I like to create a menu for the week and develop a shopping list from it. I then take my shopping list and make one weekly trip to the grocery store. If it isn't on the list I don't buy it. This cuts down on impulse purchases which can really add up.

I quite enjoyed the "Three Times in Life When It's Ok NOT to Save Money" article. Though I have to disagree with the college part. Unless you're paying your own tuition and NOT taking student loans, you should be trying to put away $500 a month. I did that during college so that as soon as I graduated, I had float money to last me until I found a job, which I did within three months of graduating. The money was them promptly put into a savings account where it has been accruing interest for the last ten years!
