Are your natural gas bills unpredictable?  Consider switching to propane.  Your local supplier – for probably less than $100 – can change the orifice on your heater so it can use propane.  You will have a tank in your back yard with a gauge so you know exactly how much is in there.  It is prepaid, put in your tank, so there are no unpleasant surprises waiting in your mailbox when the bill comes in.

An awesome way to save money on college tuition and textbooks: Dual Credit in high school.  Most schools have an arrangement with a local university for some of their more advanced, honors, scholars classes to be able to taken for college credit.  You normally pay a small fee (typically less than $100 per credit hour).  The classes are at your high school, with your high school teacher.  The textbooks are provided for you – no buying or renting required.  Some smaller schools have to go to the college for their finals, but most take them at their own schools.  It is not uncommon for some students to have a semester’s worth (maybe closer to 2 semesters if they work really hard at it and the school offers the classes) of credits.  The vast majority of colleges will still consider the student as a freshman and not as a transfer student.  This is highly relevant for scholarship money and even admission for some schools.  The key is the credits were not earned after high school graduation.  Make sure to carefully research your ultimate college for their policy.

Don’t forget to take those standardized tests more than once (unless you get a perfect score the first time).  Take the PSAT to prepare for the SAT.  Both the SAT and ACT test how you take their test, not necessarily knowledge alone.  Master the test needed for your college choice.  The extra scholarship money will be worth it.
