10 Tips to Save Money A Little Differently- Oops I Have A Second List Too!

This is the second list of the article, which was published yesterday. Let’s see what’s more in store for you to save in the second quarter of this year.

1. Cancel The Gym Membership

In this busy life, you hardly get time to join the gym session so it is better to skip the gym membership if you do not go. As it is costing $300 a year, save that by talking a jog around the park or taking a run or cycling.

2.       Have A Spa At Home

Pamper yourself at home instead of heading towards a spa. If you go to a parlor then you have to spend at least $140 for a single visit. Try to make homemade masks out of oats and honey. Be smart and make your home turn into a self-spa (turn on the soft music, glow a dim light, spread some aromas) and save $600 a year.

3.       Pizza Delivery: Not Required

You can ditch the delivery of the pizza as they are going to put an additional surcharge. Better, save the money by cooking up a frozen one. You can save at least $15 every time if you pre-heat the oven.

4.       Home-Based Cleaning Products

Why you need to invest money in those expensive house-cleaning items? Those attractive packaging and pretty smelling things can convince you. Well, get rid of them and use rubbing alcohol as the common sanitizer in comparison to your branded counterparts.

5.       Have The Nail Salon At Your Home

Skip having manicures and pedicures in every two weeks to pamper yourself. Get them done at home instead. If it’s necessary then go at least once in a month. You can save at least $600 with the use of it.

6.       Reconsider The Cell Phone Plans

Check out on which cell phone you have tagged yourself. Check out do you need every facility for which you pay. Whack down the unnecessary offers and cut off at least $20 on your mobile bills making it a savings of $240 at the end of the year.
