You’ve just looked over your budget and it looks like you’re a couple of hundred dollars if not thousands of dollars short of your goal. Whether you’re saving for retirement, a new car, or that vacation you’ve been promising yourself for years, it’s time to double your efforts.

If, for whatever reason, you can’t pick up a side gig or can’t put aside more money any more than you already are, here are 15 ways to save $100 and even $1,000 with minimal effort!
