Have a change jar. It may seem like having a piggy bank when you were a little kid, but believe it or not it will add up quickly. Then when the jar fills up you can take it to the bank and have it put into your savings account. It is as simple as that to add some extra money to your savings account.
Make a grocery list, and then take it with you when you go to the store. Having a list helps you to remember what it was you wanted to get. It will also help you to not buy things off the list. Having a grocery list helps you to cut down on the impulse purchases.
Try shopping when you are in a hurry. This will help you to save money because you will not have the time to look at other things and spend more money. This is a good way to help keep yourself from making impulse purchases because you simply will not have time to look around.
Make your own coffee and take it with you. Buying a cup of coffee at a coffee shop every day adds up much quicker than you would think. Most of us spend the money at a coffee shop everyday without thinking about it and what else we could do with this money.
Anything that you are able to you should do on your own. Do it yourself projects not only save you money but it can be very rewarding to say that you did it yourself. You can get someone to help you; this can be great bonding time. Not to mention you will feel great accomplishment when doing something yourself. There are many websites, books, and magazines that you can refer to for help if you need it.
Do not go out to lunch during the week. This adds up so fast and often times the food is much worse for you than what you would bring from home. Instead try making your own lunch and bringing it to work with you every day, you may be surprised how much you actually save every week by doing this.
There is no reason that you cannot save money in your everyday life. Saving money can be so simple. Get together with your friends and think of other ways that you can save money on a daily basis. Once you see how much you save you will be glad you did it.
