Make a shopping list:

List of shopping matters a lot. Because when you have a list than it is easy to save money because your mind is clear about the things which you have to buy. On the other hand if you not make a list, your heart wondering place to place and insist you to buy that object either you are in need or not. As Shakespeare rightly said,’ heart has thousand reasons which reason can’t understand. So control your heart and make a list.

Visits of Market

To save money avoid going again and again in the market because it is nothing but the wastage of money, patrol, and time. In this way you will learn the art of saving money and controlling your heart desires.

Take proper heavy snacks before going to Shopping

To save money it is good to take proper snacks before going to shopping because if you’re empty stomach wandering in market than defiantly you would spend money for your empty Tommy. Moreover when someone is with empty stomach than mouthwatering foods becomes the central or focusing point. So eat before shopping that’s not only good for saving money but also helpful in saving time.

Follow your shopping list

To save money follow your shopping list and do not waste your money here and there.

Avoid window shopping

In window shopping mostly people lose their hearts and forget about their savings .So avoids window shopping to save money.

Seasonal sales

Better to do shopping in sales. In discounts you can save a lot of money. Buy according to your need not according to the desire of your heart.

Avoid Designer collections.

Why you want to promote someone designs. Make your own collection according to your budget not according to your heart wishes.


Live green and say Goodbye to junk food.

Don’t purchase junk food items. Eat home made fresh food which is not only good for health but also is helpful in saving money. Take fresh water to live healthy and fresh and avoid frizzy drinks. In this way you can avoid your dentist.

Live green

The question is why you are wasting your money in purchasing vegetables like carrots, spinach, salad, chilies, coriander because you can grow all these things in your kitchen garden. And if you don’t have any garden, than grow them in wooden, clay or plastic boxes. That is really a fun as well as in this you will not only save money but also your health.

Money saving with energy saving

Home energy saving is also a way to save the money. May be you would think that little things can’t help in saving money but in reality these little things can save your money or expand your expenditures.

Remove your window Ac units in winter when drafts can sneak I and drive up your heating bill.

Dust the coils behind your refrigerator .Because of the dirt they take more energy to run the refrigerator. And it would increase your bill.

Put your pc to rest. Not leave it on for the whole night. In this way, you can save 25$ per year.

Unplug electronics when you are not using it.

Last but not least make a budget sheet in your computer or a diary and note all your expenditures. In this way you can monitor your expanses.

As John Stuart rightly said that

I have learnt to seek my happiness in limiting my desires, rather than attempting to satisfy them. . And it’s the fact that real happiness is lies in limiting the heart desires.

And above all the most important thing is that if you want to live a happy life, be contented what you have and make two rules

Rule No. 1:

Never lose money.

Rule No. 2:

Never forget rule No. 1.

So happy Shopping with these two rules

      Fantastic blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring wrtires? I'm hoping to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm completely confused .. Any ideas? Thanks a lot!

      "To save money follow your shopping list and do not waste your money here and there." - Right, quite important not to be an impulsive buyer. It is also best to live below our means and only buy things that are essential.
