25 Ways To Save Money On A Day-To-Day Basis

  1. Carry a bottle of water with you when you go out, so you are less likely to buy an expensive drink.
  2. Try to avoid bulk buying food that is perishable, even if it is on sale. The most expensive food you buy is the food you throw out.
  3. Go vegetarian for a few days a week to save money on meal costs.
  4. Eat leftovers for lunch instead of buying more food.
  5. Switch to energy efficient light bulbs.
  6. Carry less money in your purse while you’re out and about – and try to leave your credit card at home if you aren’t planning on shopping.
  7. Throw a swap party with your friends. You can swap clothes, household items, vouchers – anything you can think of!
  8. Need something new? Consider buying a second hand version to save money.
  9. Don’t watch much TV? Consider getting rid of your TV license and replacing it with Netflix or Hulu.
  10. Only do full loads of laundry.
  11. Check your cell phone plan to see if you could move to a cheaper plan with less offers.
  12. Bike to your destination, instead of driving or getting the bus.
  13. Wash your car at home, instead of paying someone else to do it.
  14. Need to get a taxi? Make sure it’s an Uber as they are often more cost effective.
  15. Replace expensive cosmetic products with a drugstore brand.
  16. Work out at home or the park, instead of the gym to save money on membership fees. There are lots of Youtube tutorials to make sure you are still doing quality exercises.
  17. Stop collecting items, and start selling.
  18. Spend the night at home with your friends, instead of going out. You can still eat great food and drink delicious drinks!
  19. Repair old clothing instead of throwing it away and replacing it.
  20. Make four times as much stew or casserole when you are cooking. Freeze the extra so that you can have leftovers for lunch at work. This also means you have delicious meals ready at home, so you’re less likely to order take out.
  21. Stop using credit cards entirely.
  22. Do a price comparison for your local grocery stores to make sure you get the best deal.
  23. Cancel all of your membership cards that you don’t use.
  24. Wash your hands regularly. Being ill is expensive!
  25. De-clutter your home and sell the items that you don’t need.

    Point 9 is easy. Thanks to the internet and video games I have no time to watch TV.
