I hear it all the time , I’ve seen it on social media.The majority of society today struggles financially from month to month. I’m revisiting my #SaverSeries – How we cut costs.Our lives gets complacent , we relax , we slip and our finances take the knock and we find ourselves going round in circles financially and our lives and families get affected.
A few years ago I really set out on a mission to get us back on track financially it was mentally and physical exhausting to police our finances.
I was sitting this morning having breakfast and I switched on the tv and the Netflix and it got me thinking once again about how we have saved so much since un-subscribing from our local satellite channels (DSTV) and I thought it a great time to revisit our saving strategies seeing as May is the month we made the move to Netflix.To date doing a quick lets-not-get-to-mathematical sum I’m sure we have saved close to mmm lets see…..R 24 000.00 holy smokes.
Here is the blog post I did back then …. #SaversSeries
Savings like these have helped us so much each and every year.As our responsibilities have also increased with school fees , scary medical aid fees and everything else that comes with family life.(Let me not get started on how in the last two months since the 15% implementation our grocery bill has gone up by 50%).
I’m always on the look out for ways to save and cut costs.What have you done lately to save?Let me and everyone else know because we can always use a little help.
I’ll be posting a few other posts on ways I try to save.
FYI: It shocks me every-time we go visit family and watch TV that the same episodes and movies a still showing,there has been an improvement but definitely note one that would have be rushing back to get subscribed once again.Happy with my Netflix !
