It is not always easy to cut down your costs and save money when you have routines that you have had for years, perhaps since you were a child. However, these small routines are sometimes where you will find the easiest ways to cut down on your spending and save money. This month I have done 5 things that has cut down my costs significantly.
3 things I have done to cut down my costs and save money over 200 dollar this month!
- I have biked everywhere. I normally bike every now and then but this month I have made a point of bringing the bike with me all the time. Great exercise!!!
- Mr Viking and I have dutifully implemented the One Simle Purchase Rule
- White month! As the Viking I am, I tend to drink alcohol every now and then, and Mr Viking and I very much enjoy a glass of red after a long day of work. Cut off alcohol completely this month and noticed two things: a) I am saving more money than I thought! A good bottle of wine pays up to ca 20 USD so lets say we have saved at least 40 bucks on this. b) My skin looks great! I want to continue with this.
These are things that has made me save in total more than 200 USD.
In one year this is adding up to 2400 dollars. Insane. Tips: Write down right now what you would do if you were given 2400 dollars out of the blue right now. Keep this as a motivational note.
It is not on par with MrMoneyMustache but everyone has to start somewhere and these are definitely three tips that anyone can follow. If you try it one single month, you will still save a lot of money.
