Want To Know How I Make My Money Go Further? Read This!

This is a guest post especially for LLandLoL readers.  While I didn’t write this; I use some of these tactics myself!

For many people, including myself, stretching money is something of an art form! We all wish that we could be millionaires, spending our time jetting off to exotic locations. In the real world, most of us have to work for a living.

With the rising cost of living, it seems to be getting harder to make your money go further these days. If that sounds like a familiar situation, don’t worry because you are not alone.

Today I am going to share with you some of the weird and wonderful ways that I make my money go further. I tend to use a variety of ways, just like how a gambler doesn’t bet all their money on one horse! By the way – I’m not going to suggest betting to make some cash! Check out my amazing tips below:

I don’t buy all my groceries from one store

If you’re anything like me, you love consuming branded foods and drinks. I’ve tried store-brand items in the past, and, to me, they just don’t seem as good. The only trouble with buying branded products is they cost more.

The good news is there are many ways to get those items at cheaper prices. Perhaps the most common way to achieve that goal is to shop at several different grocery stores. They often have promotions on branded items, so you can buy in bulk and save lots of money!

 

I let service providers battle for my custom

Things like insurance, cable TV, electricity, and water can get provided from different vendors. Some people stick with the same providers for years because they feel the need to have a sense of loyalty.

Let me tell you something: there is no such thing as loyalty in the business world! As a consumer, it’s your job to get what you want for the best possible price. Each year, I review my spending on services and utilities. I then check out which companies offer the best prices. And then I switch; it’s as simple as that!

I invest some of my spare cash

I’m not someone with hundreds spare each month. But, when I do have some extra money, I like to invest it in some way. For example, I might lend some cash to people using peer-to-peer sites like Lending Club. Or I might go to the ACM Gold website and do some foreign exchange trading.

It’s always worth being savvy with your money. You’ll never know when you need access to a rainy-day fund!

 

I offer tutoring services

In my spare time, one of the ways I like to make some extra pocket money is by offering tuition services. You might not think it, but you can do this too! You could teach people about your specialist subject face-to-face or over the Internet.

In return, you get paid for your time. It’s one of the few things in life where you can make money for little outlay.


I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s post. Let me know what you decide to do!
