Saving money can be hard if not done correctly!
Here are 5 easy tips for families trying to save money
Buy generic brands!
Swap big labelled products for store/generic brands and watch the shopping trips become a lot cheaper! Products such as washing up liquid, cereal and soft drinks are all great examples of items that can be bought in shop/generic formats.
Same product. Different name. Cheaper price.
Buy in bulk!
Buying in bulk can be a great way to save money! The more you buy, the longer it will last.
Non-perishable goods such as toiletries and cereal are great examples of items that can be purchased in bulk and won’t go bad or expire.
Less trips to the shops = less money spent.
Make money with online surveys!
Increase your financial inflow with online surveys!
Online surveys are a quick and easy way to make some additional cash. Companies such as Swagbucks will pay up to £20 for surveys and require very little time to complete!
Create your own garden
Gardening doesn’t just have to be a weekend hobby but can be used as an investment if done correctly!
Tomatoes, Beans and Cucumbers are all great examples of vegetables that can all be grown in the back of your garden! This will not only give you a great sense of satisfaction but will also help to reduce your shopping bill.
Record your expenses!
The most important step on the journey to saving money is figuring out how much money comes into your bank each month, and how much is spent on expenses!
You can then work out how much money you have to spend each month, and then plan accordingly on expenses to cut down on!
