There are undoubtedly a lot of everyday ways through which we can all endeavour to save money, but trying to save money in this way can start to feel like a bit of a chore. After all, when you’re out shopping perhaps, extensively hunting for bargains can take a lot of the fun out of the process. Carrying a notepad along to try and stick to a loosely scribbled budget is also not much fun either, so while you definitely still want to save money in any way you can, there are ways of making sure you do without it feeling like a mandatory assignment.

Peering Loudly Through the Shop Windows

Well it doesn’t have to be done literally, but basically when you sort of announce to the world what you’re specifically looking to buy, or indeed that you have some money to spend, you open yourself up for some sizeable savings on good deals and bargains.

Yes, I’ve had some issues with it myself, but basically it’s a matter of controlling what you share about yourself. If you’re active on social networks for instance, advertisers are lining up to offer you their best deal, with the hope that you’ll buy from them over their competitors.

It works very simply; against every last wish one of my sons, I too have a Facebook account, with very limited privacy settings though.Well I spared him the possible quandary of having to consider accepting my friend request, so I didn’t send him one, but what I do find using such a platform extremely useful for is putting my purchasing intentions out there and then having the best deals find me. Just having discussions with my friends about where to buy something at the best value not only usually leads me to some super savings, but also attracts great offers by way of advertising matched to my requirements.

So while I don’t share other personal and sensitive information such as where I’m having lunch or indeed what activity I’m currently occupying myself with, sharing what I intend to spend some money on puts me in line for some great savings. That’s what I like to call “peeping loudly through shop-windows” as it almost always results in someone trying to offer me a much better deal.Avoid last-minute buying

Avoid Last-Minute Buying

Buying in advance is one of the best ways to save money in what will always feel like a “natural” way. This goes way beyond Christmas

Buying in advance is one of the best ways to save money in what will always feel like a “natural” way. This goes way beyond Christmas shopping, when retailers are all too aware that their hot inventory will fly off the shelves in-spite of prices which take full advantage of just that. Buying in advance also entails shopping at what would otherwise be perceived to be awkward hours.Shop when you’re under no pressure to come away with whatever it is you’re looking for and you could be in for some good savings. This even applies when buying from informal establishments such as open-air markets. If there are eight other shoppers waiting to hand their money over to the vendor, what incentive does that vendor have to perhaps slip you a discount just because you took the time to make some general conversation?
