What are some basic money saving strategies you can use in every day life? Many times we spend a few dollars here and there and don’t even realize where the change and single dollars go. You can save a lot of money by changing your lifestyle. I recommend taking a week or even a month and saving every receipt to take note of the many places you can eliminate spending money for better saving strategies!
I also like to help myself mentally by having a specific item or place in mind that I can think about when I am tempted to spend money. Whether it’s a trip, a shopping item or your goal is to get rid of a debt you owe, mentally prepare yourself with what you will do with some of your bank savings! Right now, I’m saving for a cruise!
