Disadvantages: There's nothing you can lose
Saving money? Are you a natural saver? Or are you someone who find it hard to save money? No matter which type of person you are, saving money is actually easier than you think!
Don't treat saving money as a task, treat it as a game and the reward of your game is $! Isn't it great? In that way, you will enjoy a lot more in the progress! So what do I do?
Think before you buy
I got this super saving tip from my sister: are you going to use this product for more than 3 times? If yes, buy it. If not, put it down.
It is an extremely useful method to stop impulsive buying, especially when buying clothes. Don't buy a skirt or a pair of pants just because it's on sale. Think whether you are going to wear it for 3 times, if so, buy them. Because it is likely that it is a good bargain.
Use up everything
Make sure that you use up everything you buy. Look around, are there many half-filled bottles of moisturisers, shampoo, hair conditioners? Use them up before you buy new ones! If you are using a product contained in a plastic container, make sure that you shake it a few times before you throw them away. Usually by shaking the bottle, you will be able to use the product for a few more times.
There are still other ways to use up the products if you don't like them. For example, toothpaste is a good cleaner for water taps. Your water tap will become shiny again after rubbing it with toothpaste. Your shampoo can be used to clean your make up brushes... do some research and you will find unlimited uses for your unwanted products lying around!
Share with your friends
Thinking about getting a new deep fryer / juicer but don't know whether they are good? Of course, come to dooyoo and see what people say about them. However, you may also want to ask around between your friends, colleagues and neighbours and see if they have got them. They may be able to lend it to you for a short period and you can try them before actually buying them?
If you have anything you no longer use, why not give it to your friends (or lend to them)? It's money saving for everyone!
Find someone who enjoy saving
It's always easier to achieve something if you have someone to share your joy with! Talk to your friends (or put up a review here in dooyoo if you find a good deal) who also enjoy saving, then you will soon find out that saving is fun! You will soon find yourself sharing with everyone every single tip you discover on saving!
Summary: Start the saving game now!
