Five Strategies to Help Manage Costs at Home
We are all feeling the pinch of higher prices. Here are five strategies to help manage costs at home.
REDUCE FUEL CONSUMPTION
Consolidate errands, map out the most efficient route, carpool, don’t idle your vehicle, and reduce your speed when driving.
IMPROVE ENERGY EFFICIENCY
Insulate and weatherproof your home to lower heating and cooling bills.
CANCEL UNUSED SERVICES
Are you paying for services you’re not using? Check your bank and credit card statements for recurring subscriptions, services, and other expenses that you no longer need or use.
CHECK YOUR RATES
Are you still getting the best rates for the services and products you do use? If not, it might be time to shop around.
PAY OFF DEBT
This might seem extra hard right now. But debt costs money, too. The faster you pay off debt, the less you pay in the longterm.
