It is time to talk about one of my favorite topics in the world, angora bunnies. No! I’m kind of kidding. We’re here to talk about saving! Woot Woot woot!
These are some ideas for you to consider when it comes to saving money! You may know some them, some of these are obvious, but hopefully some of them will be new to you so that you can save a little bit of extra cash, invest it, and hopefully it can lead to more financial freedom in your life.
So let’s jump straight in:
Eat before you actually go out. This one is a little obvious but with this tips, you’d probably end up spending less when you go out with friends to eat.
Buy secondhand or refurbished. My computer right here was purchased second hand. I bought it form apple’s refurbished website( where you can save a couple of hundred bucks purchasing refurbished items that works just as good as the new product. I’ve also purchased most of my camera gear second hand such as my Sony A7S II, lenses, Smallhd screen, and lights. I’ve been able to save a ton from just doing this.
Meal prep. A lot of people when they come home from work, they just feel super tired and don’t feel like cooking an entire meal. I mean don’t get me wrong I enjoy cooking but I don’t always feel like starting the whole cooking process when I feel tired. This is where meal prepping comes in handy. So when you go to the grocery store, just buy a couple of extra ingredients that you can use to cook a couple of extra meals for your week.
Wait before buying. When you’re about to make an impulse purchase, stop yourself, and ask do you really really need this. Does this add any value to your life? And this is especially for expensive items! What I recommend is making yourself wait AT LEAST 24-48 hours before making that decision.
Drive less. All I’m talking about is to try not to use your car as much. Are you having to spend a ton of cash on gas every single week? Is there public transportation available in your city?
Buy in bulk. When you buy things in bulk, the cost per unit goes down. If there are things that you tend to spend a lot of money on such as rice, beans, toilet paper, paper towels, and toothpaste then it’s best to buy them in bulk this way your cost per item goes way down.
Declutter your stuff. Marie Kondo your life baby! Dig around your room, garage, and attic and start to get rid of stuff that you haven’t used in the past year or two.
Bargain. Duh Mika that’s obvious. But I hope that this is a good reminder for you. Try not to pay the full price for anything unless it’s your only option.
Renegotiate your bills. Now this isn’t something that you can do with every single bill but I’ve been able to do this my internet bill.
Educate yourself through reading books, blogs, and watching videos of what’s worked for other people and how you could apply those methods to your life. Obviously there are thousands of ways that you could be saving money at this moment but most of the ways that I’ve discovered have been through just researching and also asking my friends what’s worked for them.
hello hello hello everybody hope you guys are doing well it is time to talk about one of my favorite topics in the world Angora bunnies nope it is about saving money these are some ideas where you can save a little bit of money in areas that you didn't think you could some of these ideas are fairly obvious and just good reminders but some of them may be new and if they are new I hope that they help you save money invested so that you can have more financial freedom in your life so let's jump straight in this may be obvious but eat before you actually go out if you're planning on eating out with some friends it may be a good idea to just eat at home and then maybe have a snack or to know when you're out with your friends so this tip may help you save a ton of money just by simply eating at home and then when you do meet up with your friends just grab a snack or a drink or something tip number two buy second-hand or refurbished now this computer right here was bought refurbished on the Apple website if you guys didn't know Apple has a page on their website where you can buy some of their refurbished equipment I will put a link below it is not an affiliate link god mica stop puttin affiliate links everywhere so on the website you can find a bunch of refurbished products where you can save a couple hundred bucks on computers or iPhones and actually save a bunch of money I've also purchased most of my camera gear refurbished so like my sony a7s – my lenses and some of my lights I've been able to save a bunch of money doing this refurbished basically means that a customer bought a product where maybe they were unhappy with the product or there was a technical problem so they send it back to the company company fixes it does all the new parts and then just puts it back in the market as a refurbished item tip number three is to meal prep a lot of people when they come home from work sometimes they just feel super lazy and tired and they don't want to cook a meal so guess what they do you go out and eat cheap food fast food or do-over eats or something and you actually spend the point more money then you could've just by cooking at home don't get me wrong I personally enjoy cooking I think it's super fun and actually therapeutic and also a good learning experience but some days I just don't feel like cooking at home that's