How to Save More Money The Easy Way

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

With the economy still in the dumps, everyone I know asks the same question, how can I save more money?  Well here are 5 easy steps to add more green to your pocket each month:

  1.  Cut down to the essentials.  Do you really need to pay that extra $100 a month for all the movie channels, fastest internet, data on your cell phone, etc?  Take a look at each bill and do some price comparison with what you can cut down on and what companies you can switch to for better deals with ALL your bills.

  2. Coupons!  I can’t stress this enough.  The internet is a great resource to look up coupons for your everyday items that you can print from home.  It takes 30 minutes and a dozen sheets of paper but could save you $20 the next time you go to the grocery store.

  3. Look around the house for things that you don’t need any more that you can sell.  This not only cuts down on the clutter but can put a few extra bucks in your pocket each month from selling on craigslist and eBay websites.

  4. Save every penny.  I do mean this literally, change isn’t the biggest cash-in but if you save all the change you get back from spending, you can find an extra few dollars at the end of the month.  If you are a debit card only sort of person, try doing the same method.  Each time you use your debit card, put the remaining change in your savings.  Ex:  You spend 36.20 on gas, take the extra $0.80 and put that in savings.  It might be a little pain at first but you will find it will actually make balancing a little easier and it will add up.

  5. Find ways to make money online.  Surveys and writing articles are a great way to make a little extra money.  It takes time to do so, but you have the potential of making an additional $50+ extra a month!
