Greetings and welcome to part 2 of our Series of Saving! Hopefully you've been inspired by our previous blog post and are back for more ways to save money...
6. Clip Away
6. Clip Away
While some may say not to clip coupons in order to avoid excess spending, we say clip away! If you have a grocery list written and a budget set for what you can spend, look for coupons for the items that you’ll be purchasing anyway. However, if you feel as though your clipping is getting out of hand – put down the scissors and walk away.
7. BYOB (Bag, not Beverage!)
When you bring your own shopping bags, many stores give you 5 cents off per bag! It seems small, but a nickel saved is a nickel earned.
8. Sip from a Reusable Water Bottle
Plastic water bottles can be expensive and wasteful. If you’re spending extra for bottled water, put the money toward a water filter instead and switch to a reusable water bottle. Both your wallet and the environment will thank you.
9. Quit Smoking
We know this is much easier said than done, but if you need a little extra motivation, here you go: when you quit smoking you won’t only save money from cigarette purchases, but your insurance premiums may go down as well.
10. Cut the Home Phone
Stop and ask yourself if you really need that home phone line you’re paying for. If you find you use your cell for most calls, maybe it’s time to get rid of the ‘ol land line.
Remember, this is a four-part series, we'll have more money saving tips coming your way soon - Happy saving!
