Top 10 Money Saving Tips and Tricks from Comwave
We are living in a world of rising expenses and although saving money may seem like a daunting task, it’s not as complicated as you might think. In fact, it can actually be easy to save a little – or a lot! Check out Comwave’s tips & tricks below to help keep your hard-earned cash in your pocket!
1. Create a budget
Include all your fixed and variable expenses, don’t forget to include savings into the plan as well. You can find free budget trackers online to help you keep track of all your expenses.
2. Utilize off-peak hours
Using your appliances during peak hours can be costly. Need to do your laundry? Plan to do it after peak hours on the weekend or at night to help save money.
3. Pack a lunch
Most lunches cost approximately $10. Try packing your lunch every day and you can save approximately $50 a week or $200 a month!
4. Switch phone providers
While most big name companies offer residential phone lines at $35-$40 per month, Comwave starts from only $9.95 and our Long Distance plans start at $5 per month.
5. Skip expensive coffee shops
You may not realize that your daily latte is costing you about $1,000 a year. Instead of purchasing it on your way to work, buy a great travel mug and bring it from home.
6. Leave your plastic at home
This can take some planning but if you leave both your debit and credit card at home, you will be less likely to make impulse purchases.
7. Avoid unexpected data charges
The big-three Internet companies may have some hidden fees with your data plans. Comwave offers Unlimited Data Plans starting at $40 per month with no hidden fees, so you can watch all the shows you want without worrying about your wallet.
8. Make a grocery list
Always make a grocery list and stick to it! Having a list in front of you will reduce the chance of last minute impulse purchases. Try and shop for items to cook at home, rather than the pricey ready-made selection.
9. Set up automatic savings
Set up an automatic withdrawal from your chequing account and have it deposited into your savings account every month. If the money isn’t easily accessible, you will be less likely to spend it.
10. Free entertainment
Going out can be expensive but you want to have a life! During the summer, you can head to the beach, pack a picnic and take in free concerts at your local park. Winters are mostly spent inside so consider hosting your friends for a game night, hosting a movie marathon at home or heading outside to go tobogganing.
