Finweek English Edition - - COVER STORY SAVINGS TIPS -

Seek out yard sales in your area when buy­ing goods that can be pur­chased sec­ond-hand, or visit web­sites such as Gumtree or Junk Mail for used goods and fur­ni­ture.

2.

Sell un­used fur­ni­ture, sports equip­ment and house­hold goods and save the money you earn.

3.

Plan your meals around what’s on spe­cial at the gro­cery store.

4.

Eat less meat – at least for now. SA’s Red Meat Pro­duc­ers Or­gan­i­sa­tion ex­pects meat prices to in­crease by over 30% this year as live­stock farm­ers bat­tle to re­build their herds af­ter a three-year drought.

5.

Buy generic or bot­tom-shelf items at the gro­cery store.

6.

Cut out the take­away cof­fees at work.
