If you get a refund from your tax return, consider using that money to add to your savings account. Rather than repaying their debts, most people go shopping with their tax refunds. This just means you will still have debt after the money has been spent.
Try purchasing non-brand name products in place of expensive well known brands. Many brand names are more expensive because of advertising costs. Spend less on store brands. There's seldom any difference when it comes to taste, quality or performance.
