Are you trying to figure out how to save money? Things are tough out there right now so trust me, I get it! I have been buckling down a lot on the budget lately and I have embarrassingly discovered that I am spending over $110 each month on random subscriptions. Well, if I’m being honest, my husband is responsible for about 75% of those. So, in order to save money we had a sit down conversation about the fact that we needed to go through the list of subscriptions and cut some of them out.
As it turns out, many of these subscriptions were random trials that we had signed up for and forgotten to cancel. Most of them are less than $5 or $10 so they were easy to not really notice. In case you haven’t figured it out yet, canceling unused subscriptions is the one tip that will help you save a lot of money this year.
