If there is one thing that many people wish they could do differently, it’s saving money! It is all too easy to spend money on silly things, that often seem great at the time. But, as time goes on and whatver you bough gets pushed to the back of the closet, you soon realize the importance of saving money (and not buying those silly things to begin with).
Well, if you are looking for EASY ways to save money, you are in the right place! Here are seven ways to save money, every single day.
1- Carry and Use Cash
Let’s be honest- pulling out a debit or credit card is way too easy. If you really want to save money, ditch the plastic and start carrying cash. You’ll keep less money on you in paper form and thus spend less! You can also physically SEE the money disappearing, which makes you really think about each purchase a little bit more.
2- Eat Leftovers
Tons of people are turned off by the thought of leftovers, but why throw out perfectly good food just because you made a little too much the night before? If you really do not want the same meal twice in a row, simply spice up your leftovers and put your taco meat on a bed of nachos, instead of a tortilla.
3- Turn Off and Unplug Electronics
While you may not notice the savings until your electric bill comes, you can save money each day simply by turning off the lights when you leave the room. You can also save money by unplugging your phone charger, and other electronics that are still pulling a draw, even when not in use.
4- Wait for a Full Load
Hold off on that dreaded task of laundry until you have a full load of soiled clothes. Not only will you be able to save a little on your utilities, but you also will not save on costly laundry detergent.
5- Meal Plan
Meal planning is a great way to make sure that you know what kind of groceries to have on hand each week. This prevents you from ordering takeout or pizza when you don’t know what to have, or don’t have all of the right ingredients.
6- Ditch the Gym Membership
Stop spending money at the gym when you can enjoy a variety of free workouts in your very own home. Watch some YouTube videos or rent an exercise DVD from the library, for free!
7- Make Your Own Coffee
Can’t start your day without a cup of morning coffee? No problem! Simply make your own at home. It may not taste quite as good as that tall white chocolate mocha from the coffee shop down the road, but you can create your own concoctions for a fraction of the cost at home.
In the end, remember all of the small things truly add up. How do you try and save money every single day?
