For a person belonging to service class, monthly salary is their only savior to run the expenses of entire month. But when it comes to manage the whole budget of the month, one often runs out of money in the first 15 days of the month and then the desperate wait for the next month’s salary begins. This vicious cycle keeps running and causes stress that also hampers your productivity at work.
So here are a few tips that can help you save money and will reduce your career stress to some extent.
1. Go for online shopping
Shopping is a very amazing stress buster and when it comes to online shopping, these days, all the e-commerce giants are in the race to offer the best deals to the customers. Hence, grab a chance to buy one of the best apparels of your favorite brands online. The cheat deal will surely save you money without letting you compromise on your brand preference. Season off sale is the best time when you will get the bumper offers that will not burn a hole in your pocket. So download various shopping apps and go for the shopping while travelling as well. Don’t get into the hassles of sparing a separate weekday for shopping, rather relax at home, and invest mobile data to buy your favorite hues at the most affordable prices.
2. Subscribe to online video streaming apps
Rather than paying monthly bills for the cable service providers, subscribe to the video streaming apps such as Amazon Prime, Hotstar or Netflix and many more which will offer you latest movies and one of the best episodes. The added advantage of subscribing these apps is that you don’t need to wait to reach home to watch movies and episodes of your choice. You can stream your favourite shows and movies while on the go or when you have lunch and tea breaks in the office. They are a good stress buster and will keep you busy, cutting off the negative thoughts in the idle time. Moreover it will also save your cost of watching movies on the cinema halls as they often show the latest flicks within a time frame of 2 months or so.
3. Travel in public transport during off-beat hours
Usually the biggest reason to prefer personal vehicle over public transport is the crowd which takes toll on your personal space and makes you tired even before you reach office. So the best way to travel in public transport is when you leave for the office during the off-beat hours. For a job which operates on 9-5 timings, usually employees leave at 8pm. But what if you leave before this time and get ample seat in the bus and metro to reach office? Moreover, if you travel by metro, you won’t be stuck on the red lights and breathe less polluted air. If your office is far off then travelling by public transport will surely help you save a lot of money that goes on the expenses of car maintenance and fuel.
4. Develop a hobby that soothes your soul
To look at the brighter side of life, do not give up on learning something new. If you love cooking, go for cooking classes. If you possess love for plants, plant some saplings and care for them during the weekend and water then daily. If you love painting or guitar or some unique skill, then pursue it. Do not think that just because it is not related to your career growth so it is not worth to invest in it. Problems will remain, but your love for hobby will keep you mentally calm and composed. Investing in a hobby that you cherish the most will save you from the uninvited cost of medical bills. A stress-free life will keep you in good shape and you will stay away from diseases.
