We are all guilty of spending a little more than we should. But it’s different when it’s a one time splurge and when it’s a habit. If you’re someone that just can’t figure out how to minimise your spending, you’re in luck! We asked all of you what your best budgeting tips are – scroll down to read what our followers had to say!
Prioritise According To Your Needs
If there’s one thing that will help all of us save some money, it’s realising what we REALLY need. Make a list according to priority and try weighing the pros and cons of buying the item – will you really be using it that much? If not, you’re better off saving your money buying something more practical for you. This tip by our followers is one we definitely recommend!

‘Buy what you need not what you want!’ – @beena.a.khan
Invest In Good Quality Items
The other key tip that our followers sent in is investing smartly. Buy items that are durable and will last you longer instead of buying cheaper things that you constantly have to replace. This will save you money in the long run!
