Tips For Saving Money And Lowering Your Expenses
Like most young people, it is likely that you are struggling with money and finding it difficult to make ends meet at the end of the month but with a few simple changes in your life, you might find that you can save a few thousands on the long term. One trick is to try and budget your expenses for the month. You do not need to eat fancy food every day. You can eat simple food that is both tasty and nutritious if you are creative and if you do a little research. As an example, one thing that you can eat is lentils which cost next to nothing and will sustain you and give you a lot of protein.
Be creative with your recipes
It is a good idea for you to be as creative as possible with the food that you make so that you can make food with the products that are on offer in your local grocery store instead of focusing on a few ingredients that you may not get on offer.
Most supermarkets in Dubai will have various things on offer and you will even find certain things going extremely cheap when the supermarket believes that the best buy date is getting closer. With processed food this can be dangerous but if you buy products that are whole food like fresh vegetables and fruits, you should be able to get perfectly edible food for a very low price because the supermarket is not allowed to sell the food after a certain date. You can get fruits, vegetables and various other ingredients for a few cents when the best buy date is a day away and you can use this food to make delicious and healthy food for your family.
Cut down on side dishes
You do not need to have a variety of side dishes with every meal that you eat. You can make a main meal with lentils and vegetables while skipping the chips or the fried side dish to not only save money but also cut down on quite a bit of fat in the process. It is far healthier, easier to make one dish that is complete with nutrients than to make many things because your kids want it. You will need to train your kids to eat simpler meals made of simpler ingredients while cutting out all of the junk food and processed food which is what costs the most amount of money in our monthly expenses.
