat In – we only go out to eat about twice a month
  • Pack our lunches (though I DO go out to eat every Wednesday with a co-worker.  That comes out of my allowance money.)
  • Compare prices on utilities to get the best rate
  • Todd and I cut our own hair
