How To Save Money

Posted on 29. Apr, 2013 by in Financial Planning

If you are like most people, then you are probably trying to reduce the amount of money that you spend every month.  Fortunately, there are several things that you can do to save money without making a drastic change in your lifestyle. One of the simplest things that you can do to save money is to make a list before you go the grocery store. You should only buy the items that you put on the list.

You should consider cooking at home more. It is not only less expensive, but it is also a-lot healthier than eating at a restaurant.

You may also want to consider using coupons. Coupons can help you save 20 percent or more on purchases. You can find coupons in newspapers, magazines and online. Over time, you will be able to save a lot of money  by using coupons. For example, you save $100 per month by using coupons. You will be able to save $1,200 in one year.

Entertainment is another major expense for many families.  That is why you should consider inviting friends over instead of going out to the movies or to dinner. You should also take advantage of free entertainment. The local walking trail, state museum and library are examples of places that you can go for free.

Furthermore, you may want to consider using your credit card less. If you accumulate a high balance on your card, then it will take you a-lot longer to pay off the card. You will also have to pay a high interest rate.
