    I Tried 6 Money-Saving Hacks And Here's What Actually Worked

    Two apps, a money jar, and a new bullet journal addition actually saved me a whole lot of cash in just one month.

    Back in 2016, I decided it was time I started taking my finances a little more seriously. So, I tried a series of spending and saving hacks, and wrote about them.

    1. The tip: Estimate how much money you're going to spend each weekend on Friday afternoons.

    2. The tip: Save every single $5 note you come across.

    3. The tip: Download the saving app Digit and let it take money from your checking account every day.

    4. The tip: Unfollow and unsubscribe from everything that makes you want to spend money online.

    5. The tip: Download the Clarity Money app to seriously track your spending and see what you spend the most money on each month.

    6. The tip: Be vocal about what you are and aren't spending money on at the moment, even when it feels awkward.
