Now that the holidays are right around the corner, you may want to start saving money to splurge on holiday gifts. 


Building good money habits is a skill that will last you a lifetime, and while there are so many ways to approach this, like, for example, setting up a savings account, here are some immediate and incredibly easy ways for you to save money right now. You may not realize it, especially if you’re not conscious of your spending, but savings money here and there will truly benefit you in the long run (and it’s super easy!)


Use weather insulators to save on heating costs this winter

This is such a simple thing to do. You can very easily buy weather insulators that cost less than $10 and put them wherever you have windows in your house. This way, you are less inclined to use your heater, making it easy for you to save on electricity and gas bills this winter.


Order your groceries or schedule them for pickup in advance

This is a great way to cut down on impulse purchases when you’re grocery shopping. Now that we’re going out less, we are more inclined to splurge on groceries. If you make an order for delivery or curbside pickup, you are more likely to get only what you need and avoid those traps laid all around grocery stores. You may not notice, but a dollar here and there adds up to a huge grocery shopping bill.


Use tools such as Google’s “Price Insights” to know when the best time is to buy a product

That time of year is here where we’re more likely to buy things online. Using tools such as Google “Price Insights” will help you determine whether you should wait or not to buy an item. These tools make it so you know the fluctuations in the price of an item.


Unsubscribe from retail subscriptions so you don’t get tempted to buy things you don’t need

This is simple enough and can be achieved with a couple of clicks.
