Here are a few easy ideas to save a few pennies.

Really good ideas here!
One more about coupons is that there are stores that allow you to download particular coupons to that particular stores 'club card' and that saves using any ink at all :-) I learned about that because Safeway does it :-)
I save pennies in a variety of ways, across the board. I (of course) turn off the tap when brushing my teeth, and don't wait for the water temperature to be "just right" for handwashing, etc. I'm notorious for going around unplugging those "energy vampires" like the coffee pot, toaster and microwave when they're not in use.
Since I use screen-reading software for the visually impaired, I only occasionally turn on my computer monitor for the convenience of a sighted assistant. Since I only occasionally need to print or shred papers, those stay turned off. I even recently relocated my shredder to a new location. Its surge suppressor stays turned off until it's needed.
As for "saving a few pennies," I literally do that, lol! I periodically sort through the loose change hubby leaves lying around and all pennies go into my owl bank. Those get wrapped and cashed in for paper money or spent, depending how tight finances are at the time.
