Now that the lockdown restrictions are starting to ease, it is only right that many of us want to get away from our homes ASAP and enjoy some adventures. One thing you might want to consider though is staying at home for a little longer and saving up some money to fund the best getaway you can once things are safer.
Today we are going to talk about some of the different ways that you can save money at home and fund your dream trip either later this year or in 2022.
Eat Fewer Takeaways
One of the bad habits many of us got into during lockdown was eating junk food and ordering out with our favorite takeaways far too often. We all know how it is — ordering a tasty burger and fries is much more appealing than making a salad however it is so important that we do not waste so much money on food, because it really adds up. To ensure you can save up for the best adventure possible, stop eating takeaways and instead opt to stay at home and enjoy some freshly cooked meals. A freshly cooked pasta dish is much healthier than a takeaway and you can make it your own and perfect for your tastes.
Save On Energy
One of the ways you can save money at home this year is to consider how to save on your energy bills. There are a few different ways to do this such as installing rooftop solar panels or insulating the walls of your home, and even comparing the prices of energy providers to find the best deal. Ensure that you take into account the small things like water usage and charging your electronics and make the most of every penny.
Uninstall Clothing Apps
A dangerous aspect of having mobile apps at your disposal is how easy it is to go online shopping, If you have some clothing apps on your phone or your tablet it is all too easy to scroll through and make some rash purchases out of boredom and we’ve all been there! If you are looking to save a few pennies for your next trip, uninstall the apps and you will be much less likely to start browsing the shops when you get bored!
Make Big-Batch Meals
As well as eating fewer takeaway meals it is important for you to also consider making batches of food to save on your energy usage as well as wasted ingredients. Making large batches of pasta dishes or curry and freezing them will not only be better for you but it will allow you to spend less time after a tough day at work deciding what to eat. Making batches of food will save you money, time, and will also allow you to start making healthier choices in your every day diet as you work toward that summer body!
