Plan ahead. Don't let the gas tank get below one-quarter full. Keep a well-stocked emergency shelf of home staples. The way I do this is if I open the last package of something, I go ahead and put that item on the next grocery list, even if I don't use up the whole package. Don't wait until you're down to your last bus token or postage stamp to buy more, etc.
