5 Simple Ways to Make or Save Money

Making and sticking to a budget can seem daunting. Especially sticking to it. (A more in-depth post on budgeting is in the works.) It's helpful to look at new ways you can save --and make-- money in order to make it easier to accomplish. I've rounded up a few articles from various blogs to help on that quest.

Before starting the round up, here are some of my own tips and tricks:
Easy Money Saving Tips Parts 1, 3, and 4

1. The Penny Hoarder suggests mystery shopping as a way to make extra money and even lists the best companies to work for from someone who has done it for many years.

2. Have you ever considered coupoining but didn't know where to start? Cook Craft Love teaches you how to be successful at couponing, starting with couponing 101.

3. Kids' toys are so expensive now. I'm always amazed at prices when I go into the stores. Momless Mom shares tips on how to save on toys.

4. Often, but not always, owning your own home can help you save money and stay within budget. More than a Coupon Queen helps you figure out if buying a home is something you can afford.

5. As as stay-at-home mom, finding new ways to make money seems to be a never ending quest. What Mommy Does has some great suggestions.


Thank you to all the bloggers who let me share their great tips!
