Last week, we talked about how to make savings and one of the ways I cited was use of a piggy bank by buying resalable commodities.
This time round, let us look at how you can cut down on your expenditure as a way of saving.
First, try to seek for means to reduce your electricity, water and transport bills. In order to save on your electricity consumption, ensure that you don’t make use of many electric gadgets at the same time.
Also, once in a while, try to reduce fuel costs by walking home to your workplace.
Secondly, have your dinner meals at home and avoid hanging out often. You could also pack your breakfast and lunch from home to avoid spending in restaurants. All in all, compare how much you have saved by making such stringent measures.
Ensure that you ask for discounts and bargain for the fairest price possible. Surprisingly, there are many businesses willing to offers discounts on the commodities you purchase. Before you buy, make sure you compare prices and see which the fairest price possible.
While this may seem luxurious, buying durable goods, which most of many perceive as expensive. However, the opposite is true.
Cut down your calling bills by opting to load airtime in bulk rather than loading every time you want to utilise a service. Check for the telephone service provider with the most affordable rates.
Avoid buying things you don’t need at any particular time and avoid carrying much money with you as this would prompt you to buy things you do not necessarily need.
Have you ever realised that breaking down your budget down probably on a daily basis brings about certain hidden costs?, Instead, ensure that you cut down on the foods you buy within a certain period, for instance weekly, by assessing each food item and its alternatives to determine which is cheaper.
Ultimately, this would help you to reduce on your expenditure save enough from your income.
