With the holidays coming up I know we are all looking for ways to save money on monthly expenses. You want to be able to spend more money on gifts and events. So I am sharing 3 ways to save money on monthly expenses that you will for sure want to check out!
3 Ways To Save Money On Monthly Expenses
Monitoring Energy: Do you ever wonder where you can make easy cuts? How about around the house with the energy you use? Do you leave lots of things plugged in? Even if they are off they are using energy and costing you money. What about those 2 TV’s you have that you never use? Yep costing you money. A great way to figure out how much wasted energy you’re using is by installing a Neurio energy monitor. It installs conveniently into your breaker box to monitor your entire home’s energy usage.
You can reduce your “Always On” usage to save you money. Like the example I gave about a TV being plugged in but not being used often. The same with electronics you don’t use a ton (stereo, coffee machine). Here’s another example. Say you have your AC on 73 and you want to know how much you’re REALLY saving by turning it to 75. Neurio can tell you that. It can tell you how much you’re using when you turn your dryer on. Or run the dishwasher. It’s fascinating to see how much you can easily save!
Ask Companies For Lower Rates: If you have XM radio, cable, internet, etc call the companies and ask them for whatever deals they are currently offering. Most companies will lower your bill sometimes even by over $100! It takes maybe 30 minutes total to call them all but it’s worth it! Try it out!
Meal Plan/Take Your Lunch: A great way to make sure you are saving money on monthly expenses is to not buy food you don’t need. I can remember when we did not meal plan, we would just go to the grocery store and buy whatever. The amount of food we threw out is insane. The amount of money that adds up when you eat lunch out 5 days a week is insane. If you meal plan, and take leftovers for lunch you will save HUNDREDS of dollars a month!
Once you make a few cuts you will see how easy they are to live with and truthfully you won’t even notice. I would love to know how you would save money on monthly expenses?
The Neurio Home Energy Monitor is available on Amazon Prime and makes the perfect holiday gift for any homeowner.
