Finding yourself in a pickle?
Apr 12, 2022
Are you looking for ways to save money or build a nest egg? With the ever-increasing rise in living costs, many New Zealanders are struggling to make ends meet and getting ahead can feel out of reach.
Whether you’ve fallen on difficult times, looking for ways to increase your rainy-day fund or even saving for a house deposit – there are some simple solutions that can make that will help you save and feel more in control of your money.
Here are some tips and tricks that will help you manage your money and get ahead.
Track your spending habits
When budgeting, it’s important to know where your money is going and how it’s working for you. To gain a better understanding of your budget it’s helpful to track your day-to-day spending habits – this could be with a simple money diary or there are plenty of online tools and apps you can utilise.
This will help you to make more informed decisions when it comes to budgeting, allowing you to see any areas you might be able to cut back and make savings.
Create a budget
Once you’ve figured out where your money is going, it’s time to build a budget. Budgeting doesn’t need to be difficult or technical. Simply start by figuring out your household income and look at how much is going out each week or month – from there you can see if you have any leftover or need to look at ways to tighten your outgoings.
Don’t forget to include subscription services like Netflix and Spotify or any other regular automatic direct debits.
A good budget will help you feel more confident and in control of your cash flow. You won’t be left wondering where your money is going each pay cycle and instead you will be able to get the best out of your income.
Add extra rooms to your household
Rent costs are on the rise and finding an affordable home that can fit your whole family can be difficult. If your living arrangement is feeling cramped a portable cabin from RoomMate Cabins is a fantastic solution to quickly and easily gain some extra space at your place!
Maybe you have a teenager ready to have a room of their own, need an office or workspace, or just want an additional living area for the family to hang out – there are so many options for how you could use a portable cabin.
Move back in with your parents or relatives
Now we understand this isn’t a viable option for everyone, but if possible, moving home with parents or family members can be a great money-saving solution!
