Tips to Enjoy Saving Money!

tips to save money

Find your best way to enjoy saving the pennies!

Whether you’re saving for a vacation of a lifetime, the future, an emergency fund, or simply because the holidays took a little more out of our pockets that we liked, saving money is a common goal during the month of January.

Even though it’s not the most fun or glamorous way to live, there are ways to have fun save money, feel empowered, and enjoy life!

  • Use apps: Perhaps you’re a person who relies on To-Do lists, or you need to be reminded. Since most of us are chained to our phones these days, use this to your advantage. Set up reminders to transfer money into your savings account, or create a monthly To-Do list so that you can check it off your list each month and never forget!
  • Determine the magic number: Instead of saving “for a trip” (which basically means a limitless amount!) pick a dollar amount and save to reach that goal! When people don’t have a desired number, they can quickly become disheartened and dip into their funds often.
  • Strategically stock up on necessary goods: If you like shopping too much, train yourself to not spend too much! Do so by stocking up on essentials so the chances of spending (and overspending) are eliminated! Purchase olive oil, Brita filters, and contact lenses so that you’re prepped and ready for the future! In addition, it limits the impulse buy!
