I decided at the beginning of May, that I wanted to look for ways to save money each day this month. Finding ways to save money is a fun game when you set your mind on it!
We often say to ourselves that we want to save money, but implementing is often the hard part. Turn it into a daily challenge and you’ll find it’s easier to tackle.
A third of the way through the month, and here’s a different savings idea from each day in May. We’ll see if I can keep it going all month!
Money Saving Ideas
Switch Insurance Companies. We moved most of our insurance policies to Allstate to take advantage of cheaper rates.
Use Redbox. We tried out Redbox for the first time, saving money over Blockbuster rentals.
Cancel Services. I was using Credit Check Total for daily credit scores, but no longer need them, so we canceled the service saving the monthly fee.
Reduce Christmas Budget. I put money in an ING account each month to save up for holiday gifts. Since we let go of our nanny, it’s one less gift we’ll have to buy and it frees up some extra money in our monthly budget.
Free Magazines. One of my magazine subscriptions expired recently, so I’m shopping the list of free magazines to find a replacement.
Appeal Property Taxes. After we bought our first rental property below the assessed value, our partner filed an appeal with the assessor. Hopefully, we’ll see a lower assessment and a lower tax bill.
