(Barely) Trim Your Budget
If you have a budget for various things or activities, then trimming it just a little bit might not be noticeable for you, but it could go a long way. Say you reserve $30 for clothes a month. Drop that down to $25. If you have $50 set aside for this month’s restaurant outings, then cutting $5 off won’t make a huge difference, but the cash will add up at the end of the month anyway!
Turn Down the A/C
Yes, you can spend less on your utility bill if you make actual changes. For example, don’t leave your A/C running while you’re out. At night time, if you can sleep open windows and with a fan blowing on you, you’ll also save a lot of money.
This is something that a lot of us vow to do on a regular basis but never get around to actually doing it. But if you’re serious about saving money, you won’t let a little heat stop you, right?
Replace Restaurant Outings With Your Crock-Pot
If you have a crock-pot, it’s time to put it to good use, especially if you’re not using it as often as you should. Do you go out to restaurants more often than you cook at home? What about take away?
By replacing two of these meals per month and using your crock-pot instead, you could save up quite a lot over time. Remember, your pot is easy to use and can make a lot of food for less money than you’re spending otherwise!
