1. Learn How To Cook
Say what?! How can. Well, to be truthful, I'm really lousy at cooking too, but probably that's because I do not put enough effort in to start cooking. There are so many recipes online, and each dish can be produced just by following the steps by steps. Hey, your partner may love you even more after you cook him/her that delicious home-cooked steak. Yum. By dining at home, less $$ goes into having a meal outside. You can't imagine how much we spend on food dining out.
2. Shop Online - Find Discount Websites
Shopping online has always been cheaper than buying the same items at the shopping malls. But how do you save even more? Stay home, switch on your laptop and head online! Go for those that give discounts on top of the already low price. Get coupons with high discounts at at various discount websites on the interweb
3. Public Transport Is Your Friend
Drive to the nearest LRT instead of all the way to your work place. Instead of driving out during lunch time, let the car rest in your designated car parks and sit the public transport instead. UBER and Grabcar has proven to be a really affordable transport alternative especially when taking short trips. Heck, even for those long journeys, its rates are pretty reasonable as well.
4. Cut That Gym Membership
I'm sure we all have that gym membership which forces us to fork out money month after month, year after year. Do we fully utilize it? Personally for me, I find it way cheaper to exercise for free. yes you heard that right, why pay when you can keep fit by just heading to the nearest park to walk or run. Cardio workouts have never been easier, even running around outside your house can help you break that sweat. Gym memberships aren't cheap, I could do more with that $$.

5. Start Driving UBER
Have you thought about this? Part time jobs used to be about being behind a counter, in front of the PC, or basically working under someone else. Be your own boss when you drive UBER, earn whenever you want, go online, drive when you're free and get paid for it. Why not right? You can always register to be an UBER driver at the link here.
