Save Money

If you are trying to save money, but the usual tips don’t apply to you because you have already thrown away your credit cards or started using coupons more, there are still little things you can do to save money that is easy to do. Here are just a few of them.

Enjoy What You Own Before You Buy More:

This tip is in regards to collecting things. Many people buy items such as books or movies but end up with large collections that they have never truly even gone through. Instead of buying more books, read the ones that you own first. Apply the same idea to movies. Once you have watched or read everything in your collection, then make the decision if you want to continue the collection. To save even more money, start going to the library more often for your literary and cinematic pursuits. You’ll end up spending nothing at all.

Check for Drafts:

Perform a walkthrough of your home and check to see if you feel any drafts. If you do feel any, make sure to seal them up as quickly as possible. When air is escaping your home, it is literally like money blowing out the window. After doing this, you will likely see a noticeable decrease in your energy bill. To reduce the energy bill even further, lower the thermostat a bit. You’ll find you’ll adjust to the reduced temperature quite quickly and your energy bill will be that much cheaper.

Reduce High-Interest Payments:

To save money on your monthly student loan payments, pick up the phone and shop around. If you have been making regular on-time payments, it is very likely you will qualify for a refinance loan. This will enable you to pay off your existing high-interest balances with a new obligation that offers a lower interest rate which will result, in drastically reduced monthly payments.

Get Rid of Your Cable:

If you are still clinging on to your cable, cancel it immediately, or if you are in a contract, as soon as it ends. There are plenty of other options out there for much cheaper entertainment. Single subscription services are a fraction of your cable bill. If you don’t mind sitting through commercials, there are plenty of absolutely free options you can use for entertainment as well.

Don’t Shop Just to Shop:

Instead of treating shopping as a fun time, treat it as a chore. Go into the store, whether grocery, clothing, or any other kind of store, with the intention of only buying what you went in for. This means not getting distracted by sales for things that you probably do not need. Remember, a sale is only useful if you need the item in the first place.

Wash Laundry on The Cold Setting:

When doing laundry, unless the clothing specifically states to wash the laundry in warm or hot water, it is best to wash it in cold water. Not only will you save on the energy bill, but your clothes will last longer as well.
