Cut down on coffee drinks. If you put into savings $4/day you would have spent on a latte at Starbucks, the money would grow in 30 years at 5% interest to $100,000.If you do want something to drink, buy a bottle of juice: It's better for you and cheaper.
Pack lunch. Spending $5~$10/day going out to lunch will quickly add up.
Whenever you buy anything ask yourself 3 times "do I really need this?" Chances are your quality of life would be better without it.
Power of compounding interest. Basically, saving when you are young will put time on your side. When you are ready to retire in 20~30 years, your money will be earning serious interest.
Spend money on people, not things.
Live just beneath your means. You don't have to be live like a pauper to save money, just go one step below what you could get. Instead of a BMW, buy a Acura. Instead of a two week vacation, go for 10 day vacation. Save the rest!"

This is what I love about California: They make it sound like it's fun. Oh, Furlough Friday.
Hey, listen to this -- according to 'The Wall Street Journal,' the city of Las Vegas wants to use $2 million worth of the economic stimulus package for neon signs. I just hope it doesn't make the city look tacky.
