Cost cutting tips for IT people

Today most of us learn to live a luxurious life apart from our basic needs. Inflation is screaming us; high commodities and even job loss too. How we are going to deal? The only way for us now is to cut down the costs like our companies do. Here are some ways to cut down our expenses.

  • Eat at home – Avoid eating outside often
  • Purchase only what you need – Avoid purchasing everything that catches your eyes
  • Carry bottled water on travel – Buying outside is expensive
  • Buy local products – Avoid branded when you get the same thing cheaper in local
  • Compare prices and stores – compare prices in more than one store before buying in bulk
  • Pay in cash – Avoid credit cards (Its the only thing eating our whole income)
  • Check your bills – From vegetable shops and to telephone bills

So, we should beware of our little expenses too because a small leak can even sink a large ship. And finally, we should never ever depend on a single source of income.
