I am all about pinching pennies, cornering quarters, and deleting dollars from my expenses. The way economies are going, I’m going to need all the help I can get to save up for a rainy day, and the skies are getting cloudy.
That’s why I’m a ninja in the grocery store. I price match, bulk up when things are on sale, and will always make sure I’m getting the lowest price.
That’s why for our upcoming family getaway to Florida, I entered contests to scoop free hotels along the way and capitalized on my WestJet card to get a flight for $99 and also took advantage of their price drop guarantee when the flight cost dropped.
And I’m saving, saving, saving. We started saving money for the boys the day they were born, and still contribute money every month. While my dad convinced me to go fixed rate when getting my mortgages the past number of years (flexible would have been better), he did convince me to open an RRSP as soon as I had a ‘real job’ and seeing those annual statements coming in the mail the past few weeks has made me smile.
I still have some kinks to work out, but when it comes to my money, I’m at least starting to get my books on track.
That’s how I’m saving money this year, how are you doing it? Zag wants to know.
