8 Habits That Are Keeping You From Saving

October 12th, 2017

We all want to be saving. But sometimes the desire isn’t enough to get us where we want to be financially. And for many of us, when unexpected career changes or life things happen, saving is the first thing to get bumped off the priorities list.

But what if saving didn’t have to mean making a huge lifestyle shift? Instead of drastically cutting up credit cards and putting your social life on hold, there are small changes we can each be making that’ll help get our bank accounts out of the red, and it starts with shifting our perspective.

Since National Savings Day is today, we’re taking the time to honor our innate need to save — it’s a natural urge we each possess, whether you realize it or not! To celebrate, Capital One is hosting the #ShareMySave contest on social media where you have the chance to win $10,000. Find out more here and keep reading for 8 ways you could be saving that you may not have considered before.

    Thank you so much for sharing this post! It really made me reflect on how I can adjust my habits to save more money. I’ll definitely be checking out some of those workshops!


  2. These are great tips! #1 is so easy but so shocking! You forget how much things add up when they’re only $1-2 a piece. We drink a TON of water, so we definitely save during the day by filling up our tumblers 😉
