6 Ways to Save on Work Expenses
You may not realize it, but going to work each day can be costing your more money than it should. The little work-related expenses can add up over time, which could really cut into your budget. The best way to save money on job expenses is to notice where your money is going and cut the spending.
-Shop for clothing at thrift stores.
This is a great way to save money if you are in need of pricey business attire. Sometimes, you can come across gently used suits and dresses for a fraction of the cost of buying new. Dress shoes and accessories can also be picked up at consignment stores, so don’t forget to shop for those too.Shoes Online!
-Pack your lunch.
It’s amazing just how much you can save by bringing your own lunch to work. With the average meal being $6-$10, the expense adds up quickly if you are going out to eat every day. Think of what that $30-$50 could go each week if you planned ahead and packed your meal.
-Skip the coffee stop.
I know so many people that stop by a coffee shop on their way to work. These people are likely spending $15 or more each week on a single beverage. Cut that expense by preparing your own coffee at home. If needed, carry a cup with you in a travel mug to save those few bucks each day.Thermos Stainless Steel King 16-Ounce Travel Tumbler, Midnight Blue
–Use Gas Buddy.
If you drive your own car to work each day, be mindful of the money you spend on gas to get there and back. Gas Buddy is a mobile app that will tell you were the best prices on gasoline are located. Find a station on your route with the best price to save some money. Saving three cents off each gallon may not seem like much, but if you do that every week it will add up over time.
-Carpool to work.
If you have the luxury, start a carpool with your employees. This can also be done with a roommate or spouse, if the two of you work near each other. Carpooling with others will help you save money on gas to work, as well as the general wear and tear on your vehicle.
-Find out what expenses can be reimbursed.
If you travel for work, you need to be aware of what expenses your employer is going to cover. Many will reimburse you once you return for your trip rather than giving you money upfront. You will be able to save your own money on the travels if you only buy things that are approved by your work (food, gas, etc).
Expenses related to your job can easily be cut with these simple steps. You don’t want to spend tons of money in order to make it!
