Here are some of your tips.
It sounds crazy, but morning coffee is $80 a month for $4 × 5 mornings! – Atomize
I always eat out for work… $10 restaurant per day x 20 days = $200 savings per month! -Lucia
3- Hydro application
Hydro-Québec’s Flex D rate allows for significant savings in winter. – Nicole
4- Low drier
Reduce my electricity consumption. Less drier. No hanging clothes (I saved $12 a month with that). -Louis-Charles
5- Credit cards
Pay for everything with your credit card. You should pay as soon as possible to avoid interest. Many cards allow cash or RRSP rebates. I earn $500 in RRSPs every year because I pay with my credit card. – Ludovic
6- Repair instead of purchase
I’ll try to fix the broken one before I buy another one. I’ve had success 9 times out of 10 by watching tutorials on YouTube. I recently repaired the soles of my leather shoes myself. The material only cost me $20. – Mario
7- Discuss your salary
Discuss his salary. With labor shortages, employers don’t want to lose their good employees. When you negotiate, you always have a chance to win something, even if it’s not what you want. -Amelie
8- No impulse purchases
I put off impulse buys. If I want to buy something, I wait a week. If I still want to buy it a week later, I will. -Denis
I cook, I make my own food and my bread. I stay away from restaurants. I save a lot of money. – Karin
I never go grocery shopping when I’m hungry. – Suzanne
11- Buy in bulk
I buy in bulk and for sale, shampoo, laundry detergent, dish soap. I keep the products in small containers for daily use. It cost me 50% less. – Cynthia
Quitting smoking can save $4000 a year. – Samuel
In a humorous tone
-I stole the change my girlfriend left in her car. – Michael
-I spend five months in Asia every winter and save a lot. Just every 1G data on phone = 0.87$ lol -Vi
