  • Save Time
    Develop a filing system for your mail and bills, so you don’t get intimidated by one big pile of envelopes.

    Save Money
    Everyone loves their digital video recorder (DVR). The flexibility to record movies for later viewing means you can potentially cancel your expensive movie package or video streaming service, saving $15-$35 a month.

    Save for the Future
    There are thrift stores, garage sales and even internet communities of all types dedicated to the idea of re-use and sharing of durable goods. It's about giving away perfectly good things like coffee grinders, mp3 players, refrigerators, computers, furniture and the like — and keeping them out of landfills.
  • Save Time
    Plan the night before to save precious time in the mornings: get your clothes ready, shower, pack your work or school bag, pack your lunch and snacks and finally, make sure your car has gas.

    Save Money
    Stop smoking. No, it's certainly not easy to quit, but if you smoke a pack and a half every day, that amounts to nearly $3,000 a year you can realize in savings if you quit.

    Save for the Future
    Showers instead of baths (and shorter showers!), lowering the hot water heater thermostat, low-flow shower heads and not running the faucet while you shave or brush your teeth will not only preserve precious resources — it will save you money every month.
  • Save Time
    Get organized. Giving items their own “home” will keep your home in order, reducing clutter and not causing you to waste time searching for things.

    Save Money
    Check out books, magazines and DVDs from the library instead of purchasing them. You’ll save money and storage space.

    Save for the Future
    If you use coupons or savings club cards at the grocery store, take the amount you saved shown on the receipt and put it into savings.
  • Save Time
    Bulk cooking saves time (and money). By planning, shopping and preparing several meals at once, you economize on several levels at once, creating healthier meals, taking advantage of bulk buys or sales, cleaning up once and freezing extra portions for a meal the following week.

    Save Money
    Need a basic household item? Check out local yard sales instead of buying new.

    Save for the Future
    Give yourself a gift: instead of purchasing expensive gifts during the holidays or for birthdays, consider saving for the future by contributing to your retirement fund or your children's college fund.
  • Save Time
    After a big purchase, keep the product’s receipt, instruction book and warranty information, if any, in a file that can be easily located if the item gives you any trouble.

    Save Money
    To save money when buying a car, be sure to get approval for an auto loan before hitting the dealer lot or checking out the sale ads. By getting a loan with a reputable source such as Regions, you’ll know how much money you can work with and you may get a better deal than financing through the dealership.

    Save for the Future
    Add up a month’s worth of “little luxuries” like gourmet coffee, cocktails or movies. See if you could cut that amount in half and put it into savings.
