5 Effective Ways To Save Money This Year

You could have been a millionaire in 2023, but you ended up dashing half of the money to buying data – me and you, the same! Now after doing Dorime inside Club during the festive season, your bank account balance has turned red, and worse still, you don’t have any savings to fall back on. If this resonates with you, keep reading.

Well, Welcome to January, new year, new you, right? But what about your wallet? Let’s face it, saving money can feel like the hardest thing, but still necessary.  Here are 5  sure ways to build your savings and cash out massively this 2024:

1. Know where your Naira goes.

You wouldn’t build a house without a blueprint, would you? The same goes for your money. Track your spending for a month, even jot it down on your phone. You’ll be surprised where those little expenses add up.

2. Chop off the unnecessary.

We all have that one friend who always orders extra fries. Be the friend who says “Nah, I’m good.” Look for things you can cut out, like it’s not every weekend you “Netflix and Chill”, sometimes go outside and watch the sunset. Every Naira saved is a Naira earned!

3. Befriend the piggy bank (or maybe a fancy bank app).

Time to ditch the shoebox and find a safe place for your savings. On the other hand, a high-interest savings account should be your new best friend. Avoid borrowing from financial institutions, unless you have a very sure means of paying back. No bank account? No worries! A trusty piggy bank under your bed is a classic for a reason.

4. Small chops, big results.

Don’t try to change everything at once. Start small, like cooking at home instead of eating out every day. Those 500 Naira saved add up faster than you think! Remember, even the mightiest iroko tree started as a tiny seed.

5. Celebrate your wins!

Saving money is hard work, so pat yourself on the back! Hit your savings goal? Treat yourself to something small, like that new pair of slippers you’ve been eyeing. Keeping things fun will keep you motivated on your savings journey.

Remember, it’s all about making smart choices and taking control of your money. With a little effort and these tips, you’ll be saying goodbye to empty pockets and hello to a brighter financial future!
