    4. Monitor your spending online-  this could also pertain to shopping in general.  Set boundaries and budgets for yourself.
    5. Side work-  if you have the time, look into picking up a part time job.
    6. Refinancing- as mentioned above you can lower payments on things like your car, insurance etc by refinancing.
    7. Keep track of how you are saving.  Just because you have a plan doesn’t mean it will always come into fruition.  Make sure to stay on track and follow up on what you are doing daily or weekly.
