No matter what the season, we should all be looking at ways to reduce the cost of living. Over the past decade or two, we’ve seen inflation in the economy soar, and with political changes like Brexit on the go, you can never be too careful about where your money is going – or isn’t. However, the spring/summer time brings many financial woes to us all, with renewals of tax credits, wage and price of living increases, and also planning summer vacations. If you don’t fancy spending the entire summer counting your pennies and being stuck with nothing to do, take a look at these spring/summer money making and money saving tips, and apply them to your financial world!
Bring down the cost of utilities
Is this even possible, we hear you say? It is infact, one of the easiest things to do, yet many people fail to make the changes. All you have to do is spend a little time using comparison websites for all of your utilities. You then speak to your providers and haggle them down for a cheaper deal, with the threat of leaving for a cheaper company and more often than not, you will find yourself with cheaper utilities with even more included in your bundles! Cool right? All providers are able to give you a cheaper price, they just need a little bit of haggling down to get the right one for you!
Better yourself in your career
One surefire way of ensuring that your financial future is brighter is by furthering yourself in your career. Obtaining a higher rank means more money, and that’s the end goal here. If you’re not contempt within your job, why not consider a supply chain management masters course that you can do completely online and in your free time? A change of career is totally possible without having to lose out on any hours in your current job! Definitely worth the consideration!
Do work outside of work
Nobody likes the idea of finishing work, and then coming home to do yet more work. But what if the extra work you were doing was fun and didn’t feel like work? Many people begin freelancing careers on the side of their regular jobs to make some extra cash. So, if you’ve got a keen eye for graphic design, or you’re pretty good with words, then why not sign yourself up to freelancing websites like Fiverr? You can accept work as you please and some jobs can be extremely well paid!
Check your entitlements
Finally, one of the biggest mistakes that people make in this day and age is by relying on the government to provide them the right information. While we’re not trying to say that they aren’t, it’s always worth checking your entitlements with your work schedule. You might be entitled to working tax credits, or even free childcare for your children. Both of which could help massively with your monthly income. Check them online at your convenience and make sure that you’re not owed anything!
