Money is hard to save, especially when there are so many good things you can buy with the money you’ve earned. Money is very valuable, but it is very easy to take advantage of the things you can do with it. There are many ways to save your money, but you have to be willing to save it. Money won’t save itself.

If you want to save money, here are some tips:

  • Try the 30 day saving rule
    • When you feel the urge to buy something whether it’s clothes, shoes, or food, stop. Put the item down and go home. Write the item, the price, and the date you went on a piece of paper and put this piece of paper somewhere important where you will see it everyday. After thirty days, if you still want that item, consider purchasing it.
  • Don’t buy things that you don’t need
    • If the item or items you want aren’t important and you don’t need them, don’t buy them. Just think about what you are going to use it for, but if it’s not important, don’t buy it. This will help you save money.
  • Start a savings account
    • Starting a savings account will help you a lot. Putting money into your savings account will help you save and not spend your money. When your money is in your savings account, you can’t just swipe a card or give over your cash. It is in an account and you can’t get it out without going to the bank.
  • Restrict online shopping
    • Take all your shopping apps off your phone. Also, if you can take your card information off of your apps and websites, it can help you stop spending money. If your cards aren’t connected to your apps and websites, you will not want to get your card out and type all the information in and that can help you save money.
  • Put money aside everyday
    • If you put your money aside in a jar, a piggy bank, or anything that can keep your money safe, it can help you save up money fast. Just make sure you don’t take money out of the jar or anything.
  • Pick a limit to spend
    • If you pick a time period, let’s say a week, choose how much money to spend in that week and try not to go over the limit.

Saving money can be really hard, but all of these tips can help anyone save money. As long as you stick to a goal or stick to one of these helpful tips, you can start saving money fast. Hopefully these points help you if you are trying to save money.
