How to Save Money on You

How often do you indulge in the latest fashions, fine dining, and movies? We hope to hear sometimes, not often, or better yet, once in a blue moon. Then again, you wouldn’t have clicked on this article if you didn’t have trouble saving money. If your overspending habits have begun to frustrate, have made you reach your boiling point, and you are this close to erupting, simmer down and walk around to blow off some steam. Following are amazing ways that will help overturn your aggressive spending habits to save money on you:

  1. Eat Home Cooked Meals

If you come home exhausted from work, don’t lean on fast food joints to eliminate your hunger. Not to mention how unhealthy it is to eat a meal of burgers and fries, not once in awhile, but every day. Keep off the fast food trail, cook at home or buy frozen and pre-packaged dinners and lunches.

  1. Purchase Food in Bulk

Going out to buy a loaf of bread or a carton of milk throughout the month is one of the main factors in losing money. Instead of purchasing each individual item separately, purchase the groceries for the whole month. Be on the lookout for coupons to get more for your money.

  1. Use the Slow Cooker

The slow cooker is an invention that you should be thankful for, as it can save you money on food. If you are not a fan of cooking every day, it can prepare you dinners and lunches for the whole week. Now, that is a praiseworthy invention of all the lazy cooks of the world.

  1. Pack Your Lunch

If you tend to order from restaurants when you are at work, quit doing that. You are only wasting money that you can save and maybe splurge on yourself a little, if not a lot.

  1. Make Your Own Espresso

This is for all the “coffeeholics” who cannot start their day unless they drink a boost of energy that comes in the form of coffee. If Starbucks or any other coffee shop has become your haunt for the past couple of years, you may want to get rid of the habit—not coffee (we had you there, right?). Brew your own coffee at home to take with you.

  1. Stop Purchasing Bottled Water

Unless you live in a country or place where tap water is unsafe and unclean to drink, you don’t need to buy bottled water. Keep your craving for mineral water at bay and drink water right from tap for free!

  1. Kill the Shopaholic in You

Unsubscribe to the emails, the text alerts, and magazines of your favorite stores. Undertake extreme measures and block their website if that’s what it takes. However, if you have enough restraint, all you have to do is say, “I don’t need that right now.” Be that person who knows when to stop purchasing and not the person who fills their closet with clothes and shoes that they don’t need.

  1. Compare Prices of Two Products

You don’t want to be robbed of your money so you have to take precautions. When you need to purchase an item, look up the prices to make the decisions, going with the lower price, of course. If what you want is pricier, head for the used items section, choosing a slightly used, but still in good condition item.

The next time you look at a coffee shop, your favorite stores, and a fast food joint, remember the balance of your bank account and on how you want it to stay at a desirable number.
