Last month we started our Money Saving Tips & Tricks series with some simple ways that could make your money go further. In this blog post we’ll be adding to the list with some more great ideas, we hope you find them useful!
The aim of going green is to reduce your negative impact on the Earth, but it can also help you to save a lot of money. Some of the changes that can be made to help the environment, such as using less energy, less water, and using the car less frequently are also brilliant ways to save money.
Reconsider Your Mobile Plan
When choosing a mobile phone contract, most people choose a contract based on the handset and don’t pay much care to the minutes, texts, data and perks that are received. It’s likely that once you’ve chosen your contact you probably won’t reconsider it, but you may actually be paying for more than you need to. Work out how many minutes, texts and data you use in a month and then check your allowance to see if you’re paying more than you should be.
Cancel Your Gym Membership
If you’re one of the people who buy a gym membership in January, use it a handful of times before never returning, then you have a huge opportunity to save money. You have a choice to make: quit the gym or start using it.
Stop Playing the Lottery
The chances of winning the UK National Lottery is around 1 in 14 million, so if you’re a weekly player who thinks that one day you’ll become a millionaire then think again. Sure, some people win the lottery, but the odds are so bad that it isn’t really worth the amount you spend.
