Finding seemingly-insignificant savings here and there might not seem like a great way to save money, which is why many people don't bother with such a tactic. When individual savings are grouped over time, however, serious reductions in spending can become apparent. That's why, if you're looking to save money, you should consider making these three small changes as you go about your daily life.
1. Drink more water.
You can save money both at home and in restaurants by simply drinking more water. Why? Because water is a very inexpensive beverage—especially when that water is coming straight from a tap. That's why most restaurants provide water free of charge to their patrons upon request.
2. Pay attention to your lighting.
To save money on your energy bills, make sure the last person to leave a room always turns out the lights. For additional savings, take advantage of natural lighting whenever possible by pulling back the curtains. If opening your curtains will allow you to turn off a lamp, then do so and enjoy the free lighting.
3. Make coffee at home.
While buying coffee each day might not feel like a big expense, over time, all those coffee purchases end up costing quite a bit of money. To save money, make your coffee at home and take it with you. As coffee is substantially cheaper when made at home, this small change can lead to big savings.
