8 Actionable Ways To Save $500 A Month

Most of us make way more money than we actually need to survive. Unfortunately, many of us get sucked into spending out of boredom, habit, or a lack of financial planning. 

Fortunately, we have put together eight different ways to save $500 a month easily! 

Automate Your Saving

To guarantee you save $500 a month, use the strategy of automatically paying yourself first. Most people do their best to limit their spending during the month and save whatever is leftover at the end of the month. 

Cancel Your Gym Membership Due To Covid

During the pandemic, many gyms have been forced to close. However, many of the gyms that closed have also continued to charge monthly membership rates -unless the subscriber manually canceled the memberships.

Restructuring a high-interest student loan can be a great way to save money each month. Many students obtain their student loans as young adults, which results in a higher than an average interest rate.

Switch To A Streaming Service

Cable bills are notorious for slowly increasing your rates month over month until you are paying hundreds of dollars for channels you never watch. Rather than paying over $100 a month for a few select channels you actually view, ditch cable, and “cut the cord.”

After three hours of work, on my own time, which also helped me get a bunch of old stuff out of my house, I was able to bring in an extra $140! Don’t underestimate the price someone is willing to pay for your old items such as clothes, furniture, books, and toys!
