Here is Boylin’s Self Store’s comprehensive list of top money saving tips to see you through 2022 and beyond!

Due to the current cost of living crisis placing huge pressure on household finances, with energy bills, mortgages, fuel and food all seeing sharp cost increases, Boylin’s Self Store are determined to help you save money in any way that we can this year!

In Order to Save Money in 2022 You Need More than Manifesting; You need a Concrete Plan of Action!

  1. Make a proper spending plan and budget

Step one is to make a concrete spending plan that you will actually stick to. Overspending is often the result of not keeping track of how much you have going in and out of your bank account.

There are lots of useful calculators online that calculate your take-home pay, taking into account tax, pensions and student loans.

From there you can work out how much you can be spending (and saving) each month.

Budget each area of spending, allocating the appropriate amount of money to each area.

Try and be strict in the first few months to get started and see the instant results of how much you save!

  1. Get an app that helps you to save

There’s pretty much an app to help you with anything you can think of these days!

These apps are specifically designed to make your life easier, so take full advantage of them!

More and more apps are being designed to help people save more, including Plum and Chip. Banks are getting involved too, with digital lenders Monzo and Starling launching new features to get customers to squirrel more away, so check them out and save yourself some money!

Cut down on Your Outgoings in 2022!

  1. Try and cut your energy costs

Working from home has probably pushed up your energy and gas usage and therefore your bills. At the same time energy bills have increased substantially in recent months.

Instead you can use less in the first place by turning off appliances that are on standby, replacing old devices with new, more energy efficient ones, and washing clothes at a lower temperature.

There are other upgrades you could make, such as installing double glazing or getting a new boiler.

  1. Cancel subscriptions you aren’t using

So many of us are guilty of this one, purchasing a subscription and not using it very often, hopelessly watching as the transaction leaves our bank account each month.

Do you really need a Netflix, Amazon Prime and Disney+ account? Pick one or two and cut the 3rd one loose and reap the benefits from that extra £7.99 a month that you save!

You Don’t Just have to Save Money, You can MAKE Money Easily this Year!
