TODAY is launching a new weekly series – Frugal Fridays – to help you with smart ways to spend and save your hard-earned dollars.

Every Friday, Jean Chatzky will discuss these important pocketbook issues on TODAY. But we need your participation. We will reach out to you and feature your ideas on air, online on Facebook and on Twitter ( #frugalfridays ) .
Please fill out this Frugal Friday form. We may use your story in an upcoming segment
