Hi, thanks for your roundup for personal finance.

For me, the money saving tip is to look for grocery coupons before you go to any grocery store such like price chopper or CVS. PriceChopper always gives you a lot of coupons after your check out. I will put all these kinds of coupons into my coupon book by the date time order. That save me large amount of money.

Another tip is to shop online. Amazon will offer some grocery coupons every month. And sometimes you can save up to 50% off for drink or sneaks. I love amazon, so I build a coupon site for it.

I also sign up for all deals or coupon sites mail list to get their promotion coupons online.

Anyway, keep in mind that you should try to look for coupons before you buy anything.

I've just recently stopped soda. It wasn't as hard as I thought. I gave up caffeine in October after a few hard tries and finally successful and just had to work on the non-caff soda and finally did it!

Good Luck to Everyone!

That article that includes the list of twitter experts is an excellent and easy way to get personal finance advice. Too bad I normally drink soda while browsing twitter.
