Top Tips for Making your Money Go Further
In this day and age, it’s not just sensible but absolutely crucial to keep track of your spending habits and figure out where you can improve your finances in order to enjoy a better future. It’s amazing, just how easily money can be flittered away without even realising and, while sometimes, it’s on the frivolous luxuries we all love, much of the time, it’s because we’re not careful enough with our day-to-day spending. By learning how to make our money go further on the mundane things, we can ensure that there’s more leftover to spend on the nicer things on life. Here are some top tips on how to do so.
Consider Long Term Investments
It may mean that you need to find a little funding, or to take advantage of government initiatives, but by taking a look at your home and considering long term investments, you could save money in the long run. Replace your energy (and money) sapping boiler with one of the new, British Gas Baxi boilers or grab a quote on double glazing windows throughout your home – whatever you choose, by looking at the bigger picture, you may see just how much you could save on your utilities over time. Take a look online for Baxi boiler information and other home improvement tips to help you on your way.
Compare the Market
Whether it’s your car insurance, home insurance or even what energy provider you’re using, switching providers and comparing quotes can save you heaps. Don’t believe for one second that the renewal quote that lands on your doormat is the cheapest quote available, because it probably isn’t. Plus, with the third party comparison sites you can find online, comparing providers is a doddle!
Grocery Shop Online
We all know how tempting it is, perusing the aisles of a supermarket and dropping things into your trolley that you don’t need. Consider doing your grocery shopping online and you’ll be more likely to stick to your list meaning you won’t be spending as much money on cupboard hogging goods that you didn’t need in the first place.
Jumping in the car to nip to the shop or to do the school run may sound like the easy option but, by doing so, you’re wasting petrol that you don’t need to waste and also having a negative impact on the environment. Walking short distances, or car sharing where you can, can save you a huge amount on transport costs as well as being good for the environment and your health!
By making small changes, you will be able to free up some of your hard-earned cash to save for a rainy day slush fund while also doing your bit for the world in which we live.
