I finally created my first infographic.
I’ve been sharing other infographics for years, and always wanted to create one but never had the time. I found the time!
This graphic was inspired by an article I wrote a couple years ago.
Here’s the info and the graphic:
- Consider cutting your home phone. If you still have one, it may be unnecessary. Do you really need it?
- Look at your cell phone plan. Do you really need all of that? Only pay for what you use.
- Look at other providers. Compare plans among providers.
- Reevaluate your internet plan. Shop around and look at all your options. You’d be surprised how similar the speeds of different internet plans are. It’s not always worth it to pay for the fastest one.
- Cut back on eating out. Set a limit. Once per week, once per month or whatever works for you, but limit it.
- Cook at home. I know, this is basically your only option if you’re not eating out all the time, but it’s worth mentioning. Cooking and eating meals at home can be great family activities and it’s a way to save some money.
- Use what you have. Use the food you already bought. Don’t let it go to waste. Use the last week each month to make meals that clean out your fridge and your cabinets.
- Use coupons when it makes sense. Don’t spend 15 hours each week clipping coupons just to save $25, but some coupons are worth clipping. Be discerning and learn which coupons help the most.
- Stop paying for drinks. Drink water. It’s a much healthier alternative to sodas and juice. Plus, it’s free from the tap! If your water tastes bad, find a good filter. If it’s really terrible, you may need this reverse osmosis filter.
- Track all your food. Keep up with how much you spend on food. It’s much cheaper to bring your lunch to work, rather than eating out for convenience. And track every little snack or drink you buy at convenience stores. It adds up!
Let me know what you think about the graphic, in the comments!
