Frugal ways to save at least $100 a month
Bundle or drop cable and Internet
McCoy suggests saving money by bundling cable and Internet services. Palmquist agrees, and recently switched to an "economy package" for her TV service.
However, Palmquist says it's important to look before you leap into bundling.
"Sometimes it's more expensive and they can lock you into a two-year contract, so check out everything first," she says.
If you're really gung-ho about saving, simply drop cable altogether. Perhaps you can watch your favorite TV shows for free on an Internet site such as Hulu.com.
Or, maybe it's time to simply give up those expensive TV habits and think about the priorities that really matter to you.
"My main advice is to think about wants and needs," Palmquist says. "Many of us think something's a necessity when really it's just a want."
