How to make your ring­git stretch.

1 FOOD

You’re in the mood to di­ne­out but cross it out af­ter check­ing your funds. Stop right there! Groupon is an ex­cel­lent site to buy vouch­ers for meals that are worth much more. For daily meal plans go to econ­omy rice stalls. A meal at one of th­ese can go as low as RM3.50.

2 EN­TER­TAIN­MENT

Watch a movie at any Golden Screen Cin­ema out­let on Wed­nes­days as tick­ets tend to go as cheap as RM6. For an out­door op­tion, cook a tiny feast and head to the Per­dana Botan­i­cal Gar­den Kuala Lumpur for a pic­nic. En­trance is free and we must say the green scenery with the city sky­line in the back­ground makes a price­less view!

3 GRO­CERY

Make a gro­cery list with a quan­tity to last you for at least a month and buy it all via TESCO online. The store de­liv­ers to most places around the Klang Val­ley with a ser­vice charge of RM10. This way you won’t just be sav­ing petrol and park­ing money but your pre­cious time as well.

4 TRANS­PORTA­TION

If you’re tak­ing the pub­lic trans­porta­tion sys­tem, get your­self a MyRapid card for un­lim­ited travel trips at only RM100 per month. If you’ve got your own ride, get the monthly city or town coun­cil pub­lic park­ing pass in­stead of park­ing at pri­vately owned prop­er­ties. But since the early bird gets the worm, you’ll need to be there early to get a good park­ing spot!

5 SHOP­PING

To get the best bar­gains in any­thing from fash­ion to home dé­cor, check out bigsale.com.my. This site has a list of all the ware­house sales that hap­pen around the coun­try.
