If you carry several credit cards the odds are that at least one of them comes with cash back. In the case of some cards you could get 2X cash back just by using them to buy the groceries you would've purchased anyway.

Have a garden
You can save money just by growing your own vegetables and herbs. Many of them can be grown pretty easily in your backyard. Or if you live in the city you might be able to have a garden on your patio or deck.

Then, in just a few weeks (or months), you'll have your own carrots, peppers, tomatoes, radishes, herbs and the like. This will not only help you save money, you'll be eating fresher, better tasting items.
