As for transportation the most effective way to save money when buying a car consist of several steps.

But the most important thing is finding the best quotes, and you can compare quotes using online search engines like Google or Yahoo.
The third step is banking and credit options and they are many, from regular savings accounts to mutual funds and credit card responsibility. Well you can deposit an amount of money in a savings account and wait for the interest rate to go up and you can do all sorts of other things, but the most important thing is responsible debt keeping. We are all credit card happy in this day of age, but not all of us are credit card responsible. What you need to do in order to avoid your interest piling up is paying your rate at least a week before the statement due date. Or at least pay as much as you can each month in order to lower the interest rate for the bank.
As for utilities and housing you need to keep in mind like with everything else that it is very important to understand what you are paying for. For example if you want your house redecorated you first want to find the appropriate firm to do the redecorating and once you do you want to make sure they do exactly what you need before paying. Never pay up front, as that may leave you with empty pockets and a lousy work that you paid for.
