Can’t remember the last time you had some spare cash lying around? You soon will because we are giving you some simple, yet efficient ways which will have you saving more than ever.
MAKE IT A LONG-TERM RELATIONSHIP
Want to go to the Maldives, but waiting for your next lifetime where you may have a better financial track record? You don’t have to. Make a budget of how much that dream trip is going to set you back and start saving. Each month, as soon as your paycheck comes in, set aside the money you have allotted and in a few years you will surely be feeling the warm sand between your toes as you gleefully sip that cocktail on the beach.
BUY A PIGGY BANK
It may sound silly and frivolous, but trust us – it works. Each night empty out your coins from your purse or wallet into your piggy bank. By the end of the month you will have saved probably more than you have in the past few years. With this money you can afford fun date nights, put the money towards your children’s college fund or make an emergency stash to save you on those rainy days when your car decides to stop working or your teeth happen to start aching.
TREAT YOURSELF ON THE REGULAR
Give yourself a monthly treat budget. Make sure to keep the amount the same each month and place the money in an envelope or drawer, but always keep the money in the same place. This treat money can be spent throughout the month on whatever floats your fun boat. When the money runs out wait until next month for your spending adventures and stick to money savvy outings instead.
Saving doesn’t have to cost you the lifestyle you have already become accustomed to. Follow these tips and allow yourself the ability to save and enjoy your life at the same time.
