Savings Made Simple by the Tortoise and the Hare

The Tortoise and the Hare have found some easy ways to ensure they can save more money each month. While the Tortoise enjoys saving so he can ensure his financial stability and future retirement, the Hare is more excited to save up as much as he can, and as quickly as possible!

Here’s a look and what these two unique characters get up when it comes to saving more on a monthly basis:

Reduce Subscription Costs

Both the Tortoise and the Hare enjoy the monthly subscriptions to the things they love, but they also know that sometimes they might be paying for something that they’re not currently using. With their family’s help, they can make sure they know exactly what monthly subscriptions are active and cancel anything they no longer use in order to save a few bucks each month. It’s surprising how quickly you can save on things when you’re careful!

Shop Around for Better Bills

While the Hare makes sure that he enjoys the finer things in life, he can’t deny the fact that his friend the Tortoise might be on to something with his habit of shopping around and doing his research before committing to something. For example, exploring different internet and cell phone providers just so he can benefit of a cheaper monthly bill. A few extra dollars saved a month could go a long way when they’re turned in to years!

Creating a Grocery List

By carefully planning what they need from the store in advance, both the Tortoise and Hare are less likely to spend too much on extra, unnecessary items each month. If they plan out their meals, compile a simple grocery list of these necessities, and then stick to that as they roam up and down the aisles, they can budget enough to cover their expenses without worrying about overspending!

Even though these three choices seem like simple concepts, both the Tortoise and the Hare are able to incrementally save more money each month by incorporating them into their daily lifestyle choices. And after all, these small changes barely impact their day-to-day life choices.
