Looking to save some money but don’t know where to start? You’ve come to the right place! Below, we have outlined five items that we believe will positively impact your savings should you choose to dispense them.
For all you delivery lovers, it’s time to reconsider your lifestyle choices! Rather than ordering in every night, why not cook some delicious home-cooked meals instead? You’ll be surprised how much money you’ll save! It’s all about moderation; if you really want to order in but don’t want to break the bank, it would be a good idea to limit yourself to once or twice a week. The same goes for your daily coffee run before work; why not brew a nice, hot cup at home instead of while getting ready in the morning and save a pound or two?
Services that unknowingly tend to rack up your expenses include cleaning, laundry, and ironing. If you want to save some money, stop using these services and get into the habit of doing your own chores at home, laundry and ironing included, instead of hiring a professional to do it for you.

Don’t worry; we are not telling you to get rid of your TV or WIFI router! However, it might be a good idea to start becoming economical in terms of how you use both items. Consider unsubscribing from paid TV channels and costly online platforms such as Netflix and instead stream movies or shows from the plethora of free streaming websites available on the web.
Although we all love a good pampering session, the hair salon and spa are essentially privileges, not necessities. Consider cutting back and making them occasional rather than regular visits. This is sure to have a notable impact on your savings as both tend to be quite expensive, particularly spa services. Instead, invest in some high-quality moisturizers, facemasks, and hair products, and do it all for yourself at home.
For those of you who have to drive and endure long, traffic-filled commutes to and from work each day in the congested streets of Cairo, we feel for you! Applications such as Uber certainly alleviate travel stresses; however, they do not help much in terms of your wallet. Consider cutting back on this and using public transport instead, in the form of buses or the metro.
The above items may seem small and insignificant, and you may feel they make no considerable impact on your daily life and budget, but we can assure you that they do, as, after all, even the most minor expenses add up! It’s merely a question of changing your habits; we have no doubt it will make a big difference in terms of your savings in the long run.
