NOTE: This is a guest post

“Save money and money will save you,” the saying goes, but for many people, the practice of saving money is easier said than done, no matter how hard they try.

With all the bills, grocery items, and other expenses to pay for, most of the time the only savings to speak of is what we have left, which would then be spent on the other things we forgot: a promised donation to charity, a replacement for a broken coffee maker, or perhaps a child’s school project.

There must be a way to save more money, you think, and indeed there is. Here we have not just one, but four of the easiest ways for you to save money and in turn, save yourself.

A Love Affair with Target!

How to Save Money at Target

I think I have become somewhat (ok a lot) obsessed with Target deals, coupons, and stacking all those things with manufacturers coupons. Target provides you with amazing deals (for exaple) to buy 3 Tide Detergents get a $10 gift card back. You can also use your coupons with this! So say the Tide detergent is $10 each, you buy 3 so that is $30, I had 3 $2/1 manufacturer coupons so that brings the total down to $24 minus the gift card makes your over all price just $14 for 3 Tide detergents. Is this an amazing extreme couponers deal? No.. BUT if you get Tide anyways this is a very easy deal that anyone can use even if you aren’t super coupon savvy.

Saving Tips For Moms

The purpose of saving is always a great way to cushion financial ups and downs that may hit life now and then. As a stay at home mom it surely is up to you to have good saving practices in your day to day expenditures. Moms can save the most as they are in the better position of spending than any other person. Saving does not always have to equate to cutting regular budgets by far. It’s much easier to save by substituting various things that require spending, for example by comparing prices as you are sure to save from this.

Saving Money With Store Loyalty Programs

While shopping is about spending, it can also be a chance to put something back into the budget. For instance, if the budget for food items in particular shopping list is $200, $5 minimum can easily be cut out. Start off with small goals and build upon them. Shopping for moms is such an ideal chance for saving some money and putting it back into the general welfare of the family. This is just one of many ways that stay at home moms can help contribute to the family budget!

Saving Errors You Should Try To Avoid

Because saving is done by humans and humans are prone to error, it is typical that saving can be erratic in some ways. As a stay at home mom you are also prone to some of these errors. Saving errors may not be fatal but they are quite disheartening as some of the errors you may not know you are doing them. Most of the errors can be avoided if you know where they are going to come from.

Targeted Saving For Stay At Home Moms

Saving can just be an evasive practice because it requires a lot of sacrifices and discipline. It is even harder for a stay mom because the money on which you are saving from is not from your own earnings. That means the money is a bit restrictive. But you can always find a way to go about it as a stay at home mom. Perhaps the best way to keep this saving practice alive and the discipline is to have some sort of targeted saving. A targeted saving can be said as saving to accomplish a certain objective keeping in mind of all the challenges that may have an effect on that saving. For example, I want to save $300 so I can get that pretty new coach purse!
