16 Aug Saving Money = Making Money
Many of the times that we find ourselves looking at our bank account, we are regretting the avenues our money went down, thinking of better paths our coin could’ve ventured. We wish we could’ve spent our money more wisely, and many times that wise decision is not spending our money at all. Budgets are one thing, but making sure that our money is spent properly is a whole other thing in general. Here are some tips that every person can use to cut their spending enough to make a more than noticeable dent in their budget.
Many of these tips may seem like common sense, but more often than not, it is the things right in front of us that we fail to see most of all. One thing that many of us need to do is take control of our cards. Spending money is easy when its imaginary. Switching to cash only is a good start, but there are other avenues we can take as well. Recurring fees on our cards can leave a large hole in our budget that can become easy to overlook. There are many sites that can search any recurring charges on your card and bring them to light. Streaming subscriptions, magazines, clubs and rewards cards, you name it and these sites will find it. One of them is known as Asktrim.com. Check this site out and others like it to save you a lot of money in the long run.
Cutting utilities can become an easy way to make your budget just a little bit easier to deal with month to month. Using dryer balls, replacing lightbulbs, and cleaning your HVAC filters are just a few things. But also, you can do your chores at night when most people aren’t, this causes a lower fee from the utility companies due to the fact that it isn’t rush hour for hot water and gas. Turning your hot water heater down could passively make a few dollars, as well as replacing faucet and shower heads to reduce the water bill. These things seem menial in the short run but can make a monumental difference when you add up the dollars and cents.
Outside of these things you can pick up side hustles through buying/selling apps such as ‘let go’, ‘offer up’, and ‘gone’, to put some of those things collecting dust around your house. And if you’re good enough at it, it can become a very lucrative pastime. At the end of the day, we never really stop working. It’s important that we recognize that the work just changes faces, places, and paychecks. Cutting a few loose ends and tying them up with better means could mean the worlds difference when you look at your account at the end of the year.
