Minimalism Success and Financial Success

Good financial habits and savings plans are founded on a having minimalist approach to life, at least when it comes to money. 

And it can be confusing!

On one hand, business leads and entrepreneurs alike are often heard saying "you cant cut costs to greatness". It's their mantra to spend more and invest more to grow. 

On the other hand engineers, accountants and any other like profession and occupation, hold more minimalistic values and espouse that greater efficiencies are the key to business success.

I suspect at times they even get them selves into an exhilarating state of financial bondage with the profound realisation that "the less money we spend and need, the more money that stays in our pockets, and it will last longer  because we need less at the same time". 

The following are ten simple ways I have found to save money and eat my cake too.

Why? Because doing so has delivered not only me but also many others I've helped make great savings but also maintain a very comfortable quality of life on the journey to achieving financial independence. Most importantly minimizing experiences of financial worry along the way.

10 simple ways I have found to save money without the need to cut back on our quality of life.

  1. Change transaction banking accounts and credit card fees to a nil cost/fee account/provider.

  2. Change lender or products if you have a home loan. Compare rates and consider benefits of changing to an offset account.

  3. Review your insurance providers (life & general) and compare terms & costs vs. competitors terms & costs

  4. Review your utility suppliers (power, phone, gas) fees and services vs. competitors.

  5. Apply for a commission refund if not accessing advice on your retirement accounts.

  6. Claim your rightful deductions in your annual tax return.

  7. Spend your money more in alignment with your values. Challenge your spending that’s for show.

  8. Automate your finances. Save on late fees. Some provides give discount for paying on time while paying on time also improves your credit rating.

  9. Get a money jar for all you spare change then bank it when its full. 

  10. Take care of what you own. Saves money on maintenance and repair costs.

This post was written by Me, as such they are my personal views and not financial or general advice.

You should always seek independent financial advice when it comes to choices about your personal finances. This is one area of your life where it’s worth paying for it to be done right.
