Sacrifice a Little and Save Money Fast

We live in a world where we can save money fast and still have anything we want with very little capital investment. That is, we don’t have to spend a great deal to pay for the essentials and then some. With so much abundance it is easy to cut back quickly and pile up the savings.

Here’s How to Save Money Fast

Start by evaluating your living situation from beginning-to-end. This includes:

• Mortgage/Rent

• Food expenses

• Gas expenditure

• Bills (credit, utilities, gym, etc.)

• Extracurricular activities (including going out, buying alcohol, shopping, vacations, etc.)

Let’s take a look at how to save money fast on your rent or the mortgage. Start by contacting your lender and asking about the lowest rates available. Inquire about refinancing. A minuscule interest rate reduction saves you a little on the monthly payment and a lot over the life of the loan.

Maybe you can’t refinance, what about renting out a room or a basement? Renting space in your home is a smart move that can put hundreds in your pocket. 

Renters have several options. Start by inquiring about lowering the rent. A landlord may opt to give you a small break rather than lose a consistent source of income. If this isn’t feasible, look around for a better deal. There just might be a good way to save money fast out there. Renters may also be able to sublet or bring in a roommate to save money each month.

Save Money Fast on Day-to-Day Expenses

Buying food too often can add up. To reduce your grocery bills by $50, $100, $150 or more, buy bulk, plan your meals for the week and keep your diet simple. Also, cook your meals rather than buying prepackaged foods.

Gas is an unavoidable expense for most of us. However, eliminating short trips by planning ahead, choosing the cheapest gas source and using a bike or walking whenever possible will all reduce this bill.

Extracurricular activities are one of the most immediate money-saving opportunities. Whether you are fond of going out all weekend and partying, or if you think of dinner and a movie as “getting wild,” this applies to you. Here are the keys. Drink less, choose alternate (read: less expensive) destinations and avoid “money pits” such as expensive restaurants and bars.

For mellower folk, sneak snacks into movies and eat at home before the show, or find an inexpensive dive with character. The reverse works as well: Eat out and stay in for a movie. You get the idea. Take a good look at your everyday life and you are sure to find many ways to save money fast!
