Our home can be a source of expenses, but you can also make it a source of savings, it all depends on how you want to educate yourself and educate others.
Surely they have also always taught you that the only way to save and be tidy with your money is to take out a percentage of your money every month. However, they have forgotten to mention that there are other methods that also help you save money and manage your resources in a more optimal way.
Today we want to tell you how you can save money from your home, learning to manage your services, limiting the consumption of certain things and above all, having greater control of everything around you and what you consume without measuring yourself, believing that you cannot do the things in a different way.
So take careful note of the following recommendations, but above all, put them into practice so you can receive the best results:
1.Use the washing machine 2 or 3 times a week
If you are one of those who wash without control, let us tell you that this is one of the appliances that consume more light. Therefore we recommend organizing quantities of clothes that deserve to be washed (not 3 or 4 garments) and that you order a washing schedule in which you wash 3 times a week. Thus you will feel relief both in light and in consumption of cleaning products.
2. Design a meal plan for each day
Knowing what you are going to cook besides making your life easier, also helps you to know more precisely the foods you are going to use to prepare it. This helps you save food, make more accurate purchases and prepare the precise quantities. In conclusion, you save on purchases, save on consumption and decrease the elimination of unconsumed food.
3. Turn off the lights
This is perhaps one of the most common recommendations, but also one of the least applied. Do not leave all the lights on in your house, turn off those that are not necessary and leave only one (if strictly necessary) on. Remember that usually at night what you do is watch TV, for which it is not very necessary to have the lights on.
4. Define a time to shower.
If you are one of those who need a lot of time to shower, and for obvious reasons, a lot of water, this point is for you. We recommend you put a maximum shower time, in order to save water. What environmental corporations recommend is to do it in maximum 3 minutes, yes … in 3 minutes. Do you measure yourself to the challenge?
5. Close the water taps
Finally: do not leave the taps open while you wash the dishes, soaps your clothes, brush your teeth or any other activity that involves water, open it only when necessary, that is, when you should clean the soap and not before.
They are simple habits that, when they change, bring you results that are sure to surprise you and will greatly minimize your monthly expenses.
Another way to save money from home is to avoid the maximum delay in the payment of your bills, because in doing so, these payments start to generate interest and the amount to be paid increases.
In these cases, our recommendation is that you acquire credits in a responsible manner with which you cover the pending payment and have the certainty of being able to pay it the following month, in this way you will be able to live more calmly and without outstanding monies to pay that destabilize your economy.
