Ways to cut down on costs in London.
Advice on saving money whilst working in London.
Working within London can be quite expensive and some people may find that it is just too much for their personal budget. However, there are several things that you can do to reduce the cost of your everyday life within the city. One of the main factors that affects people is the cost of food and travel. However there are several things that you can do to change this. Here a a few examples:
Firstly, making your own lunch ensures that you don’t spend money in restaurants and cafés. Overspending on food is quite a common problem and can really affect the amount of money that you have in your account at the end of the month. Making your own lunch can also mean that you completely avoid impulse buying when you’re purchasing lunch. It also means that you can ensure that you eat more healthily.
Next, avoid over priced coffees, teas and energy drinks. Simply make your own coffee at home and bring it with you to the office. This will save you both money and time and can really save you some money for the end of the month. Alternatively, get a kettle for the office and set up a communal drinks area that everyone can contribute to. For example, everyone might put a little money in for some coffee every month. This can work out considerably cheaper than buying from a shop every day.
Lastly, avoid vending machines and snacks. These small things can eat away at your personal finances when you buy them every day for an entire month.
