Looking for some quick and easy ways to save cash? Today we’re kicking off a new series in which we’ll bring you a money-saving tip each and every Monday. Whether you want to cut dry cleaning costs or save on your electric bill, our weekly tips will help you become the master of your money. Read on and get saving!

Today’s Tip: Keep your cell phone bill low by avoiding extra fees and charges (i.e., don’t dial 411 for information, which can charge up to a$1.99 for each curious call; text Google instead). Sign up for a family plan with your spouse or family members you’re always yakking with, and take a few minutes to scan your monthly bill. Do you really use all of those “anytime minutes” you pay for? Do you really need a separate cash-guzzling ring-ton for every person in your contact list?

How do you and your partner save on your monthly bills? Share your suggestions with us!
