Going broke is the last thing I want to do in my life. However, as I keep travelling around the UK and the world because of my job, saving becomes difficult. Over the years, I learnt the perfect way to utilize my free time and earn some money as well. I play Quickspin slots online. It gives me hundreds of opportunities to earn a few extra pounds and also keeps me entertained during long, tiring flights.
Apart from playing slot games online, you can also employ some frugal methods of saving money to ensure that you don’t go broke at the end of the month. Here are some of these methods.
Eat out less often
If you are really feeling hungry, bring your lunch from home. This will help you stay healthy and ensure that you never have to spend unnecessary money on food (and the taxes). Always ensure that you carry some fruits and nuts along. Snack up on them whenever you are feeling hungry. Bananas and apples are the first choices for such energy boosting and filling foods but you can indulge in any other fruit as well.
Travel by public transport
Buses and the subway are crazy cheap when compared to moving by your own car. On weekends, I travel to work exclusively on public transport. On these days, the traffic is slightly lesser inside the subway, which helps me travel comfortably. In fact, I do so on Mondays too. It helps me cut through the traffic and reach my destination on time. Plus, it helps you in saving money too.
Avoid the pub on weekends
You don’t have to do it every weekend. However, if you successfully avoid the pub every alternate weekend, you will be saving up enough money to avoid going broke. Instead, get some drinks home, get a large bowl of popcorn or nachos and enjoy your evening. Read, walk, exercise, go grocery shopping or do anything else.
Secret hiding spots
As long as money is in your pocket or bank account, you run the risk of spending it. I avoid doing so by keeping my money at some secret spots. I keep it under the mattress, in my phone cover and sometimes even the small pocket of my wallet. I don’t usually search these places for money but whenever I run out of the green bills, there is always one note lying in my secret hideouts.
Start practicing these mantras and you will notice a marked increase in the money in your pocket, especially by the end of the month.
