Some great tips for living frugally
Over at Zen Habits, there is a great post with 50 tips on how to live cheaply and frugally. Are you looking for ways to reduce your spending? Head over to the post.
A lot of these tips are incredibly excellent—so much so that I’ve begun incorporating them into my daily life.
#6 – Eat Out Less – My office offers a fully stocked kitchen, so why do I need to go get fast food every day? I have since completely quit eating at fast-food restaurants. In the long term, my wallet will benefit–not just from the cost of eating out, but also the medical savings of eating healthier.
#16 – Frugal Exercise – I have begun running a few miles every day. Additionally, I have a pair of dumbbells waiting for me to pick up from my parents’ house. I noticed that when I go to the gym, I only use the dumbbells and free weights, so why pay for a membership when I can get the same workout at home?
A lot of these tips are easy to incorporate into your daily life. By making the effort, you can find a lot of easy and fun ways to save money. I started biking to work once or twice a week just for the fun of it, but I noticed my gas bill getting smaller and my legs getting stronger. Making small, frugal changes such as these can totally improve the quality of your life. And with the money you save, you can invest in some P2P loans on Lending Club!
