6 Smart Ways to Save Money From Home

1. Zero out your money every evening.

Did you know that zeroing down is a pretty cool way to save money from home?  Here’s how it works!

Subtract the last number of whatever account, wallet, or loose change that you have to zero. That means, if you have $23, you then take the leftover $3 (which leaves you with $20) and you put that into your savings account or money jar.

The zeroing out money-saving method will save you a little bit of your unspent money, making it so much easier, to focus on saving and less on spending.


2. Count backward from 10.

It may sound silly to count backward out loud but if you shop from home, then this one is for you! 

Don’t pull out your credit card or use your pay pal account for that awesome deal that you just saw on Amazon, in your email, or Instagram. 

Instead, count backward slowly from 10, breath in and out several times, and then ask yourself “do you really need this?”.

Oftentimes, it all comes down to creating a little space between the thought, the action, and the response to make better decisions!

3. Always pay with cash.

If you are paying for food or takeout with your card, for example, or maybe for anything getting delivered to your home. 

Handing out $20 dollars in cash is a lot harder than just swiping with your credit/debit card.

In fact, when you use cash, studies state that you’ll have an emotional attachment to the physical paper over the plastic when swiped.

Plus, it’s so much easier to process that you are giving away your hard-earned money if you used cash than if you were to pay for it via tap. 


4. Keep track of your expenses.

This next money-saving tip is what every household should have!

Let’s say if you were to spend the next thirty days writing down every transaction you make, so that by the end of the month you will have a detailed understanding of exactly how much you’re spending each month?

You would definitely see your bad money spending habits!

Keeping track of your expenses is key to saving, so try to keep it in a spot in your home where you won’t forget to use it. 

You’ll be amazed at what you’ve been spending your money on when you really take a detailed approach to it.

5. Work from home.

I bet you have a couple of hours in your life that you could spend working a bit more if you really wanted to grow your net worth?!

Or maybe you have a hobby that could be turned into a profitable side hustle? Or maybe you can make one of these easy DIYs to sell on Esty or Amazon!

Whatever you choose, starting your own business or investing in your ideas will give you an opportunity to MAKE more money from home.

Plus, as the saying goes, “when you are making money you are not spending it!”. 

There are loads of ways to make money on the side, you can take a look at this post here where I talk about the 7 most popular side hustles to make extra money online from home, or you can follow the path that I chose and start your very own blog.


6. Avoid advertisements.

Now, this money-saving tip may sound a little bit silly as well, but if you try to avoid any general advertising, you might not be less tempted to buy or subscribe to things.

Advertising can really pull us in to spend a lot more money than we need to.

Plus, you are reading this money-saving article because you want to save more money, and to do that, you need to give your brain some space. 

Mute the TV, get an ad blocker for Youtube, and reduce your likelihood of impulse buying. 

There you go! Whatever you decide to do to get your finances in order, know that the world can be your oyster and you can save more money because you have the power to create the life you crave!
