If you missed any of her tips from the show, see our list for all the information:
Practical Moneysaving Tips 1. Faucet Aerator
Lynette says buying a faucet aerator, which usually costs around $2, helps control water pressure in your household and could save you up to $550 in five years. Just snap this device on your kitchen sink and you'll be saving in no time!

To help control water costs in your bathroom, Lynette suggests buying a toilet flapper. This device seals water in your toilet basin and releases when you flush. Because it's made of plastic, Lynette urges you to replace the flapper once a year. She estimates using one will save you around $110 a year.3. MyEnergy.com
Go to MyEnergy.com to better understand energy use in your home. Lynette says the site will do a personal audit of your consumption - testing water, electricity, and will even show you how your energy consumption compares to your neighbor's. It's a great resource for learning how to cut your energy costs!4. Get Locavore
Get Locavore is an app that helps you pinpoint great places for local, fresh, healthy and cheap food. No need to go dumpster diving!

Grocery iQ is another app Lynette recommends to lower the cost of your groceries. You can scan grocery items in your home, create a list and then let the app show you where to get coupons to save more money on the items you already use.
