CHEERS TO 2014: 101 Ways to Save Money More

Let’s be honest: When it comes to money, we all could use a little more. However, it’s a grim reality that in between paying rent and bills, socializing, eating, dressing, downloading, and pretty much everything else we do, saving isn’t exactly an easy feat for most young women.

Below is Stylecaster’s list of how to start saving money for the future…

1. Buy things like tampons, makeup removing wipes, bobby pins, hair elastics, detergent, and toothpaste in bulk if you have the room to store them. You’d be shocked how much cheaper they are this way, as opposed to buying them individually at the drugstore.
2. Stop buying bottled water! Buy a water filter instead.
3.  If you know you’re only going to wear a trendy item once or twice, don’t buy it. It doesn’t matter how little you spend on something—if you never reach for it, it’s wasted money.
4. Likewise, invest in things you can wear or use daily like a bag, a cashmere scarf, a watch, a pair of boots, denim, or a coat, as opposed to things like trendy tops, or loud pants  you can wear once a week at most.
5. When you’re down to the end of a tube of toothpaste, snip the end off with scissors—there’s a lot left in there. Simply roll to close.

6. Drop your loose change into the same jar at the end of every day. Once a month, take it to the bank and get cold, hard cash!

8.Never download an app that costs money if there’s a basic free version. If you find you’re loving the app and using it regularly, then upgrade to the pay version.
