Habits That Are Costing You Money

We all have a habit and habits aren’t always necessarily bad for our health or body. They can be a welcome indulgence during a stressful time or to help you relax and slow down. But when a habit is starting to cost a lot, they can end up becoming too expensive for what you can afford. Here are the habits that are costing you your hard earned dollar.

Smoking

It’s one of the few habits that’s actually bad for your health, but it’s also one of the most expensive habits to have too. With the price inflation of cigarettes going up, the cost of them is more significant now than it was years ago. However, with the introduction of vaping, you can take advantage of giant vapes, which are a slightly cheaper alternative and possibly not as harmful. It might be worth a try if you’re a regular smoker.

Drinking

A lot of us like to drink, and it’s pretty much available at many social occasions or events that we find ourselves at. So it can be very hard to avoid, and once you’ve started, it can be very easy to spend a lot of money in the space of a few hours. Particularly if you live in a big city environment, the price of alcohol is going to be a lot higher than if you lived out in the sticks. If you can, try to drink cheaper spirits and avoid the cocktails as they are the priciest when it comes to the value you get.

Trips To The Coffee Shop

A lot of us will know the feeling of going into work, not quite awake yet and the thought of a coffee en route to work seems like the perfect opportunity to spoil yourself. However, you’ll probably find those trips have become a daily occurrence, and it’s quickly eating into your bank balance. Even though they are only small amounts, once tallied up, you’ll be shocked at how much you spend over the course of a week or month. It might be cost effective to get yourself a coffee machine at home with a reusable cup.

Beauty Procedures

The beauty industry has certainly become precedent in the past few years. Mainly brought about by the increase of reality shows and celebrities promoting beauty procedures to their followers. There’s also this need to perfect our looks and any insecurities that we may have that can be quickly zapped or cut away.

Eating Out Or Takeouts

One that we’re all guilty of is eating out or treating ourselves to a take out. And that’s fine in moderation, however, if you’re finding yourself eating out quite a lot, this can end up impacting your bank balance severely. Try to restrict the amount you eat out or order in and cook yourself. Offer to host social occasions and dinners in your home, and you’ll be saving everyone money!

Habits can become addictive, so it’s important to take control when necessary to ensure that you’re not spending beyond your means.
