Save Money – Don’t Be Proud
If you want to improve your life and personal finances, then OlyLife recommends that you save money by taking advantage of ways to save more and spend less. If you are not too proud, here are three ideas that will help you keep more money and enable you to build your savings!
Three Ways to Save Money
1. Use coupons when you go out to eat.
Web sites like RetailMeNot provide printable coupons for big discounts on restaurant dining. So, before leaving work or home, why not save five bucks, or ten percent or whatever the offer is and print off a coupon to take with you? It’s FREE money, people!
2. Share a meal with a co-worker, friend, or family member.
Look, nowadays the portions served in restaurants offer more calories than most of us need to consume, so split a meal by asking for a second plate. By doing this, you will be saving half the price on your meal – two for one savings!
3. Drive your car a little (or a lot) longer.
Too many folks have gotten into the habit of trading in their cars every three years. Sound familiar? Many autos will last for a hundred to two hundred thousand miles before needing a major engine overhaul. That’s probably three to six times longer than you normally keep a car, right? Why shell out another 10, 20, or 30 thousand (yes, thousand) dollars just to be seen in the latest model? Just by driving your car a few more years, you can save big money! (Don’t be too proud to be seen in a seven or ten year old car – get over it!)
Don’t Be Too Proud to Save – Be Proud of Saving
When you save money by using coupons, splitting restaurant meals, and driving your car for a few more years, you can be proud of your thrifty life. So, start saving those dollars for a rainy day and you will be making the most of your life – That’s OlyLife!
