Maintaining your own household can be expensive, but there are several ways you can reduce your spending. Preferred Living has put together some money saving tips to help you manage your finances.
Internet, cable, and phone services can really add up if you have different providers. But bundling these services can save you $20 or more each month. Look for promotions online to see which provider offers the best deals for bundling your services.
Cut out the extras
Do you really need premium cable? How about that extra gigabit of service you never use on your phone plan? Examine your bills and determine which services are necessary and which ones you can live without.
Save on your grocery bill
Eating at home is almost always cheaper than going out, and grocery stores always have sales and coupons to help you save more. Many retailers even have online coupons, so you can download and save instantly when you shop.
Find the best deals on insurance
Insurance is a costly necessity. Make sure you shop around and find the best rate for your situation. Ask your current provider if you qualify for discounts, including ones for being a good driver, a student, or for having multiple policies with the same company.
Seek cheap entertainment
Having fun doesn’t have to be expensive. For example, many of Preferred Living’s communities have free amenities such as pools, complimentary DVDs and workout facilities for its residents. Columbus also hosts a number of free events, so be on the lookout when you’re browsing the internet or on social media.
