    Money Saving Tips

     

    1. Set a Budget

     

    It is very important to set a budget so you know where every dollar you have coming in, is going out to. The first month or so will be a little difficult if you don't really know how much you spend each month on things like groceries, eating out, gas, clothing etc. The easiest way to set your budget and track your spending is with a budget tracker. Mint.com offers a free version that can help get you started AND get you organized. You can also use Quickbooks or just create your own for FREE using Microsoft Excel or Google Docs. Setting up a budget and tracking your spending will help you know exactly where you can make cuts and possible help save yourself hundreds of dollars each month.

     

     

    2. Save for an Emergency (they do happen)

     

    Debit expert and financial guru Dave Ramsey has developed what he calls Seven Baby Steps. These steps are designed to help you eliminate debit and create a stable financial future. One build on YOUR money, not on top of debit which can create issues down the road. The first baby step is to save up for an emergency. If you put away $1000 as quickly as you can by selling something, working overtime, skipping eating out for a month, whatever it is you can do to save that money do it. This creates a safety net for when emergencies arise. This way you can pay cash instead of creating even more debt. ONLY use it for an emergency!

     

     

    3. Use Coupons

     

    Using coupons and coupon codes can save you lots of money on the things you buys everyday. At CharmingChick we post many of our coupon codes that can help you save money. There are so many great coupon code websites out there but two of the most popular that we use are RetailMeNot.com and CouponChief.com. If you need to purchase something, always check to see if there is a way you can save money on it first. You can also find discounts on the items you purchase every day like groceries, toiletries, eating out and MUCH more.

     

     

    These three money saving tips are just the beginning. Do you have a great money saving tips you'd like to share We'd LOVE to hear it.

    Holiday Shopping Tips

     

    1. Make a List -- and Check it Twice

    The first thing you'll want to do before you start your holiday shopping is to make a list of all the people you would like to buys Christmas gifts this year. If you have ideas about items that you would like to purchase and an estimated price. If you love creating spreadsheets, this task can be right up your alley. No only can you keep track of who you need to buy for and what you have purchased, you can also keep track of packages you need to mail and all kinds of other things.

     

    2. Create a Budget

     

    After you have your holiday shopping list together figure out an overall budget. As much as possible try to set aside money throughout the year so you won't be paying for your Christmas gifts all the way until next Christmas. After you come up with an overall budget, you can assign a certain amount to each person on your list .The BEST idea is to set aside the money for Christmas gifts aside into a separate account that you can access when you set out to go shopping.

     

    3. Shop Sales and Look for Coupon Codes

     

    You don't have to wait until "Black Friday" to start your Holiday shopping and save big. In fact retailers are starting to offer amazing deals now.
