6 Best Ways to Save Money in this Recession

Do you ever feel like it’s impossible to find ways to save money, no matter how hard you try? Despite your best efforts to cut expenses, something always unexpectedly arises. Life gets in the way—the car needs new tires, the teenager needs braces, the house needs a new roof—and just like that, saving money takes a back seat. Sound familiar?

In actuality, nothing has to magically fall into place for you to begin saving money. Warning: You will never see it if you wait for the “perfect time” to arrive. Now is the ideal moment to begin saving.

The following are best ways to save money

 1. Keep track of your costs

The first step in saving money is to calculate your current spending. Keep a record of every penny you spend, including normal monthly payments as well as purchases for groceries, coffee, and other home items. Using a pen and paper, a straightforward spreadsheet, a free online expenditure tracker, or an app, record your expenses as is most convenient for you. Once you have your data, group the figures into categories like mortgage, petrol, and food and total each sum. Make sure you’ve included everything by consulting your bank and credit card statements.

2. Plan your savings

Imagining what you are saving towards is one of the finest methods to save money. Set saving goals and a deadline if you need some inspiration to start saving. Want to put 20% down on a home purchase in three years? Now that you’ve set a goal, you know how much money you’ll need to set aside each month to reach it.

3. Get Rid of Your Debt

Start with the debt if you’re trying to save money through budgeting but are still heavily indebted. Not persuaded? You can readily determine this by adding up how much money you spend each month on debt repayment. When you are no longer required to pay interest on your debt, you can easily put that money into savings. You have a few options for debt consolidation to improve your ability to pay it off, including a personal line of credit.

4. Spend money on your needs not want

Between the two word need and want lies a very big difference that needs to be carefully noticed. Needs are those urgent things that can’t really wait while want are things that doesn’t really matter but you’re craving for them.

To save money, you should focus more on your needs rather than your wants

 5. Look for ways to reduce expenses

It could be time to make spending cuts if you aren’t able to save as much money as you’d want. Determine the non-essentials you can do without, such entertainment and eating out. Look for ways to cut costs on your fixed monthly bills as well, such as your cell phone plan and auto insurance. Other suggestions for reducing daily spending include:

Examine recurring fees

Renewing memberships and subscriptions should be cancelled, especially if you don’t utilize them.

Compare the costs of cooking at home with eating out

Plan to prepare the majority of your meals at home, and on times when you want to reward yourself, look into local restaurant specials.

Delay making a purchase

Wait a few days before making an unnecessary purchase when tempted. The item might turn out to be something you wanted rather than needed, in which case you might make a strategy to save for it.

Eating out is pricey

Simply dining at home can help you save a ton of money each month. Additionally, since you’ve been saving money all month, you won’t feel bad about spending it if you have to dine out due to an occasion or because you’re short on time.

 6. Avoid competition

Buying things because friends are buying it, is not healthy when it comes to you saving money. You should avoid such competition.

Final Thought

As the we all are witnessing or experiencing recession, the best thing to learn how to do right now is, saving money. When you learn how to save money, you will automatically be in charge or control of your money and no recession will affect you heavily.
