The holidays are slowly approaching us and that means many of you will be dishing out money for presents.  When it became all about the presents I have no idea but with the way the economy is finding that money isn’t going to be easy. has a few tips to help us find more money for the holidays… or really for anything.  Here is another tip…

Tip #5 Quit Smoking = $347 savings over next few months

The cost of smoking is not getting any cheaper with an average pack costing between $4-6. If you smoke four packs a week, you’ll pay over $1000 a year. Since quitting smoking is easier said than done, it may be worth it use some of those savings on nicotine patches or gum to help you quit.

The caveat of this strategy is that you’ve got to want to quit smoking in order for this to work. While you can save some money doing this, you’re not going to be able to use that as motivation alone. You’ll need to weigh the other benefits of quitting as well and determine the reason why it’s time for you to quite now.

I don’t smoke nor does my husband so this doesn’t affect us but it’s crazy how much it does cost to smoke.  You really can save a lot of money, not to mention be healthier if you quit.  I  smoked years ago and these prices guarantee that I won’t start again!

Tip # 1 would save me $250, Tip #2 would save me $24, Tip #3 would save me $45.00, Tip #4 would save me $320 for a total of  $639.  Tip #5 I don’t spend money on already.
