1. Stop paying for text messages and potentially overage fees, with a variety of FREE texting apps.
"You'll tap into all of that through an app on your phone, as opposed to using standard messaging on your phone," says Kiplinger.com Managing Editor Robert Long. "Free of charge. The only thing you'll have to put up with are some ads here and there, of course."
2. Dig in your wallet to find and sell unwanted gift cards. Kiplinger says the average household has about $300 worth. An online gift card exchange won't give the full value of the card, but it's better than nothing.
3. Adjust your tax withholding, instead of waiting for the usual fat refund in the Spring. It's as simple as filing a new W4 form with your employer. The changes can take effect with your next paycheck and could put almost $500 in your bank account over the next 2 months.

Court rules against man who lost handgun permit
May 24, 2013 16:15 GMT
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Tennessee Appeals Court has ruled against a man who claimed state law regulating the carrying of firearms was unconstitutional.
Leonard Embody filed suit in 2010 after state officials took away his carry permit, finding a "material likelihood of risk of harm to the public."
The revocation came after Embody was detained by Belle Meade police in 2010 while walking with a .44 caliber black powder revolver in his hand. He was detained in 2009 while walking in Radnor Lake State Park with an AK-47-style pistol. There have been at least three similar incidents, although Embody was never charged with a crime.
Embody claimed in court the Second Amendment gave him a right to carry firearms.
The Appeals Court disagreed, ruling that the right to bear arms is not unrestricted.
