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.
