Top 7 Ways To  Save Money 

When inflation rears its ugly head, how can you think about bills while covering life’s daily costs? Saving money becomes a pipe dream for many when the cost of living rises.

Thankfully there are ways you can save and create a new budget that will fit surging prices and allow you to save money. Let’s dive into the top 7 ways to save money, even when prices are surging with inflation.

Do you know what subscriptions you have and how much they cost monthly? Do you need them all? Surprisingly, many people cannot answer these questions. These “low-priced” programs get away with your money. Who will notice $10 a month that they aren’t using? Now, you will!

1. Check Your Subscriptions

2. Make A List Before You Go Shopping

The old saying is, “Never go food shopping hungry.” That is very true, but if you make a list before you go into any store, you are more likely to get the things you need rather than picking up random stuff you see in the store that you don’t need.

Eating out is easy, but it is often costly. Food is expensive enough at the grocery store these days. But in addition to the rising cost of food, is the associated rising cost of eating out at restaurants and restaurant take-out. When you make your shopping list, plan your meals for the week as well. This way, you won’t give in to the temptation of ordering a pizza instead of eating a prepped meal you planned that is within the safety of your budget.

3. Plan Ahead and Eat at Home

Online shopping can be a great way to keep to your budget because you are not walking around a store finding things you like that are off your shopping list. Limiting yourself to shopping online one day a week or a month, depending on your budget, will help keep you on track.

4. Give Yourself An Online Shopping Day with a Budget

Look at what you pay for monthly services, such as your phone and cable bills. You can sign up for promotions with your current company or if you change companies. Additionally, always look for sales.

5. Make Sure You Have the Lowest Monthly Service Prices

You’ll find the best prices and cashback shopping options with apps like Honey and Rakuten. You can also go “old school” and cut paper coupons from newspapers and flyers. Many stores have coupons and discounts you can take advantage of. Inflation causes costs to rise so much that any discount you find will help you save money.

6. Try Couponing
