Last week, I wrote about a way that you could easily provide yourself with an extra $1,000 worth of cash in your account by simply re-structuring your television habits. Many of you messaged back to me expressing success in having done that very thing and that sparked some conversation about other ways to practice frugality.
During these conversations, it occurred to me that, while living frugally at home can be a good way to increase your savings account, it’s not even the easiest way to do so. In my opinion, the easiest way to increase your savings is simply to make more money. However, being new to this game, I decided to lean on the writings of someone else in order to unpack some tips for the workplace. So, I find myself again deferring to the wisdom of Trent Hamm. Last week he posted up this piece of content listing seven pieces of advice that can aid an individual along in the process of gathering up the elusive extra dollars.
I have used Hamm’s content on this blog fairly frequently and find his advice very helpful. I think you’ll enjoy this article, especially if you are in the process of trying to improve your financial situation, either at your current job or by creating new employment.
