10 Money Saving Tips To Put More Cash In Your Pocket

 (All posts may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure policy

It can sometimes feel that we’re always looking at our bank balance and grimacing, always worrying about whether we’ll be able to afford the cost of a bill, and so on. Sometimes, it makes sense; at others, it doesn’t. If you know you have a job that should be able to live off, then it might be your spending habits that need checking, not your salary. Here are ten tips to put that cash back where it belongs: in your wallet.

pexels-photo-259165.jpeg

What Are You Spending?

Before you’re able to figure out how to save more of your money, you need to establish where exactly it’s going in the first place. For one week or month, keep a list of all your incomings and outgoings. It might be that you’re spending far too much money on one thing (let’s say, travel). Once you know where it’s going, you’ll be able to better focus your energies on reducing how much you’re spending. We can very easily end up spending more than we think on things we thought were pretty cheap!

Reviewing the Finances

If you’ve been spending more money than you should have, then you’ll need to review your financial situation, as being in debt can cost you much more money than if you’re financially secure. If necessary, get help with your finances before you do anything else. Once you’ve plugged the hole in the ship, you’ll be able to focus on getting it back on course. Small credit card bills and other debts can quickly add up, so it’s important to take care of them as soon as possible.

Cutting What You Don’t Need

If you had all the money in the world, we’re sure you could find plenty of things to spend your money on. But the fact of life is, you can’t have everything in this world. If you’re spending a large chunk of your income on what could be considered luxuries, it’s time to trim away the fat and focus on the essentials. This doesn’t mean getting rid of everything that isn’t bags of fun; it’s just about really asking whether you need one thing or not. For example, you probably do need an internet connection, but you might not need a cable television subscription.

Buying Smarter

We tend to fall into the habit of buying things the only ways we know how. It might be that we’re used to going to the shop, picking out whatever we need, and throwing it into our shopping trolley. That’s another luxury that you might not be able to indulge in. Instead, you should be looking at the smart ways to buy your household food and items. There are plenty of coupons available, as this very website shows, and you can also save a lot of money if you buy in bulk. You can dramatically cut your monthly shopping bill if you just think about what you’re buying.

Cutting the Bills

It’s not cheap to maintain a home, but it probably doesn’t have to be as expensive as it currently is. If you get smart about the energy you use in your home, then you can reduce your energy bills. For example, install installation in your home, and you won’t need as much heat to keep your house warm, as the walls will retain the heat longer. You should also look at switching off any electrical appliances at the wall.

Loose Change

How often do you withdraw money, end up with some loose change, and then promptly spend it on something that you don’t really need? If you have money burning a hole in your pocket, you’re liable to make any number of avoidable purchases. Instead, take any loose change you have and put it in a jar. It might not sound like a lot, but in a year you could have hundreds of dollars, and it won’t even feel like saving! Another good tip is to only withdraw your money when you need it, rather than just having it “just in case”.

Change Your Social Life

It’s not cheap maintaining a social life. There are dinners with friends, drinks with the coworkers, cinema trips with the loved ones...it quickly adds up. No one’s suggesting you stop being social; instead, change what you do when you’re social. Instead of going to the bar, invite friends around to your home for drinks instead. Don’t go to the cinema on a Saturday night, go during the week the tickets are cheaper, and so on.

Eating Well

Saving money should not come at the cost of compromising your health. It’s still important to eat healthy, even if you ask trying to save money. Most people don’t realize that many of the ingredients that combine to make a healthy meal can be very cheap. Learn the art of cooking delicious meals on the cheap and you’ll ensure your family eats well without breaking the bank. Being unhealthy is also an expensive business when you need more medical treatment!

Second-Hand Goods

You can’t avoid buying things forever. Some things you just need, and while friends and older family members might appreciate handmade goods, sometimes you’ll need to buy a paid gift. Instead of blindly buying the item you want for full sticker price, take a look to see if there are any second-hand options available. If you’re buying electrical appliances such as smartphones, laptops, and televisions, it can also be worth looking at refurbished models. They’re practically the same as new items, but cost much less.

Invest in the Right Areas

Money saving is really about being sensible with your money. It doesn’t mean not spending: it means spending your money well. If you are going to buy things, make sure they’re good investments. For example, a $70 pair of shoes is obviously more expensive than a pair that costs $30, but they might last four times as long, so it’s a good purchase. Similarly, spending money on a course that might help you earn more money, in the long run, would be another good investment.

How To Renovate Your Home When Funds Are Low

 (All posts may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure policy

Running a house is exhausting. Not only do you have to keep everything clean and tidy but you have to also deal with the cruel effects of age. No matter how hard you try, things are going to start wearing out over time, and you’re going to have to bite the bullet at some point in terms of considering renovation. Of course, that’s all easier said than done. Even if you had the time to renovate in between working and taking care of your family, there’s always the small matter of money.

When funds are low, it feels as if there are a million costly items on your ‘To Do’ list, but you only have the money to cover a few of them. Renovating your house is probably quite low down because you feel as if you can live with it. However, you don’t have to live with it. In fact, redesigning your home hardly has to cost you any money at all if you put some long, hard thought into it. Here are some tips to help you renovate your home when funds are low.

(photo credit)

Make a plan.

When the budget is a huge part of the renovation task at hand, it’s important to put some time into making a clear and detailed plan. Diving straight in isn’t a good idea because you’ll end up far less impressed with your house if you realize halfway through the project that you’ve run out of funds. A half-completed house might look messier than the old one. Set yourself a clear budget, and stick to it.

Figure out how much materials will cost, and decide which tasks are the most important if you don’t have enough money for everything. If the bathroom has needed a makeover for a while then make that a priority over any other room. Plan every last detail before you get started, and give the house a deep clean and deep tidy before you start so that you get a real idea of how much work you actually need to do. You don’t want to waste money.

Get stuck in with DIY.

Now that you’re ready to get started, try and do as much by yourself as possible; you might be surprised by how much you can achieve without the help of other people. You could do your own demolition and save a huge amount of money, for example. YouTube videos are your friend, and you could be putting up your own shelves or fitting new kitchen appliances in no time. You’ll probably want to get yourself a trusted set of screwdrivers because screws truly are the answer to fixing every broken thing in an old household. Okay, maybe not everything can be fixed with screws, but broken shelving, cabinets, bed frames, wardrobes, and essentially anything involving wood can be fixed with screws.

Don’t cut too many corners.

Before you leave this article and get stuck in, take this last piece of advice on board; don’t cut corners. If you want to save money then do so by taking on small projects. Don’t take on a big project and do a substandard job. Remember, when you’re saving for the sake of saving then you’re costing yourself your happiness rather than your money. Being frugal is sensible, but your household budget can still survive if you stay within the realm of spending what you can afford in order to make your home look that little bit nicer.
