How to Save Money Fast

So you want to buy a car? If all the usual options are closed to you and you are unable to take out a load, then you need our guide to saving money. Take a look.

Reduce Your Outgoings

A budget is absolutely necessary for a saving plan. Detail everything, including all your incoming money, and everything that goes out. Be honest with yourself here, because it will essentially be useless without you detailing everything you spend your money on.

Think about everything you buy that isn’t essential. Can you substitute them out for a cheaper option, or cut them out completely?

Now look at the essential things you buy, and think about how you can reduce their cost. For instance, can you shop around for cheaper utility providers, or shop at a cheaper supermarket?

Set a weekly or monthly budget, and try to stick to it. A good way to prevent overspending is to allocate yourself a budget for certain areas, take it out in cash and spend only that amount. For instance, if you have a £40 food budget per week, then take it out in cash, put it in an envelope marked ‘food’ and spend it only on food. That way you can physically see what you’re spending, and how much you have left.

Increase Your Earnings

Increasing your earning is one of the most effective ways of saving, but it can be difficult. Whether you take on another part time job or you turn your hobby into a business, it does mean a hard graft on your part, but it may well be worth it in the end.

You could also sign up to rent out your drive for commuters to use, or offer up your home to be used in a film. You can do surveys to earn cash or vouchers, or become a mystery shopper.

There are also several ways to boost your cash income on a one-off basis, including selling household valuables and pawn broking. Raising cash through pawning doesn’t require a credit check and you’ll get the cash straight away. It is an alternative to selling your stuff, as you’ll still get a percentage of the value, but providing you pay back the loan, you’ll get your stuff back too.
