Get More From Your Money
This eBook is filled with bite-sized nuggets of wisdom that you can quickly read through and choose some ideas to start implementing right away. You will see some common threads in their answers which reinforces the fact that they are effective, so we should be using these strategies! But you might also discover some ideas that you hadn't thought of before and that gives you a different way of looking at your finances.
The experts they interviewed are real people, with kids, jobs, and all the expenses of a normal life, who are finding clever ways to stretch their budgets to get more from their money.
One tip that Val Breit of The Common Cents Club shared in Get More From Your Money that I use regularly in my daily life is to think “about how many hours you’d have to work to pay for each thing.” She says, “If you earn $14 per hour, is that $30 takeout pizza and soda worth it or will the $3 frozen pizza and water suffice?” I apply this technique whether I am looking at new shoes, a kitchen gadget, eating out, furniture, or a car. When you think about how many hours you are working to pay for that item, it seriously makes you rethink whether you need it or not!
A tip that I picked up while reading Get More From Your Money from Eileen Adamson of Your Money Sorted and have already started using is to “Set reminders every year for around 6 weeks before your contracts are up, and compare every single bill.” She points out that the penalty for staying loyal to companies is huge and massive savings can be made, simply by switching providers. She says, “In terms of insurances, you will get the cheapest quotes around 4-6 weeks before the renewal date, so it makes sense to compare early.”
