If your husband recently lost his job, chances are you're cutting back on your expenses in order to maintain your financial stability. However, this is often easier said than done when you're used to having two sources of income coming into your home. Here are a few tips on how to save money around the house.
1. Be mindful of your electricity usage
One way to keep your monthly costs down is by turning off your electronics when they're not in use. This is as easy as turning off lights when you aren't in the room or switching off the television when no one is watching it.
2. Save on coffee
Instead of purchasing a frothy beverage every morning from your local coffee shop, Good Housekeeping recommends making your own to save a few bucks that can quickly add up over time.
3. Get your money's worth
Think twice before throwing out your bottle of shampoo or tube of toothpaste. An extra squeeze may give you a couple more uses that can save you cash.
