Take a good look at your expenses, are you paying for services you can do yourself? Do you really need to dry clean everything or could you iron those shirts? Rent a rug-doctor and shampoo your own rugs.

Be careful to hire a professional for the things you really should, but don’t be afraid to learn something new. Learn how to fix things yourself. If you’re really not handy, try bartering with a friend.
