1. Avoid Card Payments: Yes, they are convenient. But when you start using cards for payments, you lose track of the money spent. Plus, you won’t be a spendthrift if you pay with cash.
2. Unplug Your Unused Electrical Devices: It is said that some electrical devices that are plugged to the charger continue to consume some amount of energy even when they are not in use, which later adds up to your electricity bill.
3. Sell Your Unused Items: One of the toughest things to do on this earth is to let go of your old items. But if they are not in use, sell them off. You’d be surprised what you’d find takers for.
4. Say Hello To Vouchers And Sales: Wait for sales or use vouchers while out shopping. It’s a great way of saving money.
In fact, you should even consider buying groceries during the supermarket sales.
5. Cancel Unnecessary Subscriptions: If you read online news, cancel your newspaper subscriptions. Also, if you don’t visit your gym or community club regularly, cancel the membership.
6. Change Your Phone And Internet Plan: If you don’t make endless calls or use Wi-fi at home, then customise your phone and internet plan as per your usage. You might not realise it but that unlimited data plan might be too much if your data consumption is less than half of that.
7. Cut Down On Eating Out: Instead of stepping out for lunch or dinner every other day, cook your meals at home. In fact, prepare food in bulk and store it in the freezer so that you can survive on the leftovers for a day or two.
