  1. Hey Laurie,

    I like how you break up these ways to save money into different subcategories. It really shows that you can save money in every aspect of your life!

    My favorite way to save money is to automate my paychecks. As soon as I get paid, a portion is put into a savings account.

    Thanks!

  2. These are nice step by step descriptions. Each and every point gives a different idea. Thanks for sharing such a nice article.

    • Your welcome! I’m glad you find it to be helpful.

  3. Modern marketing can make anyone purchase more. If you have been told that your salary will be paid soon, do not throw money around before receiving it. Do not take debts or loans. All received finances should be properly distributed. For example, one part of the earnings will go to pay utility bills because they are worth paying on time.
    Many people are used to paying for all their purchases with the help of various gadgets and devices, which often has negative consequences. By paying all bills using the same bank card, we do not notice the amount of money spent. It is necessary to abandon it, try to calculate and plan each of its expenses. At first it can be hard, but over time you get used to it.
    If you are planning to buy a thing that you have long wanted, think about whether you will become happier after the purchase. Try to understand yourself and make the right decision. If you accept the answer as “no”, then deep down you really do not want to buy this thing thereby reducing the level of internal alarm.

    • I agree that current marketing trends target us and make us want to buy more. You are right that you should not spend money before you have it and pay the necessary bills first. Thanks for your comments!

  4. I’ve recently come across apps that round up purchases and put the difference in an account. For example, you bought something for $157. The app would round it up to $160 and put the $3 difference into an account. So, that’s a good way to save too.

    • Yes it is. There are several apps out there that will do that for you. It’s a great way to save without really feeling it. A few dollars here and there is less noticeable to your wallet, but can add up significantly over time. 🙂

  5. I am very happy to have come across your website. As a rule, I usually don’t find many with the straight up talk I’ve found here. I just retired this year from a life of being a waitress and a bartender as well as a few factory jobs along the way. Needless to say, my retirement check is not big enough to live on, especially if I was to try it on my own. So, I’ve been rolling ideas aimlessly around in my head to come up with ways for making a little more. Well, I just want say I’m so inspired now and totally excited to use your website as a tool and for guidance in my endeavors to make some supplemental cash. This is awesome and I’m happy to be a subscriber.

    • That’s great, Cindy! I hope you are able to use some of the information we have posted on this site to grow your retirement income. 🙂
