They say the bad times come, I personally think it is time for cool heads and work as much as possible and a little more (if you have your own business …) and think seriously about saving money. Below some thoughts on savings.
If you do not go to shop you’re not going to spend money, it’s that simple. Obviously if you need something from the store, go ahead and buy it, but do not go out for shopping. Shopping has become a favorite pastime in many countries and we are already talking about other areas that need to purchase services and products that we really need.
Live According to your Limits
ie only buy what you can afford, avoid debt and always have something saved for a rainy day. Live within your own limits, suggests that waiting until you have the money to buy something.
Watch what you have
Wash your teeth every day is an example how to care for your body and helps avoid paying thousands of dollors to the dentist. Extending this principle to other possessions can help you save money. Hand wash some clothes, so do not deteriorate as fast for example.
Use to Wear
We threw a lot of clothes, too … and many of these items are probably in perfect condition. The same applies to appliances. Are you simply updating or duplicating equipment last year or are you really using it until you have no more to give? Imagine how much you would save money if you decide to use things up 20%.
Do it yourself
Can you fix your car? Make a cake? To cut the hair of your family?
Provides for your needs
If you take the time to do your shopping you can save much money. If you see that soon you will have to change a wheel of the car, suddenly you’re more aware of all sales of wheels that are in your surroundings. Anticipating needs also avoid impulse purchases. The requirements extend to include what you want to buy impulsively.
Buy for Less
There are several ways to find bargain prices. Mail order, chain of shops selling goods at a discount. Call to stores and compare price on phone. Bargain, ask about discounts for items that are less-than-perfect.
