5 Easy Ways To Save Money ($300 EVERY MONTH!)

– Hi, I’m the YouTube
Deal Guy Matt Granat, welcome to your one stop shop for savings. Whether you know me from your
local TV station or USA Today, I usually find huge deals
right here every day. Today, there’s not really a deal rather than several different ways to cut your monthly costs. If you are not yet subscribed, click that subscribe button
you see on your screen. You’ll be signed up for
huge savings and good to go. First, and most importantly,
let’s start with multimedia. Sever your ties with your
cable or satellite provider. You’ll easily save $80 to $140 per month, and there are great options. Live TV on your terms is a reality for $20 per month with
a service like Sling TV. Amazon Prime video, $10 per month, in addition to all sorts
of music streaming options, and Hulu Plus, under $8. Great ways to entertain
yourself on a dime. Now, for a few thermostat tweaks, you can lower your monthly
costs significantly. Let’s start with your hot water heater. It’s likely turned up to a point that’s complete overkill for your home. Lowering it slightly can save you as much as $40 a month, and lowering your thermostat a degree can cut costs by as much as $40 per month. Additionally, a programmable thermostat can save you another
$10, and cut the takeout. While I rarely recommend
meal subscription services as a way to save, if you simply have no
time to grocery shop, or you’re not a great cook, you can replace your restaurant meals with a service like Blue
Apron or Hello Fresh for about $9 per portion per month. You can save a whooping $150 by avoiding those restaurants. Now, if you do cook, that’s better, start buying generic, and join a wholesale warehouse
club like Sam’s Club, Costco, or BJs. You can easily save $90
more per month on food. Now is a great time to refinance your home at a lower rate, or if you have debt, take advantage of the balance transfers that always pop up at this time of year with 0% APR that can run you 18 months in many cases. That could cut your costs an additional $70 per month or more. Show your bank who’s boss, and stop paying ridiculous
monthly bank fees. Findabetterbank.com will
help you cut your fees to the tune of $20 per month. And make the promise right now to never buy anything that’s not on sale. I can help with that. – Matt, what are these? – [Matt] No comment. – Click the subscribe button and the thumbs-up button at

  40. Joe Scot Schroeder says:

    Maestro, THANK YOU once again for helping us keep a little more money in our wallets! 🙂
    Cable is not welcome at our table.
    Hot water may holler but the thermostats got his collar.
    Take out leads to livin' hand to mouth.
    Balance transfers may be the the answer.
    and lastly,
    No fees, release the squeeze, and help our wallets, please!

    Keep it real, keep it good, and keep spreading the love! 🙂

  41. Frito Hobbit says:

  42. sea jay says:

    Great looking out Matt thanks for the money saving tips !!

  43. bagnascofamily says:

    EXCELLENT Info. Matt !! As we shared before, the $20-$40 prepaid monthly cell plans (that use AT&T/GSM or Verizon/CDMA) is the 6th iterm Team Bagnasco would add to the list of GREAT monthly Savings, besides revisiting (shopping around) all Insurance Policies, every 12 months, or so (as they have no incentive to discount already existing customers, beyond a good driving record and multi-coverage). YOU 'DA BEST! Thank you.

  44. MISSY gold says:

    I love the idea of ditching cable. The only rub is the whole reason I have it is for sports. Is there a way that I can get live sporting events with out cable? I have tried antennas but can't get the net works and even if I could that still does not get me ESPN. Any ideas?

    More great advice. I feel empowered. Thanks!

  61. Jesse Hartley says:


    I do a lot of these already. Another great way to save $$$ is to change out light blubs to LED they produce less heat and use less energy. Black Out thermal curtians work great too keeping the house cool during summer and warm during winter; they also block out some noise too.

  62. Todd Zieja says:

    Great Job!!! All good ideas!!

    Thanks for the saving tips!

  66. ClosetGearhead says:

    Can you, at some point, please discuss digital recording options for those who have chosen to cut the cable? Searching for "DVR" on Amazon returns results that range from $39-$300+. Surely these don't all do the same thing. Thanks Matt. You're the savingest saver on the air!

  67. Lisa Connor says:

    Love money saving tips!

  68. Laura Cannioto says:

    Thank you for all these great tips!!

  69. Amanda Rettig says:

    Those are all great ideas! definitely going to do the water heater and thermostat. Don't know if I can talk the fam into changing the cable.😊

  70. Chris S says:

    Great tips, Matt. I earn a percentage back at BJ's when I use their credit card. The cash back easily covers the cost of the membership. I did purchase a FoodSaver (on sale of course) to vacuum pack my wholesale club purchases. No sense in buying in bulk if I'm tossing some of it away. Keep a look out for deals on the vac-bags. They're pricey, but reusable.

  99. Elisabeth Montoya says:

    Thanks for some of your great ideas. Refinancing is a BAD idea! This move usually only helps the banks and the sales person who gets commission on selling you a new loan, unless you are educated and tell the bank you don’t want your new loan to start the 30 years over again. If they extend your 30 year mortgage another 30 years, that’s NOT good for you. If people don’t change their habits, and they just transfer all their credit card debt into the refinance, they just created an even greater nightmare for themselves when they charge up their credit cards again. MOST people are not disciplined and are uneducated about refinancing.
