Simple Savings is a website that is designed to do, well, just that. Save!
Here's a little bit of what they have to say:-
Most people pay too much money for things but never realise it, so they are always behind. They are always in debt and continually playing catch-up. It is a pretty horrible time-deprived way to live.
They do have a 'vault' and you can pay $47 to access all the tips and tricks members have put in there, but you can also browse all the other things they have for free, and learn a few things along the way just by doing that.
What I love is the monthly challenges they have in their "ATTACK YOUR DEBTS MONTH BY MONTH":-
January was 'Find a Better Deal' on your service providers for eg home phone, insurance, internet or credit card.
February was 'Find Time'. Finding spare time to then be able to think about what you're purchasing.
March is 'No Spend Month'.
Here's the blurb about this month.
Sometimes we need a big jolt to shake up our spending habits. So here's one for you! Your challenge for March is not to buy anything non-essential. The ONLY things you can buy this month are pure essentials such as basic food and prior bills. Ask yourself at the end of day, did you buy any non-essentials today? If not, tick the day as a success, well done!
I'll add the new challenge for each month to my blog, if only to keep myself reminded of what's in store.
