Just as you do, there are many other people who have been given some thought on how they are able to cut their expenses and save some cash. A quick online search will provide you with plenty of money saving tips, but here we have provided you with 5 factors you need to consider.

  1. Shop Online

You can save a ton of money by shopping online, and for more reasons than you may initially consider. For example, if you want to do your grocery shopping online it can stop you picking up all of those impulse buys that you could otherwise live without. Consider this, how many times do you buy unneeded items simply because they are right there in front of you. It might seem like you are buying at a discount, but spending something will always cost you more money than not spending anything. A great online shopping site is Coupon Sherpa, you can find plenty of great deals online. The same can be said for Groupon as well.

  1. Join a Cashback Shopping website

Another method of saving money is by taking your online shopping a step further and using a cashback site. There are a lot more of these sites popping up these days because retailers often incentivize them to seller their products and services. The cashback site will then take their profits from the retailer and essentially pass you back a portion of it. A pretty simple and effective method for online shoppers.

  1. Stop Going to the Car Wash

When the spring and summer months hit it’s amazing how many people flock to the local car washes. Some will opt to hit the coin vending washes rather than the more expensive drive through washes. However, you should wash your car the old fashioned way, with a hose, bucket of water, and a sponge! Simple tasks that you can do around the house for free should always be optimized for saving money.

  1. Pack a Lunch

Spending money to buy lunch everyday is much easier, and quicker, than packing your own…but it certainly is much more costly as well. Spending time is much cheaper than spending money. Sure, you have to buy the stuff at the grocery store and wake up an extra 10 minutes earlier in the morning to pack the lunch, but in the long run your finances will thank you for it.

  1. Shop Around for your Insurance Needs

The internet makes shopping so much easier, and that includes shopping for and saving money on your insurance needs. It doesn’t matter if you need life, health, or car insurance. Simply go online and input some superficial data, and within 10 minutes you can have a dozen insurance companies competing for your business.

      Honestly Free Shipping is a make or break deal for me for shopping online!! I won’t usually buy anything unless they offer it. Added discounts are good too!
