15 Feb OUR TOP FUN WAYS TO SAVE MONEY TO GET YOU INTO YOUR NEW HOME!
Saving money is never an easy task and can sometimes put a downer on many plans and purchases which can often lead to failure in achieving your savings goal. To get you motivated again we have put together our top fun ways that you can save for that dream home.
1. Use Cash
Every pay day plan out your expenses and take out the cash needed to cater for them. This will keep you from spending too much, which is easy to do with a debit card and the easy option to swipe and go. Physically seeing how much cash you have will deter you from making any unnecessary and spur of the moment purchases.
2. Save Your Change
When making your budgeted purchases if you suddenly find yourself with some change save it instead of buying something else. If you do this every time you spend money, you’ll have a nice little stash in no time.
3. Ditch the Pay TV
While many pay tv options don’t seem like much a month $10 here for Netflix or $10 there for Stan, they can add up very quickly and really how much TV do you need? Try watching only free TV while you are trying to save and watch your savings grow.
4. DIY Herbs & Veggies
Its sounds weird however not matter where you live you can grow at least a few things that can save you money and have you eating more fresh foods. Herbs, Chilies, Cherry Tomatoes etc can all be grown on windows sills and small pots, you may even find it therapeutic.
5. Swap Clothes
Do you have a friend or family member that wears the same size as you? Consider doing a clothing swap rather than buying a new outfit for a party or event. Chances are, you’ll only wear that outfit once or twice, so borrowing will save you money and room in your closet.
6. Make Your Own Household Cleaning Supplies
Not only is making cleaning supplies cost-effective, but it’s also eco-friendly. With some vinegar and a little borax and even lemon juice, you’ve got yourself an all-purpose cleaner in no time. A quick google searches and you will have an abundance of options.
We hope these fun saving options will motivate you to keep saving for your dream home.
