Let’s face it, we all could do with saving a little more money. Whether you’re looking to buy your first car, or looking to take a chunk out of that credit card debt, there’s a multitude of reasons why you might be trying to save those pennies. Thankfully the experts at HIDDEN have put their heads together to create a guide to saving money. So without further adieu, here are 5 Ways To Save More Money,
No.1 DIY Is Your Friend
Saving money is all about being resourceful. Using what you already have in your cupboards is a great way to save dollars while not being wasteful. We all know that eating out for lunch can be pricey, so why not slash those prices by packing your own meal with the unused items in your kitchen. It doesn’t have to stop there, why not go a step further and batch cook dinners and breakfasts. Your freezer is most certainly your friend during your money-saving phase.
No.2 Fail To Prepare, Prepare To Fail
Being a saving queen requires planning. Sitting down and figuring out your monthly income and outgoings is the first step to making a positive change to your spending habits. Creating a visual list can not only show you where your money is going but also identify where you can save. Once you’ve figured out your streamlined budget, you can even begin to plan a contingency kitty. We all know things can pop up last minute, from friends birthday bashes to car maintenance - so it’s smart to make allowances for these occasions.
N.3 Become A Coupon Queen
A great way to save money without living on the breadline is by seeking out the best deals. Discount sites, loyalty points, and coupons are all fabulous inventions that you should take advantage of - because saving money doesn’t mean you can’t treat yourself. Become smart with your shopping, search the reduced section in your local supermarket for hidden gems or why not check out the sale section for our best deals.
No.4 Set A Daily Budget
Another fantastic way to save some serious dollars is to set a daily budget. A daily allowance can help you not only create structure in your daily routine but also become more aware of your spending. Within a few days, you’ll realise the number of unnecessary expenses you pay out on a regular basis, and it'll give you a fantastic sense of accomplishment when you reach your goal.
No.5 30 Day Rule
A fantastic money saving tool is the 30 Day Rule. This theory involves waiting 30 days before purchasing the wanted items in your shopping basket. 9 times out 10 when the 30 days are up, you’ll completely forget about the products or realise you don’t actually need them. If you still have the twitch to reach for your credit card after this period then you know it’ll be money well spent. Genius right?!
