(STL.News) If you’re feeling like you could be saving a lot more money than you currently are, you’re probably right. Most banking studies show that the majority of the population is woefully unprepared for retirement. Don’t let that be you. Unless you want to be working well past the age of retirement, you need to find a way to cut the extra monthly expenses and put the savings in your investment account. Here are some stealthy ways to get the job done.
Cut the Cable
If you are still paying for cable, you may want to rethink your entertainment options. There are dozens of streaming services that have relatively low monthly costs, under $10 in many cases. If you are not particular about what you watch, there are hundreds of free options that are ad-supported. So, if you don’t mind sitting through a couple of commercials two or three times an hour, you won’t have to spend anything out of pocket except for what you pay for your internet service.
Internet & Cellular Service
Speaking of internet service, if you live in a metropolitan area, it pays to shop around and see what provider offers the best value to you.
