Life Hack : 5 Ways to Save Money in Kenya
Thinking of smart ways to save money for the future? Here are 5 Ways to get you started:
- Don’t pay for Cable TV or Quit TV altogether
I think we can all say we are familiar with professor Bamba. That guy who tries to convince us not to pay for TV and guess what? He’s right. If you surf the channel long enough you are bound to come across something to watch. Trust me I know and so does Diego and Maria who I stumbled upon. When you think about it what really are you paying for? Movies that are 2 years old and a series that is 1 week late? No thanks.
- Put a standing order with your local mama mboga
Everyone likes to know they will have a certain amount of money each week. That includes your local vendor. By putting a standing order, you save yourself ridiculous price hikes. Alternatively learn to freeze things when they are in season or pickling to preserve them longer
- Hot Deals! Every shilling counts
We all know those hot deals in the supermarkets. If you are flexible, especially when it comes to brands, you can save quite a bit of money. Fine you are only saving 100 bob but if you save 100 per month that’s 1200 in a year. You can buy yourself or your child some cute shoes or you can take your man to Kenchic for a date and reminisce about the good ol’ days. WIN-WIN
- Paying your KPLC bill upfront gets you better rates
This is actually true. It costs more buying in small chunks than buying tokens for the whole month all at once. Why not try it and come back and tell me how much you’ve saved?
- Energy saving bulbs
This is not only a good way to save money but a great way to conserve the environment. So go on and grab yourself a couple of energy saving bulbs and make the world a better place for your children.