where meal prepping comes in handy so when you do go to the grocery store just buy a couple of extra ingredients that you do enjoy eating and just make a couple of extra meals maybe just try to batch cook five meals at a time or six eight or ten challenge accepted by my fiance and I enjoy doing this because we can figure out what nights we can eat at home and then what are some other nights we can maybe go out with this you don't really save money but you also save a bunch of time meal prepping also holds you back from using services like uber eats or post mates because when you're tired you're going to try to find the easiest way to get food but if you choose to meal prep you can avoid eating junk somewhere else and eat healthier food and also save money tip number four is to wait before buying when you're about to make an impulse purchase stop yourself for a minute and ask why do you really really really really really really need this right now does this thing that you're about to buy add any value to your life and this is especially for expensive items I would recommend waiting 24 to 48 hours before you make that final decision also you don't have to apply this method to every single purchase that you have such as buying a cup of coffee or angora bunny but maybe things that are over a hundred bucks or two hundred bucks I hope this encourages you to get out of the impulse mindset and more into a relaxed in controlled mindset to where every time you're about to make a purchase you ask yourself do I really need this are there other things you could be putting that money towards such as saving and investing or giving it to someone in need those are really good questions to ask before you make that impulse purchase tip number five is to drive less I'm not talking about drive less cars but dude less driving I'm basically trying to say is to not use your car as much are you having to spend a ton money on gas every single week with owning a car you don't only have to pay for gas but you know you have to pay for your insurance and for your oil changes and tire changes and a bunch of other unexpected repairs that come up over the years from my experience I think I saved about 20 bucks a month last year just by deciding to work from home and not going to coffee shops or not going across the city to some other spot but just staying at home and getting the work done tip number six is to buy in bulk if there are things that you tend to spend a lot of money on such as toilet paper toothpaste rice and beans and angora bunnies then it's best to just buy them in bulk because the cost per unit goes down tip number seven declutter your stuff start digging around in your room garage or attic and get rid of a bunch of stuff that you haven't used in the past two years a lot of times you're just holding on to items that are just getting devalued as time goes on so it's just best to just sell it and get rid of it and save the money and then once you save that money invest it and make that money work for you there's a billion websites where you can just sell your stuff like Craigslist or Facebook marketplace and also local places like Buffalo Exchange where I've taken a bunch of my old clothes and gone cash for tip number eight is to bargain I come from a third world country so bargaining is literally woven into my DNA when you're about to buy something try not to pay the full price unless it's your only option nowadays you can just look up the price of anything online and use that to make the best decision if you're buying something on Craigslist or Facebook marketplace just try throwing a lower number and see how the seller responds a lot of times if the cell is trying to get rid of the item quickly they may just be prone to selling it at a lower price tip number nine is to negotiate your bills now this isn't something that you're able to do with every single bill but I have been able to do this with my internet bill right now at this moment you can pick up the phone call your service provider and negotiate your bill just let them know that you're gonna cancel your plan unless they come down on their price so recently my internet bill skyrocketed by like 40 bucks a month and I picked up the phone and call them and was like hey I'm gonna cancel this plane I'm not about to pay a ton of money for my internet bill and what ended up happening was that they ended up giving me a lower price and also giving me faster internet this is crazy it does work guys you should do it tip number 10 is to educate educate yourself by reading books blogs and watching videos and seeing what's worked for other people and what hasn't what are some of those methods they can incorporate into your life obviously there's a billion ways to save a bunch of money such as not buying angora bunnies in bulk but a lot of the methods that I have learned and have incorporated into my life have just been through research and through reading and blogs and videos and seeing how other people have worked towards financial freedom so like I said in the beginning of this video I hope some of these methods have been good reminders and some have been new that you can work into your life all I want for you is to save a bunch of money invest it and just have financial freedom so you can do the creative things you want to do if you enjoyed watching this video and found it helpful please
