Our Complete Guide to Saving Money 

Our Complete Guide to Saving Money 

Saving money isn’t a one-step process - there are tons of tips and tricks out there to help. We’ve narrowed it down to some of the most practical but impactful changes you can make to maximize your money saving.  

Plan Out Your Grocery Trips  

Going to the grocery store without a plan can be a dangerous game to play, and most people spend way more than needed at those registers. Start by planning out your meals for the week and only purchasing what you need for those meals. You’ll be doing your wallet and your body a favor!   

Cut Down on Those Subscriptions & Memberships  

Netflix now has over 150 million people subscribed to their service, so this step most likely applies to almost everyone. Some subscriptions are fine to have, but there are many unnecessary and unused memberships out there. They might seem relatively cheap per month, but once you add up all of the subscriptions and all the months of use, you’d be surprised how much money you could have saved without them.  

Set Up Automated Savings  

If you haven’t set up your account to automatically transfer money to your savings yet, it’s time to start. It might be weird and frustrating at first, but soon enough you won’t even notice the money you’re missing, and your future self will thank you! 

Sell What You Don’t Need  

Go through everything you own and sell the things you don’t need anymore. The random items you have laying around can add up, and odds are you won’t even notice that they’re gone. This is a great way to invest in your emergency fund, too!  

Skip the Restaurants & Coffee Shops  

You’d be surprised how much of a difference preparing things at home instead of going out can make. For example, most people spend around $2-$5 at a coffee shop, while making coffee at home only costs about 16 cents per cup. Start skipping overpriced food and drinks and start making some homemade goods!  

Save Some Energy  

Not only is saving energy good for the environment, but it’s great for someone looking to save money, too. Your electric bill can make a big difference in how much you pay per month. Take a few practical energy-saving steps, like taking shorter showers and shutting off unused lights, to see a big drop in your bill.  

Taking some practical and simple steps towards saving money will produce big results. There’s no better time to start saving than now, so give these tips a try!
