Saving Money at Home: Where to Begin?

Perhaps you have been thinking about or have already made a resolution to save money at home. Being aware of this is the first step! However, the most challenging part is knowing where to begin. iBilly is the app that can help you understand and manage your finances. In this article, you will find tips on how to save money at home.

Do you know how much you’re spending?

It’s often the smaller, recurring expenses that make saving money at home difficult. Think of the coffee you buy on the go at the train station or the extra groceries you didn’t really need but grabbed at the supermarket. These are moments that you can easily overlook, especially since they’re “small things.” However, all of these impulse purchases add up, and by the end of the month, you’ve spent a lot of money on things you didn’t really need. Awareness is the first step in this situation. But how do you move forward from there?

iBilly recommends keeping track of your expenses. You can do this entirely digitally in the iBilly app! You can even choose to automatically sync your expenses by linking your bank transactions to the app. This way, you have more control over your spending and can make informed purchase decisions. This may make saving money at home even easier, instead of just cutting out big expenses.

Tips for cutting back expenses

Cutting back on expenses essentially means reducing your spending. You might quickly conclude that you need to live more frugally, but you can also approach it from a positive perspective, such as being smarter with your money. By living with a more conscious spending pattern, you can have a simpler life. And it doesn’t have to be a bad thing. Think about occasionally splurging on an outing that costs a little more and finding joy in the small things for the rest of the time. Here are some tips on how you can save on recurring expenses such as various subscriptions:

  1. Are you making enough use of fixed expenses like a TV or phone subscription? If not, there might be a cheaper subscription available.
  2. Building on tip 1: you can also choose (only) streaming services. Or approach it from the opposite angle, if you use TV channels more, it might be a good idea to cancel the streaming services. It will save you money!
  3. Do you really need a new phone (including subscription) every two years? Decide to use your current phone for a little longer this time. This way, you can use your money for something more valuable.

By following these tips, you can analyze your fixed costs and determine whether they are really worth the money. This could be an easier way to start saving money at home.
