Instead of reinventing the wheel about saving money, I thought I would take a gander at some hacks already online that focus on saving and stretching money. Here are a few of my favorites
Here are 75 ways a homesteading family saves and stretches what money they have. Not every tip will work for all of us, but some of them are sound.
- #5: Keep up with what’s in your refrigerator. This is a huge one for many of us. I know I always have some sort of science experiment going on in the back of the fridge. I’ve also had to ditch many good Snapware containers because of said experiments.
- #16: Bartering for services. This one is geared just toward carpenters but it can include anything from hairstylists to house cleaners to ghost writers to personal trainers to personal chefs to event planners to photographers. Make a list of the talents you have and maybe you can use them to barter for the next job you that needs doing.
100 simple ideas for people to start saving money. The simpler the idea the easier it is to save money.
#8: Invite friends over instead of eating out. This one can be even more cost effective if you turn it into a potluck. Each of your friends brings part of the meal and you’re not stuck with the bill of feeding everyone.
#39: Join up with a Volunteer Program. I learned something from this one as I did not know that you could volunteer with a different program and earn money to help pay off your student loans.
These are 94 ways to save money creatively, some I’ve seen before and well, some are very creative.
#9: Take care of yourself. A healthier you costs you less money. It doesn’t take much to keep yourself healthy. Wash your hands often, take your vitamins, drink plenty of water, keep your servings at a healthy level, eat your veggies, dump the junk food, eat clean, exercise. These will save you money in the long run. The less sick days you have the more money you’ll have in your pocket.
#49: Check your labels. Anything that needs to be dry cleaned is going to cost you more money than just the initial cost shock. Have you checked out how much it costs for dry cleaning, not to mention the chemicals involved?
These are just three websites to get you started on the road to keep more money in your pocket to pay off your debt or just save more for those rainy days.
Wishing you wellness for a new day.
