Money Savings Tips That Work



If you resolved to save money this year, here are a few tips that will help you change a few things in your routine and habits, and add on to your savings. Some of these tips are very basic and you may wonder how much will this help you save, but remember, the little things are the ones that matter most; less is more.

Tips to help you in your saving spree –

1.    Make an inventory list, and based on this make your shopping list before you go shopping. Refrain from impulse buying, stick to the list.
2.    Prepare a list of items that can be bought on bulk if there’s a deal. For instance, toilet paper.
3.    Use coupons. Always.
4.    Download a coupon app to help you get coupons handy.
5.    Join loyalty programs.
6.    When buying something online, add the item to your cart and wait for a day before you checkout. This way, your compulsive impulse buying can be checked.
7.    Use soft liquid detergent and hand wash or machine wash in ‘gentle’ mode, instead of giving it to dry cleaning. Use dry cleaning for clothes that absolutely require it.
8.    Get fresh produce at the farmers’ market.
9.    Sell old things you do not use anymore.
10.  Set up a garage sale before the start of new season, and dispose off all your clothing you will not wear anymore.
11.  Try DIY gifts.
12.  Pay bills on time to avoid late fee.
13.  Stop drinking soda. Its not only unhealthy but also becomes a habit (money wasting habit).
14.  Recycle and reuse grocery bags.
15.  Watch movies online instead of going to theatres.
16.  Cook at home, or order in if you have to. Avoid going out.
17.  Use leftover food.
18.  Carry lunch to work. A sandwich, some fruits, a simple salad, anything.
19.  Do more indoors like have a candle lit dinner with wine or watching movies together; going out at the bar or restaurant costs a lot more.
20.  Instead of going away for the weekend, try enjoying a day at the beach or have a little picnic at the park for a weekend activity.
21.  Buy used items whenever you can.
22.  Use public transport more than Uber, cabs or driving yourself.
23.  Get a bicycle to go short distances.
24.  Use wifi to make calls whenever you can.
25.  Turn off data romancing when you have access to wifi.
26.  Switch off lights and other buttons when not in use.
27.  Unplug gadgets not in use.
28.  Carry a water bottle with you in your bag, avoid buying bottled water.
29.  Review your cell phone plan to ensure you are on the optimum best.
30.  Make coffee at home. buy a sipper and carry your coffee with you to work.
31.   Always click picture of the receipt in case you have to return anything.
