    Hey everyone,
    It's obvious by my signature that my Work at Home job is helping small business save on their shipping expenses, but that's not what this thread is about. :D
    I'm wondering what everyone else does to cut down on their expenses in general?
    I know working at home is a very hard thing to do to make a living, so I figured everyone on here must have some good ideas on how to cut down on their expenses.
    I assume it matters on what type of job you have, like selling stuff on eBay would be way different then selling digital/audio material on Amazon. But, I figured this type of advice can help everyone out on the forum.
    Either way I'm curious and all ears :)
  2. learn to do it all by yourself and never have to pay anyone to do it for you....

    draw a scale of preferences from the most needed things t the least needed things of life and focus on the most needed while putting others on hold till maybe you have enough cash to offset them all.

    Yes, I can agree with you but at the same time, you can't be a professional in all spheres of life, so sometimes It's just better to ask someone for some help.

    I mostly just restrain myself from impulse buying and only buy what's on my list.

    Eat at home a lot more often rather going out. Only buy things that you actually need not want. Get a control over your credit card spending. Understand the differences between liabilities and assets. And try to have less liabilities and more assets. Hopefully this helped you.

    Find valid reasons why you want it, and work on that

    Coupons! They are everywhere and you can even buy small to large batches via Ebay.

    Just a few coupons when I do my weekly or even bi-weekly grocery shopping can save $2-$7 for example ...and though not a lot it's the little things that do add up. Kinda like taking online survey's and after you have been at it a while you know which sites you dig and the ones you don't. Do spreadsheets too. Google Docs makes that quite easy or use the sticky notes via your laptop, etc.
