Here's a few ways to save some bucks and make your piggy bank smile.

1. Cut your cell phone plan
Have you looked at your cell phone history lately? If you’re using less than your allotted minutes, text, or data, switch to a lower plan. Comb through your history and bills, then ditch anything you’re not using.
2. Ditch the landline
Speaking of ditching things, it may be time to cut the landline. If you primarily use your cell phone, why keep two services that do the same thing? Cutting your landline service can save $25 to $30 a month – around $300 a year.
3. Take a staycation
Staycations are all the rage lately for one reason: They’re a lot cheaper than regular vacations. If you’re trying to stash away an extra grand this year, consider staying home and living like a tourist in your own city for a few days.
4. Raise your deductibles
Raising your insurance deductibles will lower your monthly payment. For example, raise your car and homeowners insurance deductibles from $200 to $1,000 and you could save hundreds in premiums. Just make sure you don’t raise the deductible higher than you can afford if you need to file a claim.
5. Drop the gym membership
You really don’t need the fancy equipment, just a good pair of running shoes.
They look great....what did you think of their performance?
You might think you're looking at a live shot of the stadium that Usain Bolt just broke an Olympic record only this stadium is made of Legos.
Opening ceremoies.....The ratings were huge but was it worth the hype and the 42 million it cost. Some people loved it...others....not so much. Your thoughts?
What medal would you give the new Olympic uniforms: Gold, Silver or Bronze?
For USA Olympians It’s Berets and Blazers Again
