Use These Cheap Tips Every Day and You Can Reduce Your Debt

It is essential to learn a few cheap tips to help you control your spending habits. Less spending means more savings and lesser debts.  Thus, it is crucial to incorporate a few tricks in your daily routine.

First, the most important of all these cheap tips is to realize that most things people spend on are not really needed.  So, it is crucial to identify wants from needs. If you are having trouble identifying your wants from your needs, ask yourself how often will you use it?  Will there be grave consequences if you do not buy it? The answers to these questions will give you perspective on the necessity of the product you are planning to buy.

Second, find out if there is a cheaper alternative.  This is one of the most disregarded cheap tips because of the planning and research it entails.  Remember, the best buys are not always the best brands.  Read consumer reviews and find out the products that are the best value for money.

Third, don’t buy just because it is 50% less.  Even though it is 50% less, if you won’t be using the item, you really are not saving money; you are wasting money.

Fourth, avoid charging purchases to your credit card.  The credit card provides the facility of immediate purchase. So, it can make a big difference to leave the credit card at home and bring just enough cash to purchase what you need.

Fifth, use your own bank when withdrawing from ATM’s.  The service charge may be just a few dollars but when accumulated, they can add up to hundreds of dollars.

These are just a few cheap tips you can use to help spend less.  It can be daunting at first but with practice, it becomes easier.  It helps to remember all the savings you can get from these tricks.  It only takes a little appreciation of delayed gratification to make this system work for you.

  1. I know a way to save more on toilet paper than any coupon or special. This covers all the bases = saves you money, helps the environment, helps your health, makes you feel better, it’s so easy to do and it costs less than $50.00; Save money and the Earth and be clean at the same time! Add Bathroom Bidet Sprayers to all your bathrooms. I think Dr. Oz on Oprah said it best: “if you had pee or poop on your hand, you wouldn’t wipe it off with paper, would you? You’d wash it off” Available at bathroomsprayers dot com, with these you won’t even need toilet paper any more, just a towel to dry off! Don’t worry, you can still leave some out for guests and can even make it the soft stuff without feeling guilty. It’s cheap and can be installed without a plumber; and runs off the same water line to your toilet. You’ll probably pay for it in a few months of toilet paper savings. As for water use a drought is always a concern and must be dealt with prudently but remember the water use of industrial users far exceeds the water use of household users and in the case of toilet paper manufacture it is huge. The pollution and significant power use from that manufacturing process also contributes to global warming so switching to a hand bidet sprayer and lowering your toilet paper use is very green in multiple ways.
