We could all save more but it ain’t always easy. We’ve rounded up five savings strategies that are easy, immediate and come highly recommended by other couples.
At Zeta, we've found that couples who are more intentional with their money tend to spend less and save more. Creating simple rules like I will only eat out once/week or I will drink no more than 1 coffee/day will create easy intension and demonstrate results immediately.
My favorite tactic to creating an emergency account or a slush fund is to take stuff you own and sell it via Craigslist or FB Marketplace. You'll be amazed at how much junk you have lying around that someone else will pay you good money for! I had a couple earn an extra $1000 just by identifying 10 things in their house they wanted to give away.
When talking to people about their money, I often find that we sign up for things we don't always need - a subscription box, a service we don't use or something new we bought that we didn't really want. Either cancel or return one of those items and voila, you'll instantly have more money to put into savings!
