Today's blog is about how to save money like an ultimate cheapster! I am an ultimate cheapster! I find solace in travelling and enjoying places at a less price. Every college going and teenager has this dream of travelling with less budget, unlike the rich lads!
How to save money then? Here's 5 ways in which you can save money.
1. WHY EAT OUT WHEN YOU CAN EAT AT HOME!?
Often we end up eating at a restaurant or cafe even if we are at home or hostel. This is where you loose your money! Try not to eat outside at weekends. Making food at home or inside hostel helps you save money or at least cuts up your expenses into half!
2. UNNECESSARY SHOPPING?
This has been the ultimate reason of not being able to save money. We end up buying clothes or unnecessary stuffs while shopping. How can we reduce it!?
- Make up a list of things you need to buy. Calculate the approx amount you will be needing. Buy only the things which are important and are written in the list.
- Delete all the online shopping apps. They are sooooo tempting because of all the sale that goes on every month or every season. We end up buying things out of excitement. I myself was a crazy online buyer.
- Try not to buy unnecessary clothing! It's a very hard thing you see.. But but.. It's the biggest saving I swear. Not all the clothes trending are needed by you or are gonna be useful. Buy only those clothes that are useful.
3. COINS? I MEAN.. LITERAL COINS?
Usually we Indians have these a lot of chillars or change you can say, we have in our house everywhere. Inside the cupboard, inside our pen stand, below the mattresses and where not?.... Collect them! This is gonna help you up in savings.
"Tiny droplets make up a sea!". Collect these coins and make a separate box for them. When the box gets filled, go to a near by shop and get currency notes of the same amount in exchange of them. Easy?
4. TRAVEL LOCAL.
If you don't travel through locals your travel can we a lot expensive. The local vehicles are cheapest ways to travel along different places. May it be buses, sharing taxis, auto rickshaws etc. They take you to several kms in under 50-100 rs (INR).
5. CARRYING YOUR OWN SUPPLIES.
In my previous blog of " How to go sustainable while travelling? " I suggested water bottles and tiffing boxes. These ways are not just sustainable but are cheap and Hygenic. You'll end up saving a lot if you don't buy packaged drinking water and packaged food.
These are some literal ways to save money.
I'll be coming over with a lot more. Stay tuned!
