How can I improve my low-limit poker game?

PokerFilter: I have a weekly, $2 raise limit, about $20/night, dealer chooses the game friendly poker match with some friends. I need to improve my game. Any suggestions? (NOTE: No Texas Hold'em)

I have fun every week and consider the $20 money for 5 hours of entertainment, it's just a bit embarrassing being the biggest loser every night.
We usually play with 4-7 players, rotating dealer, and the most common games we play are 7 card stud (sometimes with one wild), 5 card draw (sometimes progressive pot), midnight baseball, high or low Chicago roll your own, and Queen and what follows.
We almost never play Texas hold'em, and we play with a very low limit, so none of the books I have seen look like they would help at all.
I'm just looking to improve my game a bit so I don't earn (or possibly maintain) the title of sucker.
BONUS: Our games can get a bit repetitive, so also feel free to mention any games that you know that would freshen things up.
