As we face Jan-u-worry and find ourselves struggling to get through to the first paycheck of the year, making the most of the pennies left in your unflattering bank account is essential. Never fear! A few cash-saving tips help you nudge your way over the February finish line without having to break into your hard-earned savings.
From January to February it’s about making your money go further. It’s about ensuring you have bread on the table, bills paid, money saved during the first quarter and still being able to enjoy a little shop here and there.
Fortunately for Payflex shoppers, we’ve got the ultimate cash-saving tips to get you through the January-February slump.
Cash-Saving Tips #1: Keep Track Of Promotions, Sales And Specials
During the January and February crunch, you’d be surprised how many quality products are on sale. While this is not the time to go overboard, early 2022 provides much savings thanks to discount prices on products.

Tip #2: Stay Away From Credit And Credit Cards
Sure, you can opt to swipe away with a credit card purchase, but we all know the hefty price that will bring in terms of interest fees. So, to save cash, opting for zero interest will save you now, and later.
Yes sure, it’s tempting to purchase something and tell yourself that you’re going to pay it off in instalments. But, and there is a big but, if you’re constantly buying on credit you’ll find yourself struggling to get out of the debt cycle long after the January-February slump has passed.
Cash-Saving Tips #3: Shop Smartly And Avoid Shopping Expenses That Don’t Include Actual Products
It’s all about economising when you’re trying to get through this awful January-February crunch. However, with online shops ready to check your items out and deliver them to your door, economising is easy. Save on petrol costs as you shop online.
Then add further savings as you buy in bulk. Bulk items are a great way to get more for less.

Tip no. #4: Save Money Buy Eating In And Enjoying Entertainment At Home
During this slump, who needs a bar when you can order alcohol online and enjoy fine drinks at home at a lower cost? Who needs to eat out or celebrate birthdays at expensive restaurants when gifts are available online and so two are the party items!
Who needs to pay high movie ticket prices and expensive entry into entertainment facilities when you can craft away at home and save money doing it!
And, there’s no need to pay high spa and beauty treatment prices when you can pamper yourself at home for half the price! Save on all this, this month and still enjoy the good times.
