These days many people have debt, which means that we are all trying to save money wherever and however we can. In many cases, this means finding multiple ways to make use of things we already have or adopting better consumption habits. By exercising a little frugality, you can save anywhere from a few dollars a day to hundreds every month. Consider these simple ways to save money at home:

Lower Your Electric Bill

A great option for reducing household power consumption is installing a programmable thermostat. This allows you to easily control or pre-set the temperature of your home while you are away so that you don’t waste money cooling or heating an empty house. Subsequently, it can also be set to ensure that the temp is comfortable when you are at home. On a much simpler scale, you can also take easy steps like unplugging electronics when they are not in use. Remember, even the smaller attempts to reducing consumption can significantly affect your electricity bills!

Become a Cord-Cutter

Do away with your cable subscription. Instead of paying for an expensive cable TV package, consider the options for watching your favorite shows online. It’s quite likely that they are available through one of the many online streaming services. As another more extreme alternative, you could consider other enjoyable activities or hobbies that don’t require cable or the Internet at all! By doing away with cable, you can save a significant amount of money each month.

Stop Eating Out

Get out of the habit of paying for restaurant food. While convenient, eating out is considerably more expensive than eating at home. Not only can you prepare your own breakfasts and dinners, but you can easily pack leftovers for lunches as well. We suggest meal-planning and investing in a slow cooker if you don’t want to spend your evenings cooking when you get home from work.

Stop Buying Bottled Water

Bottled water constitutes one of the biggest wastes of money today. The reality is that tap water in most parts of the country is perfectly safe to drink. If drinking from the public water supply is out of the question for you, invest in a quality water filter. Even if you only spend a few dollars per week on bottled water, the savings from using a filter will be dramatic over time.

These are just some of the easiest ways to save money at home every month. Controlling your spending can help you to save up for long-term goals, repay your debts and build up a  savings account.
