How can I save money fast? This is one important question everyone on tight budget has always on mind.

My husbands travels a lot for his business but for anyone else getting around, taking the no-frills approach is the only way to get around if you’re someone who works to a tight budget. Tigerair has cheap domestic flights and Jetstar has their Friday Frenzy deal where you can get a really cheap flight for less than $20. When not flying, my husband still needs to use his car a lot. Everyone wants ideas on how to be able to still get around by car without spending a fortune on petrol. How can I save money fast when travelling by car? By remembering that Tuesdays and Wednesdays are the cheapest days to top up on fuel. I always avoid buying petrol over the weekends.
