Are you trying to save money? Well, according to Yahoo, here are 8 PURCHASES THAT CAN SAVE YOU HUNDREDS or THOUSANDS of DOLLARS:


1. A bike or transit pass. If you live in an area where you can forgo having a vehicle, you can save thousands of dollars a year. Just think, no more car payments or pricey repairs. And that's just the big stuff -- you won't have to pay for car washes or gas either.

2. A TV-streaming device. Thankfully, there are now several options for streaming devices that bring services like Netflix and Hulu to your living room TV. Apple TV, Roku and Amazon Fire are all options to check out. Each requires a one-time initial investment, usually between $50 and $100. According to the research company NPD Group, cable bills might reach $123 a month by next year.

3. An espresso machine. If you're one of those people who won't give up going to the coffee shop because you don't want to switch to make drip coffee at home, you can still save money by buying your own espresso machine. If you buy a $4 latte 250 days of the year, that's $1,000 on its own, and you're not even buying coffee every day of the week!
