Can you Save a Little to Save a Lot?

Cut costs on the things you don’t need now, to get the most important things you need in the future: kid’s education, house, car, dream vacation, retirement and health care fund.

You can make a fortune by making small changes today.

Do you drink softdrinks? Twice a day? Everyday?
Do you buy hot coffee? Twice a day? Everyday?
Do you smoke? A pack a day? Everyday?
Do you have your hair fixed? If straight, curl it. If curled, straighten it. Every month?
Do you eat junk food?

Think about non-essential sale items. Many buy P 1,000 non-essential sale items per month. Times 12 months is P 12,000.

But if we do not want to completely give up softdrinks or junk food, or cigarettes or non-essential items, maybe we can just cut-down? Half the annual amount is still a lot of money!

Resolve to cut down on a lot of small expenses. Small savings many times, over the days, over the months, over the years will allow you to save a lot of money!
