Once you have children, life gets, shall we say, a tad more expensive. You have to pay for clothes, food, toys and as they get older the latest fashion. They push up your bills, and they can make the cost of home maintenance a lot more expensive. That said, I don’t begrudge my kids the money they spend or the money I spend on them. In a way, they’ve helped me. They’ve pushed me to save more so I can buy everything we need and want without the costs getting too great to handle. You might have wondered about how I do this. Well, I’m happy to tell you all the ways I make home living a little cheaper.

Price Checking

My first tip is to make sure you’re price checking whatever you buy. I do include everything in this advice from energy bills to the local food shop. These days, it’s easy to check the prices of the largest and smallest purchases online without any trouble at all. There’s no excuse not to be doing it and before long you’ll save a lot of money without even trying. You just need to get into the habit of always checking the price of anything that you buy, from toilet roll to car insurance.

Coupon Websites

You probably know by now that I love using coupons. I like telling people where they can get them too and most of the time I use services like Coupons Code Finder. By doing this, I’m able to get the codes for all my favorite stores. It doesn’t matter what your preference is when it comes to shopping; there’s probably a code for it available online. You just need to know where to look.

Energy Saving

What’s the biggest drain from your bank account each year? I’ve told you already; it’s the amount you waste on energy bills. I say waste because generally speaking; energy bills don’t have to be a fortune. Usually, they cost so much because people struggle to cut them down. But, there are lots of ways you can pay less on energy bills. One possibility is to save on water by using it out of the kettle. You can use that water to make tea and fill the washing bowl. By doing this, you can make sure that you’re spending less on the water each month. Particularly, if you’re living on a water meter.

Buying In Bulk

Finally, if you know you need a product, you may want to consider buying it in bulk. Particularly, if it is on offer one day of the week. An example of this is if you know there’s a drink your kids love. Suddenly it’s on offer with forty cans for seven dollars. In this case, it’s best to buy three packs rather than one. While, you’ll be spending more on your weekly shop in the short-term, in the long-term, you’ll be spending less.

Using my advice, you’ll be able to save a lot more and spend on things you truly desire.

    I like your ideas of saving. I buy products in bulk when they are on sale too. I unplug items when they are not used…. like phone and computer chargers.
