While there have always been awesome tips to save money, it’s not more important than ever. Gas prices have gone through the roof, food prices have increased substantially, and while we haven’t technically hit a recession yet, it’s looming in the distance.
Preparing for your financial future has never been a more pressing conversation. Whether you are looking to save on utilities, get more bang for your buck on groceries or extend the life of your appliances, there is something for everyone in here!
Tips to Save Money in 2022
Cancel unused subscriptions
Monthly bills can really stack up – and have you ever wondered how many monthly subscriptions you are paying for? Going through your bank and credit card statements to see what exactly you signed up for (and how long you’ve been a “member”) can help you cut down on your bills.
Buy in Bulk
Sam’s club and Costco are in Springfield, Mo. and surrounding cities – stocking up on things such as toilet paper, detergent, paper towels and other products can help you save time, money and grocery store runs!
Tax incentives for energy-efficient upgrades
Investing in solar energy for both electric and water heating can get you deductions when tax season comes. Be sure to reach out to your local solar company to discover how much you can save.
Grill out more
Grilling in the summertime can help you AND your air conditioning unit. Using your stove or oven to cook can create a lot of heat which makes your air conditioner work harder. Grill outside every chance you get!
CFL lights vs LED lights
CFLs use a quarter of the energy of incandescent bulbs while also lasting for years. The only downside is they take a while to warm up to full brightness. LEDs on the other hand, are more expensive, but they are getting cheaper all the time. They also can last for decades.
Trim bushes around your AC unit
Your AC unit needs space so it can get air easily. Surrounding your unit with shrubs can make it difficult to run efficiently. Trim up the bushes so you are giving your unit at least a foot around it, clean the ground around it of debris or leaves, and be sure to change your filters twice a year.
Veteran? Use your discounts!
Many businesses locally and nation-wide offer Veteran discounts. This includes home improvement stores, restaurants and other retail businesses. Be sure to ask when you get up to the counter to pay!
Eat out less.
With the staffing shortage leaving restaurants hurting, the increasing food prices has also hurt the hospitality scene. Instead of eating out all the time, start buying some groceries and cooking at home!
