Web Hits: How to Save More Money

Save More Money; Richel Goes Places

Web Hits will be a series of posts containing the interesting/useful links I have seen while scrounging the World Wide Web. Each one will have a specific theme and today will be all about money.

If you have seen my life goals post, I have listed my desire to travel and that is one expensive goal. I’ve been saving up for it ever since I started working last January and I’m almost done with my financial goal for this year!

Below are some of the links of webpages/websites that I have used and is still is using as reference and tips on how I can save/earn as high as I could possibly can.

  1. 33 Best Websites to Make Money Online and Work from Home. This blog post by Aileen is forever bookmarked on my Chrome. The posts contains exactly what the title says: 33 best websites to make money online. It’s perfect for those looking for extra part-time jobs or full-time freelancers. What I love about this post is how everything is so detailed that you don’t have to try every site to know which one will suit you. Just reading Aileen’s post will give you a glimpse on whether you are fit for that website or not.
  2. 50 Ways I Saved (A Lot) of Money To Travel The World. This blog post by Brooke contains details on how she started her fund to travel the world. I know I’m doing the same things for the same reason. You can do it for a different reason, that’s cool, too. Here she lists the littlest things she has done that saves big bucks in the long run – like saying no to expensive coffee and charging your phone at work. You can see how this little things can really up your savings and if you do follow these small things, you can also make your lifestyle cheaper yet not any less fun. That one is also on my goals for this year so I’m glad I saw that blog post of hers!
  3. How To Save Money: 100 Great Tips to Get You Started. If I follow every single tip on this web page, I’d be saving at leastPHP150,000 per year with my current salary. This is  more specific details on this than the link above. Since they gave out 100 freaking tips, do yourself a favor and at least do 10% of them. We should really stop caring about our “social status” because that only lasts as long as there’s no new iPhones out in the market. Learning how to save money? That’s a skill you’ll be forever grateful for.
  4. The Year I Embraced Minimalism and Completed a Yearlong Shopping Ban. This blog post by Cait is really inspiring to me. She challenge herself to a year-long shopping ban! How crazy is that? A whole year? I’m not even much of a shopper but I can’t last in two months! She stopped buying things just because they are cute or in. She just sticks to necessity and that’s it. She saved more than $3,000 because of this. She also managed to pay off her huge students loans in a few years. Cait’s whole blog should be on this list. And another thing, she decided to extend her shopping ban to another year! Kudos, Cait!
  5. The First Thing You Should Focus on Starting Your Journey to Financial Freedom. This one is a short blog post by Lianne, the author of The Wise Living. This is also something I should re-read a lot. It’s so easy to say that we want to save money but are we really dedicated to it? That is what the post is all about. Re-evaluting what is really important to you financially.

Those are the few articles that sticked out to me regarding money. I might add more to this in the future. God knows I can never have  enough references/ inspiring stories/ tips so I can remind myself not to spend money just because I have it.

What do you do to save up?

      You’re welcome, Dice! I’m an impulse buyer when it comes to food and cute notebooks. Learning about financials helped me ease that up a bit. I hope it helps you, too. 🙂

    Wow, very few bloggers I know talk about finances! Specifically, financial goals. Little did we know how important this is. Thanks for this post Richel, will definitely check those links. 🙂

      I know it’s kind of a taboo subject but I love talking about finances! I believe it’s something everyone should talk about to learn from each other. Thanks, Eva! Let me know if you manage to drop by any other useful links about it! 🙂

        Sure! Have you encountered Robert Kiyosaki’s books? He’s a best-selling financial author. His books are real eye-openers. My boyfriend and I tries to collect his works to get inspired financially. And one good thing also, if you subscribe to his website, he gives free e-books (I think every month) and notifies you about it. He’s coming this November here in the Philippines (a very rare opportunity) together with other financial speakers, already got my ticket and excited to attend! Lol sorry this is lengthy.

          I’m trying to stay away from bookstores to save money! I impulsively buy books if I have cash on hand, lol. I’ll definitely check out his website and try to see if I can go to that event (if tickets are still available). Thanks so much for the info, Eva!

            No problem! Here’s the link about the event: http://richdadphilippines.com/events/robert-kiyosaki-live-in-manila/

            Sadly, the ticket is really an investment. But if you could, I hope you’d come too! 🙂

              Oooh. So he wrote that book! And the tickets really are an investment. Maybe I’ll stick to the books/pdfs for this year. Hopefully they’ll come back next time when I’m more financially prepared. 🙂
