Here are some interesting tips to help you keep your resolution to save money.

For many of us, New Year's resolutions may include ways to save money. Here are some interesting tips from the Smarter Living e-newsletter from the New York Times:

  • Save your $5 bills. Whenever you get them throughout the day or throughout the week, just put them away in a safe place and you'll soon have a small stash saved up as the year goes by.

  • Review all of your automatic subscriptions and see if you're really using them. Consider your video streaming subscriptions, cable and internet services. If you aren't taking full advantage of the monthly service you're paying for, it might be time to downsize or cancel. Even better, if you were able to slash $100's worth of monthly expenses, consider putting $100 a month into an investment account for yourself. Why not pay yourself instead?

  • Commit to reviewing your monthly expenses with your significant other so you're both on the same page. That way, you can work on finding clever ways to save throughout the year together.
