Keep Your Cash, Enjoy Your Life
Written by Christopher Haymon
We all understand the importance of saving money, but we also know that we have to enjoy our lives in the here and now while we can. We also have to balance work, family, and our health. It’s a challenge for most of us, for sure, but there are many ways you can maintain your net worth without sacrificing your health and happiness.
Today’s tips can help!
- Rent your formalwear.
Do you have a party, function, or event that leaves you with the need to dress to the nines? If so, consider renting a beautiful party dress or jumpsuit from One Wear Freedom. By renting, you can save potentially hundreds of pounds off the cost of an outfit you may only wear once. Plus, you’ll enjoy the added benefit of not cluttering up your closet!
- Cook in season.
Have you ever wondered why some fruits and vegetables were more expensive in January than in June? This is because, most often, your grocery buys these foods locally when they are in season instead of from other countries. Get to know what’s available seasonally. The vegetarian society explains that May is a great month for strawberries, lettuce, and radishes (all the makings of a fabulous strawberry salad) while September brings sweetcorn, cabbage, and tomatoes to your plate.
- Splurge where you need to.
Although it might sound like a conflict of interest, sometimes spending more money can actually save you money in the long run. Grocery delivery service is a great example of this. When you order your groceries online, it’s easier to stick to a budget, and you might make more conscientious purchases.
- Keep your health information close at hand.
Healthcare costs in the UK have jumped tremendously since 2019, according to data compiled by Statista. As an individual, you may be able to save some money by keeping your medical records when you visit a new healthcare provider. This may save you from having to undergo a test that you’ve already taken. A quick tip here is to access your online health portal and download that webpage from Chrome as a PDF; this way, you can show your new provider your records directly from your phone, even if you don’t have access to Wi-Fi.
- Use a health app.
One of the best ways to take care of your health can be downloaded (often for free) and kept in your pocket. Prevention lists many different health apps that you can use to exercise, monitor your menstrual cycle, and lose weight.
- Make money by showing other people how to save.
There are many different ways to monetize your healthy habits. You might, for example, coach people on how to take care of their own health. Another idea is to start a blog and register with brands you love as an affiliate marketing agent. This puts you on a direct path to other consumers who might be interested in what you have to say. If you go this route, make sure to write a business plan so that you have a game plan on how you structure your business, how you plan to make money, what you’ll do with it, and even how you plan to market yourself.
There are many ways that you can take control of your health, and most of them don’t require a hefty investment. Give yourself permission to enjoy your life. You never know when something as simple as showing your doctor a PDF of your health records, downloading a free app, or deciding where to splurge might save (or even make) you money.
