There are many changes you can make around the house, big and small, that can help you save money. This article will discuss 5 of the most impactful changes you can make that will forever transform your finances. 

#1 Plan your meals 

This one may seem simple, and that’s because it is! How many items are sitting in your cupboard unused? One of the biggest drains on your finances is buying food unnecessarily. It will then either sit in the cupboard for months or even make it to the trash bin.

By planning your meals in advance, you can create a list of the ingredients you need and save a lot of money in the process! This also includes your snacks. Going to the small shop at the end of the road for your daily treat will cost significantly more than buying in bulk at the supermarket. Planning will also help free up space in your fridge freezer as well as reduce food waste! 

#2 Sew 

Not so long ago, there weren't cheap, fast fashion stores where you could replace any item of clothing within a day. Now it is too easy to splash the cash on new clothes when yours are damaged, or even to meet new trends.

Learning to sew is an invaluable skill and can save you a lot of money around the house. This enables you to fix broken clothes, or even get creative and turn your old clothes into new ones. You can also save on other household items, such as curtains, coats, towels, and bedsheets. 

#3 Air dry your clothes

Certain appliances are unnecessary and will eat your money and tumble driers are one of those.

If you have a small space in your home or yard, you can create a system that fits the space to air dry your clothes. This will help the condition of your clothes (less future replacements) as well as significantly cut your electricity bill. 

#4 Review your finances regularly 

How often do you take a look at your finances to see what you are spending your money on?

Too often, we look for external things to change to save money when actually, it is our own spending habits that are causing damage!

Make it a habit to regularly face and review your finances. See where you can make any small changes and ensure you are not paying for anything you don’t use! Take a look at any subscriptions, gym memberships, and automatic renewals. 

#5 Community solar power 

Investing in solar power can significantly reduce your electricity bills while reducing your impact on the plant. But sometimes, the initial investment is too high, making it inaccessible.

Technology is always growing and evolving, and now there are community solar projects, like choosesolar.com. This enables you to benefit financially from solar power by reducing your electricity bill, without the initial costs.  

There are so many ways you can save money around the home if you are willing to make a change. Start with a few small things, and continue to review your progress, and then see where else you can make an impact.
