How to save money 2024 !

Here’s some ways to save !!

1. Did you sign up for a 🆓trial ? keep it 🆓 by remembering to CANCEL❌ and setting an earlier reminder.

2. Don’t be hesitant to bring LEFTOVERS 🥗 into the office; they will save you more money than a meal deal every day!

3. Don’t sleep on debts; if you owe money, make sure to pay it off as quickly as possible so that you can spend and save guilt-free. 🛒🛍

4. Rather than transferring from savings and being surprised when money is taken out, automate the frequent bills such as the phone. 💸💸

5. Before heading out or shopping, see whether there are any available promotional coupons or vouchers. If it’s with family or young person, remind them to bring Young Scot Cards & Student Cards. 🧒🚸

6. Cash makes it easier to budget than online, breaking £20 note is harder than just tapping your card. Take out some cash instead 🏧💳
