Saving money is not as exhausting as it is made out to be. Sometimes it is the little change in lifestyle that can help the most. Here are 5 easy money-saving techniques that you can start today:
1. Collect change. Its easy, its smart, its practically free money. A few months worth of change can add up to big bucks. I like to keep one jar in the laundry room, to empty jingling pockets, but the kitchen and bedrooms are good places too.
2. Avoid impulse purchases Using the 30 Day Rule, consider a purchase for 30 days, if you still want it after that time then it is worth the cost. Or, if you are pressed for time, the 10 Second Rule often works just as well, look at it for 10 seconds and evaluate the price and its usefulness. Decide for yourself if it is worth the money.
