Ways to Save Money Fast

In this article we propose 5 ways to save money.

Is the rising cost of living impacting you and your family? Are you looking for ways to save money fast? Below we present our top 5 ways to save money fast

1. Shop around for a credit card with low or no fees.

Credit cards typically have very high interest rates. If you use your credit card wisely, it can be a great financial tool. However, if you don’t pay the balance in full each month, it can become a very expensive tool.

Often banks and other financial institutions will have special offers for transferring your balance. One I saw recently was zero percent for 6 months. Make the move and get that balance down!

2. Reduce your electricity bill

We all know that turning off lights when not in use, using economy modes on appliances and keeping showers short saves electricity and cost. However, did you know that leaving electronic devices on standby mode can add 10% to your bill. Try turning everything off at the wall!

3. Save on your phone bills

Shop around for good deals. Telecommunications costs fluctuate and are steadily declining. Shop around and find a plan that matches your usage patterns or change your usage altogether.

4. Share a ride

Save on fuel and vehicle maintenance costs by sharing your ride to work. Also consider how many cars you really need in the family? Could you manage with one less?

5. Insurance

Home and vehicle insurance costs can vary dramatically from one provider to the next. It pays to check the latest prices. So when you get your next renewal notice, shop around. You might be surprised at the difference!

I hope that you have found some of these ways to save money useful.
