Everyone wants the secrets to saving money. I guess it’s your lucky day because today I am going to share with you the top 5 ways to save.

1.) Stop spending money on things you don’t need.

The first and most important thing to do is to stop spending!! You know you don’t need those new shoes, jewelry, and especially that new pristine BMW. Hey, you want to look good and impress some people, fine? Where are those people going to be when it matters? 

2.) Instead of going out stay in 

Get some beers, cook some food, or even order out. Have some friends over and have some fun. You’ll end up having more and spending less.

3.) Name brand alternatives 

It used to be that name brands were the way to go because of premium ingredients and premium quality, but as time has gone by alternative brands have come up and offered comparable products for bargain prices. 

4.) Shop around 

Unless you need something right that second, take some time and shop around. If your reading this, it means you’re are on some type of portable device. Whether that’s a phone, tablet, or computer. Use whatever method of your choice to check out what stores have a better deal on what you need. 

5.) Groupon or other coupons

Oh, wait you’re too good for coupons? Are you worried about other people’s opinions? If that’s the case, I don’t know what to tell you. If you’re really in a pinch. You gotta do what you gotta do. Even if you’re not, it’s still an excellent way to save some money and spend it on something else. 

Saving money does not have to be complicated, but it seems like every day we have that voice that tells us to buy. Knowing well that we don’t have the money. It’s always the case where we say, “I’ll figure it out.” Then payment time comes around, and we act like we can’t remember the purchase.  So, remember these wise words, “If you don’t need it. Don’t buy it.”
