Stop whining about your salary and start using these savvy tricks to save more money and stay happy even when you do not earn a lot. An empty pocket surely teaches you lifelong lessons and today I am sharing those precious lessons with you that I learned the hard way. Do not repeat the mistakes I made and instead of becoming a money minting machine and doing two jobs or handling your business alongside your work, concentrate on a single job and start saving money from today so, that you always have spare money. Make following lifestyle modifications and save more money effortlessly:
Get a cycle:
Get a cycle for you and use it to commute to work and other places. It will not only help you save money spent on fuel but will also help you in extraordinary ways. You will not have to set aside money to pay for your gym or aerobics class as cycling will give you a perfect figure that you always cherished. What is more is that it will give you happiness as you will know that you are not contributing to air pollution which ultimately causes damage to ozone. So, you will be saving money as well as earth; our only home.
The best way to save money is to make sure you unplug all the electronics when you aren’t using them. Your Television, your toaster, your smartphone charger and every other device keep on using power which is called vampire power. So, unplug them and do not pay huge bills just because of this simple mistake. All it takes is a few seconds and you can save your hard earned money from being wasted like that.
Stop wearing branded:
Instead of helping giant brands make more money, help local companies generate more revenue so, that India has a better economy. Start buying from local brands that will cost you less and you can always wait for sales if you want to have branded clothes too. Furthermore, it is all about how you carry your clothes and style comes from within and not by wearing expensive clothes. So, save the money for unforeseen situations that sometimes demand humongous financial expenses.
Reuse and resell:
Need to buy new furniture for your home? Go on any online shopping site that offers reselling of used items. It will cost you less and you can meet the buyer and check the condition of the item before you pay for it. Similarly, you must have some extra items at your home that only occupy space and you can sell them and get money. This also applies to jewelry. I once came across a beautiful Swarovski necklace on a website and it was as shining as it was new. The woman had only worn it at few occasions and I bought it at such a cheap price. It was like a dream come true scenario for me. So, simply go ahead and make wise use of money and save more even though you earn less.
