    We switched from shopping at a local supermarket to shopping at national chains (e.g. Target, CVS, Walgreen, etc.) I am a big supporter of the “Buy Local” movement, but man, those coupon and reward savings really add up!

    My last switch to save a buck was my internet provider. I transferred to the new provider because they offered the first 6 months of unlimited data absolutely free with a very reasonable (and cheaper) monthly rate thereafter.

    While I’d love a shredder for my documents, I don’t pay for shredding so Savings Analyzer got very confused by my input =)

    The last switch I made to save money was cancel our parking lease. It was up anyway, and that will save the BF and I $100 ($50 each). I’ll also be canceling my gym membership in December, when it’s up, so I’ll save another $40!

    I added a telephone to my internet and cable bill and saved $30 a month. Not sure how that worked out for Comcast, but now I have a home phone for free and $30 extra in my pocket :) Plus they upgraded my modem/router so I was able to sell my old router.

    According to the analyzer I could save about 71%, sweet :) The last switch we’ve made has been with cell phone providers – we moved over to Sprint for a competitive rate and better service.

    98% Savings, the last thing i did to save money was DISCOUNT DOUBLE CHECKED budget and realized that if i put monthly expenses on my credit card and paid them off monthly, i get 1% cash back. Which i put towards the principal of the house.

    The last financial switch I made was asking for an adjustment in my work hours, so that my husband and I could commute to work together. We save gas money ($50 to $100 a week) and wear and tear on one vehicle. We also get to have a few minutes to chat before we start our day.

    The last switch I did was switching from a Cable TV+Internet package to Cable internet+ netflix. I watch the new shows on the stations websites and the old ones on Netflix. I went from $140 a month to $70 a month for essentially the same service, which is now 100% on demand as opposed to prescribed times. Love it!

    I am about to switch to a pre-paid phone to get out of my current $56/month plan with T-Mobile. Wish me luck! The last thing I did to save some dough was to persistantly (but politely) call a doctor’s office to get them to lower the bill. They had charged me for all kind of “legit” expenses and fees

    The last switch that we made was from Farmer’s Insurance to Country Financial (all of our policies).

    Amazingly, we saved nearly $2,000 a year on our rental property, about $500 each on both autos, and on our primary homeowners policy, we saved about $300, netting out to a cool $3300. On TOP of that, we received all of the extra money we had paid in to our policies in the form of 4 separate checks! Once we paid the new premiums, we still had over $2000 left!

    The one thing I will say is to CHECK YOUR INSURANCE POLICIES! Our policies were great and very budget-friendly when we bought them 6 years ago, but over time, they started to nickel and dime the increases (I presume so consumers don’t notice — just like we didn’t notice).

    Regardless – best financial move I’ve made in a LONG time.

    The last switch I made was vanpooling instead of driving to work. My commuting costs went down from around $325 to about $140, a $185/month savings. Woohoo! I now also get to nap for an extra 2 hours a day :). Can’t put a price on that.

    The most recent switch I made to save money was on my car insurance. The old company wanted to increase my monthly payment by $28 a month from one 6 month period to the next. Excuse me, but hasn’t the value gone DOWN as I’ve driven the car, and thus insuring it should be cheaper?? So I got 3 or 4 quotes that were all way cheaper for the same coverage and went with the cheapest!

    I switched from dry cleaning some of my delicate clothing items to washing them by hand, and using a steamer at home. The cost of the handheld steamer would only have gotten me a month or two of dry cleaning, and I’ve saved at least triple that since making the switch. I wear a suit every day (and can’t wear the same thing more than once a week, even though I wish I could), so these savings have stacked up fast!

    I switched online bank accounts! Which well…doesn’t save money but helps me make a tiny bit more on interest. If this on doesn’t count then, I switched the way I shop…from personal shopping to grocery shopping. Trying to only buy things on sale, buying quality items over items that will fail in a few months, and switching to store brand.

    Our last switch to save money was buying a wood stove for the Winter. Heating Oil cost us over $3000 last year, we bought a used wood stove, 6 cords of wood and it cost us about $1500. We are also buying 6 cords of green wood to season for next year for half the price of seasoned wood, so we will save even more on heat for next Winter.

    The last switch I made was to cut out netflix and less eating out. I do need to do more cutbacks.

    The last switch I did to save money is my cell bill. I switched to tracfone.

    The last switch we did to save money was switch from AT&T phone service to Comcast as we already had them for cable and internet so we got the triple play package.

    We’ve saved about $100 a month by switching electric companies! We also switched from satellite to Hulu and Netflix…another $75 per mo :)

    I got rid of cable and the land-line, as I found it redundant having a cell phone as well.

    I recently ‘switched’ my cable service by calling and telling them I wanted a cheaper bill. They did it without removing any of my services. Win!

    Last thing we did to MAJORLY save money was consolidate homeowner’s and auto insurance!

    77% savings – hmm! (I ran it for the office in which I work part-time, thankfully our main document storage is virtual, except for what fits in one folder in my filing bin!)

    What an amazing way to store and so easy to put together. The Banker box storage boxes saved me so much space . Now the others in the home have more space for more stuff,,
