Save Money Tips
Easiest Ways to Save Money and Strategies to Save Money - without Noticing!
Tired of the same old save money tips: stop buying Starbucks, eat out less, turn off the lights, and save money on electricity bills. I am more into to the: “SHOW ME THE MONEY,” by showing me what the save money tips will do for me.
With prices skyrocketing we need some ideas to save money and help us stay on track.
Easiest ways to save money on grocery shopping and what it will do for you:
Did you know that buying one bag of off brand cereal can save you 2.00 per week? I know that is not much, but when you find 5 other things that can save $2.00 that is a savings of $10.00 a week, or $40.00 a month or $480 a year.
Add more veggies into your stew and soups so you can get two meals out of one. How much of a savings could that add up to each month? That is about $80-120 per month.
Shred your own cheese, chop your own veggies instead of convenient bags, buy frozen veggies instead of canned (when on sale). That can save you about $40.00 per month.
Double up on recipes and freeze. This will save you from swinging by a fast food place and can save a family of 4 between $80-100.00 per month.
By having precooked ground beef and chicken (cutting into strips) can also save you from going out for a quick bite or calling for pizza. Savings of $40-100 per month.
Having Campbell soup (mushroom or chicken) on hand can save a family from going out to eat too!
Sound like chump change? It is not. Look below how these strategies to save money with just a few dollars here and there can actually secure your future!
