Get smart with your clothes shopping
Spending a fortune on clothes isn’t hard, what with so many beautiful pieces out there. However, it is possible to stay on-trend, without breaking the bank. One way of doing this is to shop in more fashion-forward low-cost stores like Primark.
Choosing vintage and preloved items can also be a fabulous way of keeping the cost of fashion low while retaining your signature look.
Cut everyday costs
One of the most straightforward ways of living your best life while keeping plenty of money in your pocket is to look at where you can make everyday savings. Then you get to spend the money on the more fun things in life.
The good news is there are many ways you can save money on everyday things. One particularly relevant place to cut back costs is on running your car. Make sure you use an app to shop around for petrol before you buy it and do as much maintenance at home as you can.
Additionally, you can save a fortune by using a shopping app that compares the total cost of your shop across supermarkets Thereby allowing you to choose the cheapest option every time.
Make additional income
In addition to cutting costs, bringing in more income is also a great way of ensuring you end up with money left in your bank account at the end of the month. There are many ways to generate an additional income, but most people are limited by time as they already devote theirs to their primary career.
This is where a type of investing known as CFD Trading comes in. CFD or “Contract For Difference” trading is a way of investing that deals with margins rather than having to buy the whole asset outright. What this means is you need less capital to begin, and like all forms of training it can be worked around your other responsibilities. Both of which make it an appealing opportunity that can help you make additional money to live your best life.
Look for special offers and deals
There is no shame in a deal! Smart people use deals and offer to do things for less money than they would be doing anyway. Some of the best deals around are for nights out, experiences and drinks. Look at sites like Wowcher and Groupon, and search by your area to see what’s on offer.
You can get great deals on accommodation and hotels too, especially if you use sites like Lastminute,.com and SecretEscapes.com. Both of which are designed to offer high-end experiences for a much lower price than people normally pay. Something that means you get to live the high life without clearing out your wallet!
