My 27 Ways to Save Money

BEFORE YOU START SAVING MONEY, YOU’VE GOT TO HAVE A PLAN FOR WHAT YOU’LL DO WITH THAT MONEY

If you start following the suggestions on this list and start saving money, it’ll bring you very little joy unless you have a plan for the money you’re saving. In fact, it’ll likely feel like torture. So let’s start with making your plan. Let me ask you a few questions.

  1. What would you be doing with your life if money was no object? Where would you work, live? How would you contribute to making the world a better place?
  2. What would happen to your family/your life if your main source of income was suddenly stripped away via a job layoff or some other incident? Would you have enough to pay the bills? Would you be able to stay in your house?
