Better CT: Money Saving Tips

It's always important to manage your money. It can sometimes be stressful to do so on your own, that's why Lifestyle Expert Limor Suss shared some apps that can help you manage your money and make some extra money on the side!



If you're looking to manage your money, the first step is to always start budgeting! Mint.com is a great and fresh way to reach your goals with personalized insights, custom budgets, spend tracking, and subscription monitoring—all for free! The app even provides helpful tips and investment opportunities.


Another tip is if you usually spend money for something (like your weekly Starbucks), cash it out and put it somewhere 'safe.' Since you're most likely not spending the weekly Starbucks money, due to the pandemic, you're more likely to use it for something else, so if you're looking to save it, just cash it out and store it where you won't touch it!


If you're looking to make a little extra money on the side, now that everything is digital it's easier than ever! Some of Limor's favorite websites are GiftCardGranny.com, Thredup.com , and RetailMeNot.com.
