Small Ways to Save Money At Home

June 28th, 2017 by tisner

Just because your home doesn’t have any major issues such as a leaky basement or a floor that is about to cave in doesn’t mean you don’t have a lot of little ways you are losing cash each month.  Below are a few small tips to help you save money at home that may eventually add up big.

  1.  If you have yet to change your lights over to energy efficient ones you should do that right away.   This is an easy way to save a little bit each month that doesn’t take long at all to accomplish.  LED lights are going to cost you a bit more than regular light bulbs but in the long run they will be a big help to your budget.
  2. Big ticket items such as air conditioning systems can cost you and your family a lot each year if you don’t do your part to make sure they work to the best of their ability.  Make sure to change your air filters on a regular basis and clean all the vents as well.  This type of maintenance should be done before the heat of the summer begins so that all will work correctly when it is needed most.
  3. Another small way to save money at home  is to make sure you eat what you put in your refrigerator.  Wasting food is a big money pit that affects many Americans today.   If you buy a lot of produce and other perishables you need to be sure to put them at eye level so that they don’t get lost in your fridge only to have to be thrown out later.  If you have a small family you might want to purchase smaller amounts of foods that don’t have a long shelf live to avoid wasting each week.
  4. If you haven’t already done so, get rid of your landline phone.  Most everyone these days has a cell phone and the need for a landline phone has almost become obsolete.  Save that $40 per month and put it towards something of better use.  You may be surprised at just how quickly $40 each month can add up.
  5. Before you decide to bring a furry family member into your home, realize that they are quite expensive.   If you are trying your best to save money perhaps buying a pet might need to go on the back burner for a while.

These are just a few ways in which your pocketbook can get a bit of rest  on a regular basis.  Use the ideas you like and see what a difference they can make.

Want To Save Money? Consider Downsizing

February 12th, 2016 by tisner

downsize

Although the economy has improved some over the last few years, it doesn’t seem to be getting a whole lot better for most Americans. A good way to save money is to downsize your home. This is especially a good idea if you have already raised your family and you and your husband are left paying a mortgage on a home that is too large for you. Let’s take a look at how downsizing your home will help you to save a bit of money, to live more comfortably as well as some easy ways that you can downsize.

  • One easy way to downsize is to look for a home that has a small garage or even no garage at all. If you and your spouse are living in the home alone and your children are grown it is likely that you don’t have a bunch of stuff to store in a garage. Buying a home without a garage is a great way to get more house for your money and to downsize your payment.
  • Finding a home without a lot of land is another way to downsize and to save big. You can find a lot of cute houses on the market these days that don’t have a ton of land with them. It is also good to find a home without a lot of land if you are older and don’t have the stamina you once had to do all the yard work that is involved with a house with a lot of land attached.
  • Buying a home that is one story is also a good way to downsize and to save when it comes to buying a new home. Buying a home without stairs is good for when you get older as well because you won’t want to or may not be able to climb them once you get up in years.
  • Realize that you don’t have to give up on the home of your dreams when you downsize. There are plenty of adorable houses on the market that won’t break your bank account that are 1500 square feet or less. Don’t let society dictate to you that you need a large house in order to fit in. There are plenty of upsides to downsizing to a smaller home!

Once you set your mind in the right direction and you realize that you don’t need to have a huge house and that it’s no longer important to “keep up with the jones’’ you will be well on your way to saving a lot of money.
