Many people make new year’s resolutions to be better with their spending habits. Each purchase is a choice, and for many, they see they need to be more disciplined. But self-discipline isn’t easy. Compounding the issue of spending is Austin’s affordability. As much as local politicians talk about affordability, you’d think it’d be cheap to live in Austin. But it isn’t, so making your budget stretch can be difficult. Still, it is possible.

To help you make it happen, here are 10 ways Austinites live on the cheap and save money. Perhaps you’ve tried some, but even for the thriftiest penny pincher there’s always another way to save.

10.) Go to free events
