Drive less aggressively. Seriously, anticipate traffic slowdowns and stop signs/lights, let off the gas earlier, and coast more. From 60 mph, if you can drop 15-20 mph by coasting instead of braking, your brakes will last 25-30% longer.

Buy better brakes. Most auto parts stores offer cheap brakes the wear quickly, OK brakes mid-grade brakes that wear OK, and quality brakes that stop the best and last the longest. Most repair shop shops install low grade to mid-grade brakes.
