10 ways to save $1,000 by the holidays

I recently read an interesting article on how to save $1,000 by Christmas.

In short, here were the tips:

1. Lower your cell phone bill.
2. Lose your land line.
3. Staycation instead of vacation.
4. Raise your insurance deductibles.
5. Drop the gym.
6. Drop premium cable channels – or drop cable altogether.
7. Sell Stuff.
8. Save on Food.
9. Haggle.
10.Carry only cash.

Now, I've only done half of these suggestions: Numbers 2, 3, 5 and 8 and have saved about a couple hundred dollars a month.
Do you do any of these suggestions?
If so, how much have you saved so far?
Will you by buying holiday gifts with your savings?
