By driving an old '87 Sprint, I save over $200 a month in Gas driving to and from work.

I bought my first car, a 1995 mitsutishi eclipse gs convertible from a model I met on a plain back from Israel (I still see her in commercials all the time, were friends for a bit, haha) for $1500. It had 45k miles. It needed a new winshield (cost $250), a couple of rotor mounts (not sure thats what they are called, but they were like $500 I think), and to fix the convertible top ($200) so the total cost was $2450. At the time, that clean an eclipse ran like $7000 on bluebook. It ended up getting totalled parked a long while later and insurance cut us a check for $3650!

I waited about ten years after the Angel came out before buying myself one. I saved about $1,400. Does that count?

I tried to buy a pair of cleats that were reduced from $45 to $19, when the clerk scanned them they came up 99 cents.

Uh, going with Doc's idea on saving with Angels. Picked up a Dark LCD for $125 recently. Not a terrible good deal, but good enough that the teen that drooled over them in magazines is getting his jollies. Also, I recently picked up a pair of cleats for paintball. Regularly $40, snagged them for $3 on clearance at Walmart.

Other stuff:
$1 for an all metal weed puller from Walmart clearance. Regularly priced $16

Passed on:
Christmas tree from Walmart on Christmas Eve. $1, regularly priced $30. I tried to convince the wife that, yes, we did indeed need 2 trees but she wasn't buying it.

Wow, just read that over and apparently I'm Sam Walton's best friend this year.

Just bought a 46 inch led Samsung tv that was listed for 1245 at best buy. I paid 600 for it

They were all out so I tried to finagle the display model. Dude wasn't having it. I kept saying but come on bro why display a tv you don't even have. You don't need this thing bro just knock another 100 off and ill take it. Nope apparently they arnt allowed to sell those. Of well. So they are sending me one direct from the warehouse

I saved the most from being born and raised in a semi-socialist country.
Then I threw that out the window and bought a $4800 Matrix and a $8000 bike. oops.

I saved $150 switching to Geico. Than I was able to save around $600 by dropping Geico and selling my Blazer.
