Money Saving Myths

MythsThere are really only two things that you can do with your money. You either spend it or you save it. Whether you put it in a bank or a coffee can, if you are not spending it you are saving it. Most people try to save money but are unsure of how to best go about it. Here are a few of the most popular money saving myths. Knowing them might help you to better understand how to save your money.

I Don’t Make Enough Money To Save

Anyone can save money regardless of their income. What you need to do is to make sure that you spend less than you make. Yes, some people do spend more than they earn, but a simple readjustment of a budget can help someone spend less. Doing so will free up money that can be saved.

Zero Percent Interest

Credit card companies, furniture stores, and others love to lure people in with this statement. Zero percent interest doesn’t mean anything other than you are delaying payment for something. You are not saving any money. If you buy a flat screen TV for $1,000 with zero percent interest for six months, you still owed $1,000. If you do not pay the entire balance within the six month period, you will actually pay even more.

Shopping On Sale

Each week, grocery stores and other retailers will list certain items for sale. Sure, you can find some serious bargains, but often in the end you do not end up saving money. Buying 10 individual gallons of milk on sale is great, but if you only use three of them before the others spoil you have lost money. Shopping for sale items is great if you are going to use them, but be careful. Buying in bulk does not always save you money.

Only Use Cash

You hear this one a lot. While there is some truth to it, if you only use cash you are missing out on some perks. First, using credit cards allows you to track everything that you spend and figure out where your money is going. Second, many credit card companies offer things like cash back or points that can be accumulated and used for other purchases.

These are just a few of the myths that exist about saving. Individuals looking to save money can also help themselves by paying off some or all of their debt. A quick and easy way to get rid of several revolving debt payments is to consolidate with a car title loan.
