With my holiday vastly approaching I’m starting to realise the importance of saving. I’ve never been bad at saving to be honest, I’d say I’m fairly good at it but now and again I do have the tendency to splurge out on things that I really don’t need! Now I know for one I cannot be the only one, I mean when you see something on sale, or you see these two for one offers how can you resist?! But today is the day where hopefully all this can come to an end and with me and my ‘thrifty’ saving tips we can all save some money because its’ never too late to save for a rainy day!
Saving Tip Number 1 - You want it, but do you REALLY need it?
There is a big difference between wanting something but you really have to ask yourself, do I realllllyyyy need this? 9 times of of 10 the answer is no, and if the answer is no then even though it may pain me I just pop the item back knowing that I’ve saved myself a few pennies! #HowSassy
Saving Tip Number 2 – Pot of dreams
I love these little money pots, they are bit on the pricey side but I think by it being pricey it makes you more reluctant to smash it open until you no there’s quite a bit of money inside.
Saving Tip Number 3- Depop!If your looking for a new outfit, or something new rather than buying something, have a look at depop! You can sell items, buy items or even do swaps. Can’t say fairer than that
Saving Tip Number 4- Savings account
The good old savings account, I have one of these myself and every pay day I take out between £50 -£100 of my wages and place it into my savings account! By taking money out of your wages you automatically set yourself a budget for the rest of the month. This is actually one of my easiest ways of savings and for me my most effective one!
