apps save money

We all want to save money, but we also want to save time. At Living on the Cheap, we don’t recommend that you count squares of toilet paper or devote 20 hours a week to searching for coupons. Instead, we recognize that time is money, and we offer you tips for saving money on shopping, dining, travel, cooking and other areas of your life that don’t require you to waste your valuable time.

We’ve joined with Cricket Wireless to participate in a Q&A series to help you do MORE of what you love in 2014 while spending less and saving time: Ask the Cricket Experts!

You can check here every Monday for a new topic and ask questions on Facebook or on Twitter using the hashtag #CricketTips. Each Friday, Cricket will share the answers to the most popular fan questions on the Half is More hub.

This week’s topic is saving more at the store, online and at home. Teresa Mears of Living on the Cheap and Miami on the Cheap will answer your questions as a Cricket Expert.

Have you ever wondered whether those pricy cleaning products are really necessary? Or the most efficient way to organize coupons? Are there things you could do at home that would really slice your food budget while feeding your family well? Where can you find restaurant coupons and online promo codes? Ask your questions about how to save more money in less time. If we don’t know the answer, we’ll use our professional reporting skills to find out.

You can ask your questions at the bottom of this post, at Cricket’s Facebook page or on Twitter tagging @cricknetnation and @cheaplives using the hashtag #CricketTips. Deadline to submit questions is midnight Wednesday, March 5.
