You might not have thought about these ways of saving substantial amounts of money. Here’s Forbes’ 5 suggestions:
Don’t be penny-wise, pound-foolish. As in, don’t just scrimp and save and avoid those daily cups of Starbucks — and splurge a large chunk of your income on a larger, more-expensive apartment than you really need.
Donate your plasma for money.
Become a referee of your favorite sport.
Use sites and apps that help you save or earn back money.
Save money on necessary items (Forbes listed contacts, but you can save money on all different necessary items).
Many homeowners decide to sell their home without hiring a Realtor. Does listing your home with a real estate agent or listing it as a For Sale By Owner (FSBO) make more sense?

Take a look at their infographic below, and if you are selling and would like a Realtor to do the job for you, give me a call! I’m here to help you get your home sold! John A Silva, (619) 890-3648
