4 Long-term Ways I'm Saving Money in 2021
As you probably well know by now, I am attempting a spending ban this year. As you should also know, it didn't go brilliantly in January. Admittedly it could have been a lot worse! But I do really want to make a proper go of saving money, and I've made some changes to how I'll be doing it this year.
Paying for Amazon Prime Annually
I know most minimalists would say that they cancelled a subscription like this - especially if they're doing a spending ban! But we do watch the free movies/TV shows on Prime, and we do buy essentials from Amazon! Due to covid, we can't just pop out to the shop whenever we need something, so we'll just get it from Amazon instead. I also get most of my birthday/Christmas presents from Amazon, so it just makes sense to keep Prime.
For the past year I've been paying £7.99 a month for Amazon Prime and every month worrying I wouldn't have the money for it but not wanting to cancel the subscription. So, I decided to pay annually instead! One lump sum of £79 a year versus £7.99 every month amounting to £95.88? Bargain.
