Use the sharing economy
You could save money by learning to take advantage of today’s sharing economy. For example, most public libraries aren’t just for books anymore. They also lend music CDs, audiobooks and even DVDs of popular TV series and films. If you don't need a car everyday why not join a car sharing program like Zipcar. Its annual fee is $70 plus $8 for each hour you use the car. What this means is if you made 10 three-hour trips a month that would come to $2950 a year, which is less than half the $6100 a year that AAA says it costs the average driver to own an automobile.
Finally, if you have rooms you don't use every day you could share your seldom-used spaces – such as a laundry room – with other people. And, of course, if you have a bedroom you're not using you could rent it out and earn some nice extra revenue.
