September 20, 2016

Let’s face it, saving money is something we all want to do, but sometimes it takes so much effort that we don’t even know if it’s worth the energy to do so. Well now your problem is solved! We found some of the best and easiest ways to save your hard earned money.

The 30 Day Rule

One of the main ways to save money is to cut back on frivolous spending. The 30 day rule suggests that if you are considering buying something, to wait 30 days before doing so. If you still want the item after 30 days then do it, but you’ll be surprised by how many things you will decide not to purchase after having the time to consider them.

Write down your grocery lists

This one seems simple but it works. Writing down a list of things and sticking to it helps to eliminate items from your cart that you don’t need and let’s you better plan and budget as well.

Negotiate your rates

Negotiating with your bank, insurance company, cell phone provider and credit card companies makes a huge difference! Most of them are able to give you way better rates than you already have, especially if you have been a good and loyal customer!

Have a “Staycation”

Instead of going to a pricey vacation destination, stay home and explore your local community. Make things fun by having activities and places you want to go planned so that you make the most of your time and discover more about the place you live.

Do price checks

Before buying anything expensive, make sure you do your homework and compare prices. Technology has made this so much easier to do with many apps available such as ShopSavvy, GasBuddy, PurchX and many more accessible through the click of a button.
