Let’s help you to stretch every dollar of your hard-earned money.
Benjamin Franklin once warned, “Beware of small expenses; a small leak will sink a great ship.”
That’s the sneaky thing about little money leaks – they don’t seem like much until they add up to big money. The Netflix documentary, Living On One Dollar, is further proof that every cent counts, literally. It’ll open your eyes to many life lessons, one of which is a reminder to city folks not to underestimate just how far you can streetch every dollar if you tried. And that’s how you get rich.
With that in mind this GSS season, we have uncovered a few hacks for you to get more savings and value for spending less. You’re welcome.
