Money saving is important in these hard times. A lot of people spend money unnecessarily and do not realize that they can save it. You can cut down on many expenses without many changes in your lifestyle. Here are some tips on how to save money.


Expenses-Track Them

Learn to value the money you earn. Use a diary so you can keep track of how much money you spend per day and month. Keep all your electricity bills, water bills, mobile phone bills, cable charges, and all other bills. Make a note of your investments and loans. Once you write this down, analyze it so you can think of expenses you can reduce and those you can avoid completely.

Put the expenses in these categories:

  • Absolutely necessary
  • Necessary but possible to reduce
  • Unnecessary

Try to reduce the expenses from the second category and do your best to eliminate all the expenses from the third category. Continue tracking your expenses regularly so you can see how much and how wisely or carelessly you are spending.

Credit Cards

Credit cards are easy and convenient to use because you can go shopping without money, but there is an interest amount to pay so that means in the end you pay more than what the shopping was actually worth. Pay your credit card debts and do not use it any more.

Unnecessary Expenses

When you are paying for the gym and you are not really using it, it is time to quit the gym. If you want to work out you can start that at your own home. You can jog in the park. Do not buy books, visit a local library and read for free.


Often we go shopping to make ourselves feel better or simply to kill time. Shopping can become an addiction so you need to avoid it if you are trying to save money. Go shopping only when you actually need something. Make a shopping list before you go shopping and stick to the list.

Using energy

Efficient use of energy is important for saving money. Always remember to switch off the lights, the television, the air conditioning or your computer when you are not using it. Do not leave the tap open when you are brushing your teeth.


Instead of spending money and buying things when you wish, wait for discounts and special deals on certain items and services.
