“I Don’t Like Saving - It Affects My Lifestyle Too Much”
What are some ways to potentially improve cash flow without changing lifestyles too much? Well, there are some things that might be done with a little planning - and it can be fun. Going to get an oil change? Look online for a coupon - a recent one I observed cut the price of a synthetic oil change by $30. Seeking to outfit a college apartment? Look on recycling websites/social media groups for small appliances like crockpots - you can often get them for free (garage sales especially when the homeowner is moving are also great places). What about vacations? There are so many cool things within a few hours radius - why fly when you can enjoy amazing day trips or overnights? If you dine out a lot, look for “restaurant weeks” where fine restaurants offer deep discounts. Like trendy clothes? Visit a consignment shop in a wealthy community (thrift shops in wealthy communities may also have some beautiful décor items). Love massage? Check out the specials offered by a massage school. Love health and beauty products? Many expensive brands are copied by generics. Want that car? Consider a model year leftover or a certified used edition. Incorporating some ideas like these into your spending patterns may just enable you to have your cake and eat it, too.
