We want to free-up some pocket space so you can move around more comfortably and with total freedom. Here are a few tips to take even more weight out of your wallet - they’ve certainly worked for us!
PAPER RECEIPTS ARE SO LAST CENTURY
Do you really need the receipt or card copy from that hamburger that you’ve just eaten? Or from those shoes that you’ve worn three times? Get rid of those receipts for good, you’re not going to use them. If there are a couple that you’d like to hang onto just in case, or there are some that you need for work, we advise storing them in a safe place at home where you won’t lose them.
LOYALTY CARDS - YOU DON’T NEED THEM
The majority of shops that give you a loyalty card have a database on their computer. This means that by providing some form of identification, you’ll be able to continue collecting those fantastic points and discounts. There are also some great mobile apps that work as digital cards and we’d encourage you to give them a try.
BUSINESS CARDS - BETTER IN DIGITAL
They are small, in your ROIK you’d fit as many as you’d need to hand out in a day. And, for those that get given to you, make them digital by taking a photo of them. There are also a wide selection of apps that can store this type of information. Get the most out of your smartphone.
LIGHTEN YOUR LOAD AND LEAVE YOUR SMALL CHANGE AT HOME
Carry high-value coins around with you and save the rest of your small change. Once you’ve saved enough, head to the bank and change them for notes. Without realising, you’ll have saved enough to take your partner or a friend out to dinner or to the cinema with the money you’ve saved.
