INFOGRAPHIC - Simple ways to Save with Minimal Effort

Hello friends!


I know I keep talking about the importance of saving money... it's kind of my thing at this point.

This week I have decided to make an infographic to show just how easy it can be to save anywhere between a few dollars to upwards of 100 dollars each month by doing nothing more than cutting out unnecessary or easy to DIY items. Once you get used to the changes, you won't notice the difference and as a bonus, you will have more money in your account to put toward the things you really want.

  1. I loved reading this. I am always spending my money on pointless stuff. I love getting coffee out but I am definitely going to start having a coffee indoors instead. I always take my own water and lunches to work too!

    1. It is amazing how much it saves. I think it cut about $125-150 off my monthly budget. The big one was the coffee, especially in Uni. I would get one every day as I went to class. One day I did the math and very quickly decided to invest in a cheap coffee machine. Even buying expensive "snob" coffee, I still come out WAY ahead.

      That said, definitely had Starbucks last night...

      None of us are perfect!

  2. I love your infographics!! I think the only one I couldn't follow is not drinking alcohol when I'm out.

    1. You don't have to cut it all out! Just one drink lol but seriously - we all have our things we aren't willing to give up and that's totally cool. For me, it will always be nice bottles of wine, for you, going out for drinks with friends.

      Thanks for the kind words on the infographics. I love how they deliver the info and frankly, are very Pinnable.

      Let me know if there is an infographic you would like to see.

  3. I was so surprised by the coffee and lunches! I love to have a tea now and again from Costa, and it does add up. The lunches even more so - thanks again for such a good info graphic! Definitely thinking about that the next time I go to spend my money

    1. Thanks Sophie. It can be scary how things add up. When I worked at a coffee shop, I used to bring home a pastry or two a week, or even a salad. Even with the discount (50% off) it was adding up to $25/ pay. I can't imagine what it would have been if I had to pay for the coffee.

      I'm glad that people are loving the infographics. They can be a bit of a pain when the computer decides it doesn't want to play nice, but it's all worth it if people like the info.

    1. It's those little things that really come in handy... and really add up. I remember being shocked at the cost of coffee alone! I was spending over $10/week more than I needed to be spending. That made me look at other parts of my spending habits, then talking to my mom (the true budgeting goddess) and in the end, cut out a lot of frills!

      Good luck with saving, and if you have any questions or anything you would like covered, just ask!

  5. I need to start getting serious about saving and these little things will definitely help that, especially as I do have a habit of spending on pointless stuff or books lol!

    1. A book is rarely pointless! But I agree. It's hard taking the first step, but once you do, it's awesome.

  6. I spent like $10 on a really nice double walled aluminum water bottle and it has been worth every penny - makes it super easy to bring water along with me rather than throwing money away buying it wherever I go.

    1. I had a great one too. It seems to have gone missing in my travels but even with that, it paid for itself tenfold before it went away... and I had a backup water bottle, so all is well!
