1.Sell your books

The books that you no longer read or have more than one copy (trust me, you’re not the only one!), you could sell them online or to those small second hand book fairs and make a few extra dollars.

2. Sell your clothes

I don’t know about you but I own a lot of clothes that I no longer use. They take up a lot of space in my closet. So, if you’re like me, selling them is the best option.

3. Sell old furniture

If you have old furniture that just taking up space and has no use, then this is a good option and you make money out of it! You can sell them to second-hand shops or to antique shops.

4. Create your own products

5 things you should stop buying

We all are affected by consumerism, and everything is so reachable nowadays, that we often don’t realize how much money we are overspending on our day-to-day lives.

So, here’s a small list of tips you can incorporate in your routines, that will have a huge impact on your savings at the end of the month.

1.Stop buying coffee outside

You can make your own coffee and bring it with you instead. Those fancy coffee shops are usually extremely expensive, plus those drinks have too much sugar in it. Your health and your wallet will appreciate it.

2. Join your local library

If you’re as addicted to books as I am, you’ll find that at the end of the month you’re practically broke. To change this, I joined my local library. I pay a low monthly fee and I get to loan tons of books. You should definitely try it.

3. Get reusable water bottles

First, we all know that we need to drink a couple of liters of water per day. That equals 4 small plastic bottles. This isn’t just affecting the environment but is also making you overspend every day. If you get those reusable bottles, you’ll be saving both your money and the environment.

4. Quit or decrease dine outs

This is pretty self-explanatory. If you decrease going out for meals you’ll save more money, but obviously, don’t make this a strict rule, you can be flexible. The point is to save money but still enjoy life!  

5. Review your subscriptions

Go through your subscriptions and figure out what you actually consume. You should finish or adjust the ones that you are no longer using.

That is it, thank you for reading it. I’ll see you in my next post.

How to make a shopping list

This post will show you the best tips or hacks to make an efficient shopping list, in order to save money and not over buy.

1. Make an inventory
This might sound a bit crazy but trust me, it’s really helpful. Write down every single product you have. Make different lists: a food list (don’t forget to check the expiration date!), a hygiene list, a household list and a medicine list (again, check the dates).

2. Plan out your meals
Write down all your lunch ideas, dinner recipes and snacks that you’d normally have throughout the month/week, depending on the shopping list you’re making (a weekly or a monthly one).


3. Check your coupons
Go through your coupons and see if any of them match the items on your list, if they do, don’t forget to bring them (keep them close to your shopping list). See the expiring date of the remaining coupons. If they’re close to the end, you might want to buy the products on it, doing so you’ll be saving money and making the most out of the existing coupons.

4. Make the shopping list

Now that you finally gathered all of your data, you are ready to start writing down your shopping list. Write down all the needed items and have fun with it!


That’s it, I hope you enjoyed it and thank you for reading it. I’ll see you in my next post.
