Ways to save money

Saving money is hard so I brained stormed a list of ways to save money when you are on a budget.

  • Bathe in the River.
  • Go into Restaurants and ask “Are you going to finish that?”
  • Steal a shopping cart and tie it to the back of the bus, no more expensive bus tickets.
  • Charge your portable battery at work, then charge your phone at night. Save on your electricity bills.
  • Save money on clothes by not wearing any.
  • Cut the cable bill by watching TV through your neighbours window

I sometimes take time out of my day to care about random people. I try to soak in as much as I can gather about a person without making too many assumptions and I just try to appreciate the facts that they are another human being with worries and fears. It kinda makes me feel closer to them, especially if I reflect on the the things in my life that make us similar or ways that I wish I was like them.

It helps remind me that we’re all in this together.
