Did you know that if you save your Starbucks cup and you don't throw it away, refills are only 50 cents?

Also, when buying gift cards - if you order them online you can buy them for less than their loaded value. In store face value it is.

Haircuts and color can be very expensive but you can get it all for free if you volunteer to be a hair model for stylists-in-training at trendy salons.

You can also pay a lot less to have students perform the services at beauty schools.

And you can refresh your look for nothing by hosting clothing, shoe and accessory swaps with your most fashionable friends.

Finally, remember the 30 day rule. If you are so compelled to make a big purchase, bring it home and let it sit for a few weeks.

If you still want it, keep it. If you're not so impressed anymore then take it back.
