Finally, a stimulus package that makes everyone happy.

We all know the economy is terrible and that money is tight. And most can agree that not having money really, really sucks. I'm here to show you, however, that saving money doesn't have to be all that bad. In fact, it can actually be a good thing. Just combine getting cheap with getting off, and you've got a recipe for success.

Shower with a friend (or lover) – I've recently discovered the joys of showering with a significant other. Not only do you lower your water bill by cutting shower time in half, you can also save money by going halvesies on soap and shampoo. Nothing better than smelling like Old Spice body wash while you're boyfriend's hair smells like your coconut conditioner. Plus, you get to save money just by being naked. A win-win, if you ask me.

Turn out the lights – Spend more time with the lights off. You can slash your electricity bill while boosting your sex life. Light some cheap-o Dollar Tree candles for mood lighting and you're in business.

Wear your boyfriend's clothes – Or just spend most of the weekend naked in bed. If you spend one day a week not wearing your clothes, you can save a lot of money. Think about it – one outfit can cost anywhere from $50 (if you're SUPER cheap like me) to $300+ dollars. That could add up to savings to over $1,000 per month!
