Five Tried and True Savings Secrets (from Real Q Link Customers)
At Q Link Wireless, we love hearing what our customers are up to. This month, we asked our Facebook fans to share their secret tips for making ends meet, and now we’re spilling the beans!
Here are five tried and true secrets that real Q Link customers use every day to save money:
1. Enjoy fresh vegetables!
Even if you live in an apartment, this is a really easy way to get fresh vegetables that are so expensive at the grocery store. Find a sunny spot by your door or on a windowsill to grow tomatoes, lettuce, and herbs. As you pick them, more will grow!
2. Get moving!
Pick up a bike for cheap by checking local garage sales or Craigslist ads. Be sure to take good care of your bike so it lasts longer! Riding a bike, or even walking, can save you the cost of bus or train fare, as well as expensive maintenance and gas for a car.
3. Cut the coffee (while you’re out).
Coffee is a typical start to the day for most people, but at $3-$5 per cup, coffee shops are expensive! Invest in a travel mug, and then make coffee at home. No coffee pot? Make your coffee in a pot on the stove! Just boil the water, take it off the burner, and add your coffee grounds. Stir the grounds in, and then let the coffee sit for 5 minutes before you slowly pour the coffee into a cup. Pour carefully or use a mesh strainer to keep the grounds out of your cup.
4. Short and sweet
We often don’t think about how much we spend on little things. If you don’t spend money on unnecessary items like a new pair of sneakers, pricey snacks, or the latest nail polish color, you’ll have a bit extra to spend on things you really DO need, like groceries, baby diapers, and medical care.
5. Finally, save big with Q Link!
