10 ways to save money fast!

Do you want to save money - and fast? When it comes to saving money, it can be hard to grow your savings as quickly as you would like. An unexpected expense or bill always seems to crop up at the worst time! Use these finance tips to help you achieve your goals...

1. Shop around for a bank account that offers better rates. Many banks will offer a decent interest rate if you deposit a certain amount each month. Find a savings account that offers the highest rate to get the most out of your money.

2. Make sure your TV, lights and all electric appliances are completely switched off and not on standby if you are not using them. Try to keep energy use in your home to a minimum.

3. Transfer the savings to your savings account! If you're saving for the medium or long term, look into high yield bonds.

4. Cut back on brands and start buying generic products. Buy in bulk when you can; this can result in considerable savings and is a good way to save money fast.

5. Join your local library. As well as numerous books, many libraries now have extensive and up-to-date DVD collections. And the best thing is that it's all free.

6. Cut back on eating out. After a long day's work, eating out is often the easiest option. But it pays to buy and cook your own food.

7. Limit the use of credit cards. Try to pay off outstanding credit card debts so that you will not be paying interest on them. Aim to clear your balance each month.

8. Consider getting a second part time job. There are a number of ways to make money online from the comfort of your own home. You won't get rich quick, but it can be a good way to save some money fast.

10. Review your insurance policies. You may be paying for an insurance that you never use and is of little benefit.

10. Take advantage of special offers and discount coupons.
