Money Saving Tips
-Start on the first day of the month and save every receipt. Review the stack at the end of the month. This will allow you to clearly see where all of your money goes, and see what changes need to be made.
-Aim for short-term savings goals, such as setting aside $20 a week or month rather than long term goals. People save more successfully when they keep the short-term goal in sight.
-When grocery shopping make a list beforehand and stick to it. People who stick to the list and buy little else spend much less than those who decide what to buy when they get there.
-Keep your car engine tuned and its tires inflated to their proper pressure. Also, when driving, avoid fast start-ups and stops. Doing these will save you a lot on both gas and maintenance costs.
-Use window coverings to block or let in sunshine. In summer, use these coverings to block sunlight, keeping your house cool. In winter, open the coverings to let sunshine warm the house. You'll save on energy costs and be more comfortable.
