Being an adult is hard, managing your money as an adult is harder. Sometimes life gets the best of us and we find ourselves living off of grilled cheese and canned soup for a while. If you’ve ever taken a good look at your expenses, you may realize you’re spending habits may come as a surprise. You spend HOW MUCH ON COFFEE? The good news is that there are a lot of great ways to save money that you don’t have to sacrifice much for.
Read on for our top money saving tips:
1. Opt for drugstore beauty products
There are a lot of great beauty products you can get for under $15. Buying some less-expensive makeup will clear up some room in your bank account for other expenses. It’s easy to be lured into a cosmetic store, and walk out with something you don’t really need. By getting things you want to try, or something you think you might only wear once at a lower price will save you more in the long run. That way, when you want to treat yourself to a luxury beauty item it will be special. Maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s Maybelline!
2. Cut the cord and stream
You never really realize how expensive cable is until you have to pay for it yourself. Luckily it’s 2015, which means there are unlimited programs you can stream online from websites that cost under $10 a month. That will save you a lot of money, plus you don’t have to worry about missing anything on-air, because it will live forever online! #NetflixandChill
3. Share rides and save
Ride share programs are everywhere, and will save you a lot of money. If you’re going somewhere with a group of people, split the cost to make it more affordable. You could also take public transportation, or walk to places close enough as an alternative to renting, or using a car. You’ll also be helping the environment, which is also a big bonus. We love UberX because it is much cheaper than a regular taxi cab and the drivers are typically very kind and courteous.
4. Save on your cell with Koodo
Cell phones, and data plans can get expensive fast. Koodo’s tab plans offer great phones at great deals that are totally customizable to your preferences. Koodo’s plans are flexible, affordable and Canada-wide, and you won’t be locked into a multi-year contract with a shattered phone ever again. Once you pay off your phone with your tab, your monthly bill will go down! If you want a new phone, simply pay off the remainder of your tab and start fresh! Who doesn’t love that?
