Tips on Saving

Every person wants to save more in their purchases. No one wants to spend his or her dollars over some commodities which are priced too high. In fact, some consumers even wait for the discounts, promotions and offers given by different shops so they can buy the things they need or want at discount prices. If you are one of these customers who are eager to serve, then make sure to follow the three ways provided below:

1. Subscribe to the newsletters of the shops you love.
The best way to be updated with the latest promotions offered by your favorite stores is to sign up for their e-newsletters. You will get notifications straight in your emails every time the said shops introduce new products to the market and sell inventories at low prices. Aside from this, you can also get free samples and items that are given to exclusive subscribers.

2. Have a clear list for your expenses.
Avoid spending too much cash by learning how to budget. It is highly recommended that you generate a list of the items you wish to purchase. This way, you can be able to track all the products you are planning to buy and see the flow of your money. For example, if you would like to get an Elco drillflex fastener and solar panel mounting hardware, then make sure that you include these items on the list!

3. Identify needs from wants.
As much as possible, the first things that you must purchase are those that are highly needed by you and your family. Stop wasting your cash on the products that you do not need. By doing such, you will be able to save a large proportion of your income. Always keep in mind that having an extra cash for future usage is a good practice.

  1. Great post! I love it when I get great deals and even get cash backs from shopping... that's why I never shop without looking for discounts first.

  2. I used to shop a lot but now that I know the value of money, I only buy things that I need.

  3. Hi Algene
    The third tip is the real deal! People sometimes get confused with their need and want in life. If you can't afford itand you won't die not having it then don't bother sending, right?


  4. Needs vs wants - this is very important in order to save more. :)

  5. I subscribed on all the stores I love! I try not to spend a lot, it's hard!!! Also identifying needs from wants.. I agree thou, great tips!

  6. Subscribing really helps us keep updated with the promo or sales date of a certain store. I already learned to identify needs from wants, it saves me a lot of money.

  7. amen to no.3 :) but for me having "forced" savings is the best way :) just like bpi save up
