How to Save Money with your Home.


When money is tight, working overtime is not the only solution, as there are plenty of ways that you can save money around your home and by being at home. Rather than working extra to gain money, you can easily adapt your lifestyle to save some of the money that you already earning. This money can be saved and spent on fun adventures with your family, such as holidays, birthdays and fun days out with your kids. Read on to find out how you can save. 

Take Care of the House 

An easy way to cut down on money is to spend a small amount to invest in your home, ultimately saving you hundreds of pounds in the years to come. By covering appliances that can easily break, such as boilers and washing machines, you will save money in the future as there will be no need to fork out on pricey emergency maintenance. For example, the value + range of boiler cover from Certi can cost as little as £4.95 per month, but that small amount could save you hundreds when emergency strikes. Paying for boiler cover will put your mind at ease and ensure that you don’t have to worry about large repair costs. 

Take Notice of the Time of Year 

To save some pounds, you should take care when shopping and check the best time to buy furniture and appliances for your home. There are often sales around the holiday period, such as boxing day sales, as well as the newly adopted Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales. When in need of a furniture or appliance upgrade, if it is not an urgent need, then try waiting for sales and see what deals you can find - some items will be reduced by over half price and so you can save a lot of cash compared to shopping at a different time of year. 

Grow Your Own 

Growing your own fruit, vegetables and herbs can save you lots of money as you don’t need to buy expensive ones from a shop every time you need fresh ingredients. As well as this, having your own fruit and vegetable patch will give you much more produce for less than you would purchase in an average packet or punnet from the shop. You will also be doing your part for the environment as there is no plastic packaging. Available to grow inside and outdoors, growing your own produce will not only reduce cluttered packaging in your home and taste a lot fresher and better, but will also save you money on fresh ingredients. 

Relax and Entertain at Home 

A home should be a place in which you can not only relax in but entertain yourself too, and there are plenty of ways in which you can relax at home for free. Instead of spending money on a trip to the cinema, you can save by turning off the lights and having your own movie night in the comfort of your own home. 

As well as this, you can eliminate expensive trips to the spa by having your own spa day at home, with a relaxing bubble bath, a wide variation of face masks and skin treats, and even your own massage machine (if your partner refuses!) 

Often it is not a case of needing to earn more money, but freeing up more of the money you do have. Think of other ways to save, and you might be surprised by how much more financial freedom you will have.
