Saving money can be very hard. If you feel like you need to save but don’t know where to begin, you’re not alone. Did you know that approximately sixty-nine percent of Americans have less than $1,000 in their savings? It looks like a lot of Americans need help when it comes to finding ways to save money. We’re here to tell you that saving money is possible. Here are some ways you could save up to $1,000 dollars.
Use cashback apps
Cashback apps won’t make you rich, but using these apps can add up to some serious savings. Many cashback apps give you points just for scanning your receipt or buying specific products. But, make sure you’re not getting caught up in the temptation to spend money just to get the cashback points.
Turn off the TV
It’s quite shocking just how many times people keep the TV on even when there’s no one around to watch it. Shut it off! And do make sure that everyone in your home knows to turn it off if they’re not going to watch it anymore.
Turn off the lights
It might seem minor, but turning off the lights when they are not in use can really help you save some money. So switch off the lights whenever you leave a room.
Brew your own coffee
Your daily drive-thru cup of Joe is probably costing you more than $65–120 each month. Purchase some high-quality beans and a nice travel mug. Then, make your own coffee at home.
Change your office hours
Traffic jams cost Americans a lot in gas and car wear and tear. One of the most frustrating parts of traffic is that spending hours in your car can zap your productivity level. You could save a lot more by changing your daily work schedule. If possible, ask if you could work either earlier or later to avoid traffic at peak times. By doing so, you will not be wasting fuel or your valuable time sitting in traffic.
Avoid bottled water
Water is basically free. You don’t need to buy expensive bottled water just because other people have it. Drinking tap water could help you save a lot of money.
