Grab a toonie from the savings jar! That's how we don't save in this house, and I am sure we are not alone. The jar is there, and when the kids need a loonie for PJ day at school, or I want a coffee on my way to skating lessons, we grab the change out of the jar. So much for saving, or even having a goal associated with that jar, it's just there...
We all want to save for something, no matter how big or small, but how often do we actually set a value and timeline to that savings goal? Or how often do we grab from those savings, to use elsewhere?
What if I told you there is an app that will challenge you to be more aware of your transactions, to cut back on extra spending, and automatically saves that money in a virtual money jar? It is here, and it is so much fun!
Quber is the ideal app to help you change your spending habits, set savings goals and watch them materialize through actual goal specific savings on a timeline. (more…)
Unplug Everything! Well, within reason. I know in my home there are many items that could be unplugged, especially at night. The energy used by appliances and devices being left plugged in, while not in use, is referred to as Phantom Loads. (more…)
Are you a coffee or tea drinker?
Cut back on coffee or tea...
I know it is not easy to do, but one less coffee a day would save you about $700 per year (if you buy them at a coffee shop).
Can’t quit coffee all together?
Instead of spending $2 - $3 per cup at your favourite coffee shop, try brewing coffee at home. You could save yourself thousands of dollars per year.
Home brewing cuts your cost to less than $0.25 per cup in most cases.
Just one way to cut costs that really add up over the year!
Happy Friday 🙂
Here is a recipe for this week's deal on cauliflower!
We picked up 4 heads of cauliflower last night for $1.50 each. Here is one recipe I have made so far. We love cauliflower and this is just one way to prep it.
