Ways To Increase Your Savings And Eliminate Debts

Aug 17, 2007
People, who have fallen into debts, suddenly find their debts increasing drastically. They need to effectively manage their finances to eliminate these debts or else they will fall deeper and deeper into this debt pit. Some of the ways that may assist you in paying off the debts are as follows:

Buying On Impulse
People just buy what they fancy even if they may not require the items. These costs ultimately add up to a significant amount at the end of the year. In order to optimize ones savings, people should be very clear about what they need and avoid unnecessary expenses.

Phones
The expenses on phone calls drain away a lot of ones money. People should be on the lookout for more economical cell phone schemes. One should try to restrict oneself to having just one phone, either a cell phone or a landline. If the monthly bills are rising drastically, keep a check on your call duration.

High End Vehicles
Everyone loves to own a fancy vehicle but one should see the practical side too. Always check the mileage, fuel consumption, repair, maintenance and other costs. When saving money is of prime concern, it may be sensible to opt for a cheaper more fuel efficient vehicle.

Discount Coupons
Always be on the lookout for shop sales, discount periods and shops giving discount coupons. These save a lot of money in the long run. Also try to avail of membership offers and saving clubs when available in certain big stores.

Branded goods
Avoid purchasing branded articles especially clothes and other accessories. These goods are priced exorbitantly as a major chunk of the cost is associated with the brand name. Buying lesser known products will help you to save a lot more cash.

Dining Out
Restaurants and hotels charge very heavily for meals. Hence try to reserve these hotel meals only for special occasions.

Weekly Entertainment
Entertainment provides a way to release the pent up stress. However to avoid burning a hole in your pocket try cheaper means like rent out a movie instead of visiting a cinema, etc. Also try the free festivals, concerts, etc.

Vices
Vices are addictive and generally costly. Try cutting down or gradually stopping your drinking alcohol, smoking, gambling, etc. The amount of money saved in the process will certainly surprise you.

Incorrect Bills
Always scrutinize your bills before paying them. This will ensure that there are no mistakes and you do not pay any excess or for items not purchased.

Mortgage payments
Always be punctual while paying your mortgage charges. Try to pay more than the required minimum. This will ensure you get rid of the debt at the earliest.
