Make Use Of The Things You Already Own
In the era of material abundance, it’s easy to lose track of just how much stuff we have lying around. Going through it all and cataloguing it can be lucrative for several reasons.
Make Sure You’re Not Paying Card Fees
There’s nothing worse than paying fees just to spend your own money. Look closely at the fees and conditions of all your bank cards and accounts, and see exactly what you’re getting billed for.
Plan Your Meals And Groceries
Spur-of-the-moment purchases are the mortal enemy of savings, and few spurs are more enticing than a quick snack. But with a little planning, you won’t have to choose between money pains and hunger pains.
Use Your Library
If you’re a bookworm or a cinephile, you can save big by feeding your hunger for fresh content at the uni library. It’s free, it’s easy, and if you’re into eBooks or audiobooks, it can even be done from home.
Drink More Water
Water isn’t just good for your physical and mental health – reducing stress and the chances of incurring headaches and migraines – it’s also an effective appetite suppressant.
Use A Zero-Sum Budget
If you’re money’s burning a hole in your pocket, take it out of your pocket. And by “pocket” I mean your checking account.
Meet Up With Friends
Boredom and loneliness are a recipe for unplanned spending. Save yourself the temptation of eating out or indulging in some retail therapy by doing something inexpensive with friends. Movie nights at home or cooking as a group are great examples.
