I have really had some deep thoughts about some habits and decisions I have been making that saves me some money which when accumulated over time is actually a large sum. Here are some of my useful advice :
Online Shopping - Shopping online is fantastic because the selections of things you can buy are endless versus the stores you have to physically travel to. Since it’s a wider selection you can find more quality products for way cheaper prices.
Zero Addictions - I’m not big into drugs, alcohol, gambling, or anything like that. Getting hooked on these habits can be really costly.
Bringing My Own Lunch To Work - When I first started working I would eat out all the time. I live in the city and the food options are wide and diverse and it was hard to resist. My stomach was happy but my wallet wasn’t. Since making it a habit to bring my own lunch to work I’ve gotten better at cooking while saving a lot more money.
No Cable TV - I have a TV in my apartment but I don’t pay for cable. Most of what I watch is on YouTube or a streaming site so I just connect my laptop to my TV and watch whatever I want.
Buying Higher Quality Products - Sometimes it’s not always about finding the cheapest deal when it comes to buying something. When I know I need to buy something important like a new coat or snow boots, I make sure I spend more money on a higher quality product. Spending more money on a higher quality product will last longer than buying a cheaper product and having to spend money again to replace it.
Coupons And Discount Codes - Sometimes stores ask for your email or contact information when you buy something and afterwards you start to get regular emails from them. I used to delete these emails until I realized a lot of these emails have coupons and discount codes in them that save you a ton of money.
Collect Loose Change - Get a jar or some sort of container and put any loose change you find or collect in it. Over time that amount will grow and you can cash it in later!
With all these being said you could save yourself a lot of cash 💰💰💰 without even knowing
