A brand new year has arrived and one of your top resolutions should be to save as much money as you can this year. We are heading into uncertain financial times, so it’s best to be ready for everything. Read ahead for your ultimate frugal living guide for 2017:
1. Take the Train or Bus
Owning a car is expensive. You have to pay insurance and also gas can eat away at your monthly budget. There’s a cheaper way to get about: public transportation. It’s not as bad as everyone says. Also, subway trains are actually much faster than going by car. You won’t have to drive yourself, or be stuck in traffic forever when you take the bus or train. And at the end of each month, you will have saved hundreds of dollars.
2. Go on Local Vacations
You have to spend thousands of dollars to travel overseas or even to go out of state. You can enjoy equally gratifying vacations by traveling locally and in-state. If you are strapped for cash right now, travel within a 200-mile radius of your home to enjoy a budget vacation that is just as thrilling as going to the Maldives.
