This is part two of my saving money tips, includes stop smoking and not going out.
Ok then I wrote an earlier article containing 15 ways to save money and now here is part 2 which contains even more ways to save money!
Ok then, you may be thinking what do I mean? Well I’m talking about supermarkets own brand food. So here in the UK we have the mighty Tesco who litter our streets and they have their own brand food called Tesco Value, I recommend you try some of these products out, whether it be tesco or any supermarket but just try them out as they will cost less meaning more money to spend on more important things.
What Speed is that?
Ok then you spends loads at the pump these days, but have you ever thought about maybe being able to fill up only once a week? How you do this is simple, instead of going at the speed limit, maybe drop around 20kmph/ 15mph it will amount to a lot of fuel saved as going faster uses more fuel which means more times to fill up.
So you just had a delicious meal out in a restaurant and it’s time to pay, if you pay a tip maybe think about giving less or none at all as this will mean you will save that extra bit of money, this will soon add up to a whole meals worth if you go out often.
Cut Down on Chocolate
So then, you might like the sweet, tasty brown good stuff but do you really need a lot? Try (if you eat lots) and only have up to 1 or 2 bars a week, it will save money plus it will mean you don’t gain as many pounds.
Partial to Alcohol?
So you might like a whisky or brandy before bed but it isn’t needed, your body doesn’t need it and neither does your credit card, cut it out! Maybe only have a glass on a Sunday and keep it to just 1 glass! Saves money and reduces the threat of bad kidneys.
I mentioned this in the last one but it still a huge money saver, stop the smoking with the help of social groups (UK have the NHS support) and quit the nicotine! Your body don’t like it and once again the credit card doesn’t like it! Saves around $200,000 in your lifetime if you smoke the death card a lot plus it takes away the risk of lung cancer.
Eat In Not Out
Instead of going out for dinner all the time, make it a treat which you will look forward to so make it at most once a month. It saves money on fuel and money on food as you can prepare delicious foods at home for a lot less.
Grow Your Veg
Right then you spend money on your vegetables to cook food with, why not spend less money and grow it yourself? Make a bit of your garden into a vegetable patch and there you go! After a few months you will be able to cut back a little on the amount you spend on vegetables as you will be eating your very own!
You don’t need to spend your money on the latest games so why not just get a game and stick to it, if you get bored go and play on one of the games which you have bought previously, then treat yourself to a game about 2 months later.
Ok are you competing with your neighbour of who is the better well off? Well don’t! There is no point and you should just accept that everyone is equal whatever or whoever they are. So don’t compete and just buy the necessary things instead of what the competition buys.
There you have it, another 10 ways to save yourself money! Hope you enjoyed reading.
