The price of everything keeps going up.  The lottery keeps adding more games.  What is your best money saving tip that gives you the extra cash to spend on lottery tickets?

I've found, most of those ads on TV for tooth paste and shaving cream, you only need about half what they show people using.

    Not just for tickets, but savings as well.

     

    Few things:

    - Downgrade from rockstar life to low key lifestyle.

    - Optimize car to use less gas, thus save money on gas.

    - Pump gas early morning or late night for more gas with same prize.

    - Use energy saving light bulbs.

    - Cook instead of eating out.

    - Drink water instead of soda/beer/other drinks.

    - Watch movie online for free instead of going out to the movie (when i have time).

    - Give plasma for extra cash weekly

    - Use coupons when shopping online & in stores

    Saves quite a bit.

      Turn all the lights off when you leave your house..

      Recycle your beer and  pop cans or bottles.

      Buy groceries instead of eating out all the time.

      Use precise measurement for every use.

      Read your favorite book that bring inspiration to you and your family .

      Laughter is good medicine ..smile smile smile, and stop frowing that brings wrinkles.,

      Execise

      Last, play the lottrey only when you can afford it. ( choose a day you normaly hit and play that particular day and skip the rest )

        I put aside $10 a week for my gambling fund. Any money I have in my pockets when I get my next check goes into my gambling fund.

        Because I spend a lot of time gambling on paper, I have managed to get my gambling fund up to $1,000 at times.

        When it gets that high I am usually faced with the decision of do I pay a recurring bill or do I use it to gamble with?

        Ahhhh decisions, decisions.

        Either way I use the money guilt free.

        As of right now the gambling fund stands at a mere $585

            I've got a friend who has a CostCo Card...Gas their is usually much cheaper there as well as buying groceries in bulk.    Started riding my bike again...for short trips I ride my bike.to save gas.     Most of the time I don't have  that much "extra" cash.   But I'm always trying to find ways to save and get the most out of my money.

              Hans,

              Many of your posts where you are telling people how to play, and what numbers to play, call for playing a lot more than that for just one drawing.

              This is quite revelaing.

              Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

              Lep

              There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
