The most popular post on my blog is this one –> How To Be Rich In Your Twenties.

It seems it’s a pretty valid topic, given that us millennials need all the help we can get in this department.

Between student loans and a ridiculously inflated housing market, if we want to be able to survive on our own, we need to save money.

I repeat: We need to save A LOT of money.

So here are some of my favorite ways to save that don’t take a whole lot of effort.

Because just a few simple lifestyle changes can put a whole bunch of money back in your wallet.

  1. Pack your lunch
  2. Do your own nails (FYI, you can even get your own a gel UV light)
  3. Shop at thrift stores
  4. Use your points on your credit cards
  5. Stick to water (take your water bottle with you everywhere)
  6. Save money on groceries with Checkout 51 and Ibotta (Get a $10 welcome bonus for Ibotta if you use my link)
  7. Cut cable, stick to Hulu
  8. Find a whole bunch of free/cheap date ideas
  9. DIY gifts instead of fancy expensive ones
  10. Save your loose change
  11. Don’t subscribe to e-mails from stores (avoid temptation!)
  12. Stay on track using the envelope method or any other savings method that works for you
  13. Don’t do groceries when you’re hungry
  14. Invite your friends over for game night instead of going out
  15. Buy your books on half.com or better yet – go to the library
  16. Sell your used books on half.com (this is how I made some extra money in college)
  17. Have one no-spend day per week (don’t buy anything. nothing. nada.)
  18. When traveling, use Air Bnb (Get a $40 travel credit when you use my link)
  19. Let your hair go au-natural – coloring your hair is expensive!
  20. Renegotiate your bills whenever possible
  21. Always shop the sales! Or get paid to shop with websites like Ebates! (Get a $10 bonus when you use my link)
  22. Enroll in an automatic savings plan
  23. Share meals when you’re at a restaurant
  24. Take advantage of happy hour

  36. Use your crockpot and make big meals that you can save for later

    I love AirBnb, a lot of times you can get major discounts for staying a week or month. I recently moved to Germany and its half the cost of what I payed for my tiny apartment in NC
