Small Things You Can Do When Trying to Save Money

October 25th, 2012

There are some things we do that are only socially acceptable when we’re completely broke.

It’s like there’s an unspoken rule that says “Dude, don’t do it if you can afford not to… but otherwise…go for it!”

Sharing a plate with a friend at an all-you-can-eat restaurant.

All-you-can-eat restaurants are a great and super cheap way to dine out with friends and loved ones when trying to pinch the pennies. Restricting your eating out habbits can often feel like punishment and you can begin to feel like your social life is suffering. Make sure your searching for the right deals and head out for an all-you-can-eat. 

Master the art of nifty shopping

It’s so easy to shop with convenience as the priority. Need some cleaning products? Sure, just pick them up from the closest grocery store. This is and easy solution but it’s not the most cost effective. Buy online in bulk or consider discount stores that may not stock brand names but often stock other great solutions. Be smart with those little things, they all add up.

Meal Plan

Everyone makes it to be so easy but the reality is meal planning is a difficult task. It’s difficult because it requires time. Once you allocate that time – it’s much easier. Set aside time to plan your weekly meals and resist the tempation to grab that sandwhich from the coffee shop downstairs. Bugeting for your meal planning is the first step to meal plan success!

Share the Load

All too often we wash half loads of washing or load a half empty dishwasher – these are habbits that can cost a lot in the long run. If you can manage to break these little habbits – you could end up saving a lot.

Ask yourself an important question

It takes just 3 seconds to ask yourself if you really need something. We’re all guilty of impulse buying but if you stop for just a few seconds and hit the pause button on purchase you could end up saving.
