3 ways to save money and simplify your life

first_imgWe’re all busy, and life is pretty crazy. Juggling your personal life and a career can be quite stressful, and at times, very expensive., How often do you feel this way? If the answer is ‘too often’, it may be time to make a few changes. Here are three ways you can simplify your life and save money in the process.Set it and forget it: Keeping up with all of your financial responsibilities can be a hassle and an unnecessary stress in your life. To make this process easier, create a budget, stick to it, and automate as many payments as you can. When you don’t have to think about bills and savings accounts, it’s a lot less stress in your life, plus you don’t have to worry about late fees and missed payments.Get rid of your junk: After a long day, it’s nice to enjoy your home and all your “stuff.’ But how much of that ‘stuff’ are you really using? What’s important and what’s just clutter? You really think that kayak from college is going to ever be more than an artifact collecting dust? Getting rid of the clutter in your life can bring you peace and put a few extra dollars in your pocket. Have a garage sale, and donate whatever doesn’t sell to a local charity.Downsize your life: Are you running yourself to death getting from Point A to Points B, C, and D? Slow down a little. Between baseball, soccer, cheerleading, and ballet, your family can get way too busy. Figure out what’s important and cut out the stuff that doesn’t really matter. Being on-the-go less means being at home more, relaxing more, and spending less money on fast food and sporting goods. Have a newly empty nest? You probably don’t need as much room these days, so think about moving your nest into a smaller tree. 84SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,John Pettit John Pettit is the Managing Editor for CUInsight.com.
