According to Career Builder 78% of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck,, that's the bad news, the good news is that there are some simply ways to save money.

Here are just a few:

  • Newspaper subscriptions - You can get news for free today from a variety of online sources.  A monthly newspaper subscription probably isn't necessary.
  • Satellite radio - do you need 100 channels in your car and online.  Terrestrial radio (radio stations) are still free, or there are Pandora or Spotify that are markedly cheaper than satellite.
  • Cable TV - you might be able to save some money by using streaming services instead, but there are now ways to cut cable altogether for the most savings.
  • Premium Gas - unless your car specifically requires it, you don't need it and it can save you up to 40 cents a gallon.

There are also warehouse club memberships, cigarettes and bank fees.  If you want to see all your options check out easy seniors life.com
