In our last blog post we talked about New Year’s resolutions (We hope you’re doing as well with yours as we are with ours!) and something that it seems like everyone could use some help with is SAVING.
The holiday season left many of our piggy banks feeling pretty empty. Take control of your money in 2017 by making a few small changes now to get your spending and saving back on track!
Here are a few easy, every day tips to keep in mind:
Save your change
Cut down on coffee runs
Cook at home
Take your lunch to work
Use a shopping list
Compare prices (in store or online)
De-clutter by selling your old stuff
Stop buying bottled water
Grocery shop on a full stomach
Don’t buy impulsively – write things you want on a list and wait a certain amount of time before purchasing
There are tons of different money saving plans that can be helpful too and how challenging they are varies. We’ve included some examples of our favorites for you, but there a hundreds more just a quick Google or Pinterest search away.
