How To Save Money When Times Are Tough

Author : Philbert Manalo


As some people say, “The lack of money is the root of all evil”. That is because of the negative effects in our lives when we become insufficient with funds. As money becomes a necessity in our everyday lives, it also becomes impossible for us to live without it or live with the lack of it.
Sad to say, our recent economic times is one of the factors that greatly affect our budget. Job recession, payment for house rentals, bills that pile up, these are only some of the things that make it hard for someone to keep ends meet. That is why many people look for more options and ways to save money in order to survive in this currently tough time.
Here are some helpful tips to consider in order to save money:
1. Prioritize bill payments
Some bills are for household necessities such as electricity and phone bills. Forgetting to make payments for these bills would mean interruption of services which will lead to further hassle. Not only that you will not be able to take advantage of some services but delinquency and non payment of these bills may also appear on your credit report and may show a negative impact on your credit history.
3. Switch products
It is understandable that we keep loyalty to some products and services we feel to be using and meet our needs. However, there are times that some of these products and services become too costly even when there are great alternatives available. If the new product seems to be more cost effective but still meets your needs, then there is enough reason for you to change your product.
3. Cut back on personal expenses
Cutting back on your personal expenses does not mean depriving yourself too much on the things that you have to buy. It’s just a matter of prioritizing what you need versus the things that you just want. In this time of financial crisis, things could go worse if you don’t learn how to manage your spending activities. One way to help yourself is through choosing a prepaid credit card over a regular credit card. Unlike a regular credit card, you load money on prepaid debit cards before you make purchases, so you can choose just how much to spend.
Yes it may really be considered a tough time for people saving on their finances hen facing an economic crisis but this isn’t a time to have money troubles. For all we know, it only takes some wise spending decisions and strategies for us to be able to survive one.
