There is only one place to begin, and this is with saving water. Do you leave the tap running while you are brushing your teeth? Do you take baths regularly? Do you have dripping taps around the home? If you answered yes to any of these questions, it’s time to make a change and cut down on your water usage.

One of the most effective ways to save money going forward is to invest in home automation. You can integrate all of your systems, from your entertainment to your lighting and heating. Best part: you can manage everything from your cellphone. This can help you confirm that you are never wasting energy, since you can control your systems from anywhere in the world.


Call Your Utility and Subscription Providers

You know what they say: if you don’t ask, the answer is always no. You should call up your current providers and ask whether you can go choose a cheaper subscription package or utility tariff. If they decline, say that you are going to switch providers. This will usually lead to them suddenly finding a deal!

You’ll often need to spend a little money in order to save money, and this is definitely the case when it comes to your appliances. One of the most obvious changes: a water heater repair. If the appliances around your home are old, it is likely that they are wasting a lot of energy and, therefore, costing you unnecessary expenditure every month. By investing in high-quality, energy-efficient appliances, you’ll save a considerable amount of money year to year. This will allow a return on your investment (and then some!).

Rather than spending money on phone calls, make the most of apps like Skype and WhatsApp, which enable you to make phone calls for free. This is especially beneficial if you have family or friends that live overseas.


As you can see, there are many different ways to save money around the home. From home automation to saving electricity and water around the house, there are lots of different ways you can put some more money in your pocket.
