– Using cash instead of card really helps you keep track of your spending. Saving your coins is also way easier if you're doing this.
– Competitions and online surveys are not a viable way to make money. This is kind of a given, but still, it's important to remember.
– Becoming a ~conscious spender~ is the single most important thing. Swiping loyalty cards, cooking in bulk, and cutting down on costs like coffee are all insanely easy and insanely helpful.
– In the end I saved about $230, and made $81 from eBay, Airtasker, and dumb surveys. Once you train yourself to take notice of where your money goes, it's way easier to hold on to it.
