Definitely fell victim to the "hunger rule" today. Went to the grocery store and suddenly everything looked good. One thing I have come to find out is that just because it says, "Buy One, Get One" doesn't mean it is always a good deal!

 @DavidThomasTao Thanks for the study. Wouldn't you associate the soreness of one's muscles as part of the recovery process?

When I interned with the Philadelphia Union, the trainers would incorporate hot/cold contrast baths on recovery days. Those things were amazing!

Habits and Goals are crucial. I think most people can save a nice amount of money by just doing the little things. Plan out your expenses each month and then see how much is left over. Then see where you spend your money throughout the month and find the things you could do without or bought on impulse. That brings me to another point....impulse. Buying on impulse can be a killer on savings, so I always wait a day or two to buy certain things.

I think you will begin to see a lot of people working from home. I saw in a study how much people save by working from home. If someone is currently using 40 gallons a week, then that is a total of $200/week ($5/gallon) and $800/month. Now over a year that is pretty significant. Working remotely could be a huge option with companies.

Staying hydrated is very important. I do some pretty crazy hydration techniques when exercising/playing sports.

I try and stay hydrated while working. Whenever my water bottle becomes low, I quickly fill it back up and drink away! I recently have been trying to eat more things are known for having more water in them.

 @EmilyMilam_Greatist  @Mary C. Weaver, CSCS I definitely tried to follow those safety precautions. Another good tip would be to know your running route so there are no surprises.

I used to run in the dark all the time during summer college soccer training. It was usually the only time that worked around my scheduled, and it turned into a time to get fit and relax! Big fan of night running, if done safely!

I am with you on eating out! It just fits my schedule better. Restaurant.com is great, and many times they offer $2 certificates. I didn't know the whole "Chili's/FourSquare" thing. Do you get that every time you check in?

Local roads can be a place. However, local road could also mean less direct routes (more gas).

It seems like almost everything has been accomplished within the Internet. So hobbies can be a great place to start, because the person has some area to have success. The things that I believe truly separate someone is 1. passion and 2. creativity. There might be tons of people who enjoy coaching. However, will one's passion and creativity allow them to become the best business in coaching?

I have a CPA do mine. The time it takes is well worth the money I pay him. However, I always love hearing of ways I truly could save money on certain tasks. I guess I am just too lazy. :)

POint #1 and #3 are great to me. #1 is something that people usually don't get. They think..."I need to save and can't enjoy life because I am saving." I believe that motto leads to a lot of strife in the saving process. #3 is always great. Find some type of niche (that is relatively low) and look to monetize.

Step #25 is right down my alley. One way that you can save money on car insurance is by taking the time to compare companies. Everyone wants your business, so you should be able to get some of the better prices.

Great option for some extra pay. Another thing that people can do is writing. There are some great websites out there that are looking for experienced writers. Textbroker.com is one of many. The internet is just a great place overall to look for that extra income (if done correctly).

Interview skills and experience are definitely big factors. One of the biggest factors for me was who I knew. That landed me my job out of college. I would suggest going to anything and everything to meet people within the career path you are pursuing. All it takes is one person to like you, and BAM.....you are moving up the ladder.
