Save Money for Little Luxuries!

Beauty and hair care products can be expensive so when we’re after the latest palette or hair styling product, how can we save money to go towards these luxuries?

Sell Your Old Unwanted Stuff
We hoard so many things and we only realize we do when we’re moving from one place to the next or having a spring clean. When you’re having your next declutter, set aside anything that might be of some value. There are plenty of apps nowadays that are great for selling your clothes, jewelry, CDs, and books, just look at for inspiration.

Fill In Online Surveys
Being asked to fill in a survey can be pretty boring but they’re much more appealing if you can get paid for filling one out. The surveys can vary in length and topics so there’s something for everyone and most websites can pay out immediately. With online surveys, you can do them in the comfort of your own home or on your daily commute to work.

Budget Your Money
Budgeting can be a great way of saving some money each week, so when you get your paycheck, note down all your outgoings. Work out what you have left and then split this up over the weeks and see if you can take a little bit out each week to save.

Without a budget, it can be easy to spend all of your money, so it’s worth committing to it.

Switch Energy Suppliers
You might find that you’re paying an obscene amount on your utilities and you may benefit from shopping around to find a new provider. A lot of them will offer great deals for new customers, so it’s definitely worth getting a few quotes and comparing them to what you currently pay.

After you get the quotes, it’s always useful to contact your provider to see if they can match the deal to make you stay. They’ll likely want to keep you as a customer then let you go to their competitors.

Cut Back On Eating Out
Eating out every day, even if it’s buying lunch, can be very costly. You could save a lot of money just by preparing your lunches at home and limiting the number of evening meals you have out, per month. The multiple courses and tips you’re required to pay towards aren’t something you’d normally have at home, so save your money!

If you still want to have the social side of eating out, invite your friends over for dinner and suggest a monthly rotation which gives everyone the chance to cook for each other.

Ditch The Membership
Got a gym membership that you use once in a blue moon? You don’t realize just how much you waste money through memberships until you actually cancel them. You can always find a pay as you go gym until you’re ready to go back.

Check out all your other memberships too, as well as any subscriptions that you have. It might be a good idea to cut back on a few for a while.

There’s plenty of ways to save and make money, so if you persevere, you’ll save up money for the latest beauty buys in no time!
