Are You too Busy to Save Money?

Posting something on the site was on my to do list for today, but then as usual my morning got busier and I thought I’ll put it off until tomorrow.

That’s what I’ve been doing a lot lately, and the main reason the posts have been less frequent over the last year or two.

This time’s different. I’ve forced myself to sit and write something which actually made me realize what the topic of the post should be-

Are we all too busy to save money?

Making the most of our money and budget is all about being on top of things like bills and payments we make every week.

Sometimes I’m so busy that paying bills becomes automatic and I don’t check if I’m being overcharged or charged for something I didn’t receive or order. Other times I’ll think about a subscription I took out or something I signed up for and think, you know I really don’t need this any more. I think I should cancel it when it comes time to renew it.

I have every good intention of doing just that but guess what? I never do because I’m often too busy and forget when renewal time comes around and I end up being stuck with it for another month or even a year. And sometimes I know I can buy something cheaper at the store that’s farther from home, but guess what? I’m too busy to get in my car and drive there.

Today made me think about this more than ever and how being too busy can drain our budgets.

So how about putting cancelling a service or subscription or even trying to get a better deal on something on our schedules. Write it on the calendar or planner like you would any other appointment and see what happens.

I’d love to hear if this works for you and how much money you saved by freeing up some time to manage your pennies.
