    When you are traveling there are many ways that you can save money. One of the ways that you can save money is on your airplane tickets. If you have traveler’s miles, be sure to use them. In addition, you can often get lower prices by purchasing the tickets as far ahead as you can. You will pay much higher prices if you purchase these tickets at the last minute. At the very least, you should purchase airline tickets at least two months in advance, or you are probably paying too much. This is particularly important if you are going to be traveling during the holiday season.

    One of the best ways to save a couple thousand dollars is to purchase a used car instead of a new one. A new car loses most of its value as soon as it is driven off the lot. As a result, you can save a lot of money by purchasing a car that is already used, but in nice condition. There are some really great deals on used cars out there if you look for one. Take some time to look over Creigs List before you consider purchasing a brand new car. The couple of thousand that you save could be a nice addition to your retirement fund.

    As you strive to avoid debt and to stick to a budget, you may find yourself trying to make do with less. If you take a look at your spending habits and budget, there are probably many areas where you can make do with less. Many Americans feel like they have to have this or that product because their neighbor has it. However, you do not necessarily need this or that product. Often, it is much wiser to make a small sacrifice now instead of a large sacrifice later that will result from a lot of debt.
