Tips to Help Save Money

BuzzFeed has put together a list of small ways that you can save money. Here they are: 

  • Instead of buying a new phone every year, replace your battery. 
  • When you eat at restaurants, avoid ordering juice or soda. 
  • Insist on paying for what you ordered, rather than splitting the bill evenly. 
  • Unwanted subscriptions may be hiding in the App Store. 
  • Go through your inbox and unsubscribe from retailer emails.
  • Use the most simple expense tracking system possible. 
  • Mint is good for low-balance and excessive spending alerts, though. 
  • Eliminate “mindless” spending by putting up visual reminders of what you’re saving for. 
  • Automatic savings apps, like Digit, are helpful starts if you're living paycheck to paycheck.  
  • Have student loans? Pay off the most expensive (usually private) loans first. 
  • The bottom line: Set aside 30 minutes to review your finances every week.
