How To Save Money

Being on a budget can be difficult, but by using these 3 tips it has been possible for me to save money and be on my way to getting out of debt.

Check your bank account everyday

In a world where we can tap our card and buy a product in seconds, it’s easy to lose track of how much we are spending. I found my spending massively decreased when I checked my bank account every day. It made me feel more accountable for my luxury purchases. For example, I realised how much an occasional taxi home from work made a real impact onto my finances.

Have several streams of income

Start a Etsy store with some personal artwork, sell old clothes on eBay or make a blog! There are thousands of ways to add to your income, whilst still maintaining a ‘traditional’ career.

Buy generic 

I’ll admit it, I used to be a complete brand snob. I would never buy own brand food, paracetamol or even cleaning supplies. But most supermarket own brand products are practically the same and can save you a lot of money on your weekly shop by buy generic products.
