When it comes to savings, loads of Kiwis are finding it hard to get ahead. So if you're a fan of frugality, we want to know how you do it.

With only modest wage increases and soaring house prices, housing affordability is at its worst level in years. And after housing, it seems the biggest drain on family finances is food with the average household spending $193 a week.

But there are plenty of money savvy people out there who seem to be able to make a dollar stretch to five, who ferret away money for those rainy days and big ticket bills. If this is you, we want your advice.

Give us your tips for saving with other Kiwis. Do you have a plan mapped out? Is there a secret to keeping track of your money?

What's the most extreme thing you've done to save some cash? Did it work and would you do it again?
