Were those of your mothers who bought you school uniforms three sizes bigger because “they last longer”? Did you inherit the clothes of your older brothers without having the opportunity to release anything? Well, these resources, although we did not like them, were a most useful way of saving .
In Good Finance , a leading company in the microcredit sector in Spain , we know that there is only one mother, but we still want to give you five tips to become good savers. So, when I give you to go out to dinner at the end of the month, you’ll think of us.
Be imaginative in the kitchen
Even the half lemon that is always in a corner can get into a dish. Take advantage of everything that is about or is about to spoil and become a chef.
Do not throw food . Look at the expiration dates of the products and check that you do not miss fresh food. If you have dinner left over, you can take advantage of it to take the tupper to the office: not only will you save on food, but you will avoid having to cook again or spend money in a store or restaurant.
Close the water when you lather
We already know that it is very well under running water, but cutting it when we do not need it will significantly reduce our bill . In addition, it will make us more responsible with the environment . So, we all win.
Make the reforms yourself . Obviously, we refer to small DIY tasks such as painting the walls or fixing a switch. For larger works, hire a specialist, but, whenever possible, try to delay it until your economy is better.
Take advantage of discounts
If it’s nothing urgent, use the seasonal discounts to buy what you need; so you can have what you need but at a lower price. Although, be careful !: when you go, be very clear about what you should buy, because then the bargains tempt us and it ends up being worse.
If in spite of everything you also need some other financial help , you can count on us. In Good Finance we grant credits of up to € 300 at the moment. Do you want more information?
