Five Easy Ways To Save Money

No idea where your money goes? Here are some tips to make it stretch just a tiny bit further.

1. Choose Cheap Clothing Basics If you're buying items like jeans you need to invest in the good brands (the cut and quality are just way better), but for the basics (think: tees, vests, strappy sandals, gym gear) you can totally get away with el cheapo stores. A lot of these products come from the same place (China), so while the price might be vastly different at a more upmarket clothing store, the quality and durability probably aren't.
2. Cough Up For Footwear
3. Make Your Own Lunch
4. Look For Deals
5. Make a List Before You Go Shopping (and Stick To It)
