Frugal Tips that you can actually use to save Money
Even though I am a cutthroat frugal when it comes to saving money but I have researched the internet to come up with more tips on cutting all useless expenses but not the one that a lot of people consider should be cut. It is not a good idea to go crazy while saving money, going crazy about saving money is a different thing though. I went through a lot of tips and charts claiming that they can help save money but the things about those tips and charts is that a normal human being seriously cannot follow them without losing his/her nerves. I have come up with my own improvised ways that can help save a lot of money without cutting any basic needs.
1- Frugal Tip for entertainment
Get rid of your cable connection and any other subscriptions unless you have them for free. You can Google “Free Redbox Rental Codes” to find a lot of free movie rental codes instead of paying for them. Exchanging movies with your friends and family can also be a great way for saving money. You can dedicate a specific event for this cause where all members can bring their movies and can exchange them with one another for the ones they haven’t seen. By implementing this technique you can save up to £325 per year.
2- Frugal Tip to save fuel
You should only make 2 trips a month at most to the town each month. Whatever you have to buy should be bought at once from the grocery store to avoid unnecessary trips. It will not only help you save a lot of money on fuel but will also stop you from buying useless stuff on your each trip to the store. You can approximately £950 per year if you make only 2 trips to the town each month.
3- Frugal Tip for buying clothes
You can make a pact with yourself that you are only going to wear used clothes this year. Make a goal that you are not going to buy any new clothes instead you will only purchase used ones. You can save up to 75% money on buying used clothes as compared to the new ones. You can save up to £900 per year just by saving this 75% money on purchasing clothes.
4- Frugal Tip for washing your clothes
A great way that a lot of people know for saving money on washing clothes is to dry them on a line instead of passing them through a dryer. Although, this technique is very effective when it comes to saving money but it cannot be implemented if you have some sort of an allergy, or you don’t have a backyard or it is the winter season. A solution for this problem is getting a drying rack. If you think you don’t have enough indoor space just like me then you can go for a wall drying rack. This tip can help you save £100 per year.
