101 Ways to Help Your Budget and You at Home

 

4. Sell Used & Unwanted Items
Another way to save some money is to sell your unused and unwanted items and use that cash to buy groceries or other necessities. This can be a little time consuming, so if possible, set aside a day each month to make returns.

 

5. Cut Out A Car Payment
When I first began working from home, we quickly realized that we had more bills than we had money for. 🙂  One solution that we came up with was to sell one of our fairly-new cars to get rid of the car payment. Now, I still needed to be able to get around during the day and so we opted for the cheapest (yet still reliable) car that we could find.
I drove that 97 Oldsmobile – peeling paint and all – until it just wouldn’t run anymore. And by that time it was several years and we were able to finance a car to replace it.

 

6. Buy Ahead
Christmas & birthday shopping can be detrimental to your family budget. I’m still working on this particular skill, but I have friends that shop all year for these occasions in order to get the best deals possible. They also say that it helps by giving them additional time to come up with unique/creative gifts. Instead of rushing around at the last minute, let’s challenge ourselves to shop ahead this year and save some $$.

 

Tune in tomorrow for the next installment of 101 Tips To Help Your Budget (And You!) at Home.
