  1. Stop smoking cigarettes! A carton of cigarettes could cost anywhere from $14-$20.  If you smoke a carton weekly a month, you could save between $56-$80/month! Think about what you could do with an extra $80/month. How much could you save if There are over 4,000 chemicals in cigarette smoke including rat poison.  Consider a smoking cessation program with your insurance company or smoking alternatives {nicotine patches, electronic cigarettes, nicotine gum, nicotine inhaler, nicotine nasal spray, Chantix medication or quit cold turkey}.  Visit and learn more today!2.  Internet!

    4. Gym Membership! Find some of your favorite work out exercises on You Tube! I have found many of them and they have been of high quality. You may also consider walking at your local park with a friend. Nowadays, there are game systems like the Wii game console or Xbox 360 where you can a purchase an exercise game. When you think about it, a $36 fitness game can beat the costs of membership monthly fees the year. For example, if you pay $14.99 a month for gym membership this could cost you near $180.00 for the year. That $36 fitness is looking great right. Also, you can find some exercise DVDs at your local Goodwill store for less than $5.
