Save Your Green! #savingmoney St. Patrick’s Day is here and it’s got us thinking of all things green… …grass (it might actually be green soon!) …drinks and beer (especially today!) …and money (our favorite topic!) While we’re thinking of all this green, here’s a few simple ways to help you save some of yours! Cut back on dining out It all adds up! Make going out to restaurants a special occasion, not just every day for lunch or multiple suppers a week out. Pack lunches or make supper at home; not only does it save money, it’s usually healthier for you, too! Stop those expensive, bad-for-you habits We understand that some things are just a harder to cut back on than others, especially our bad habits that we may have including smoking and excessive drinking. Save some money and cut back! Shop secondhand Visiting either rummage sales or discount, second-hand apparel stores is a great way to not spend as much on your attire. It is getting to be quite the norm for great, still in great condition clothes to find their ways into these stores – and at quite a discount from what you’d pay new. Start couponing When shopping, use coupons, store fliers and emails, and special discount days to your advantage. Just don’t buy items you don’t need! Public Transportation When you can and where it’s available, take public transportation like buses. Another way to save on those high vehicle and fueling costs is to dig that old bike out of the shed or just walk to your destinations. With these simple tips that you can start today, you’ll be saving more of your green before you know it! Have a safe and happy St. Patrick’s Day from all of us at CreditSoup!
