If you follow Dave Ramsey baby step 1 is saving $1,000 or even if you have no money saved and would like to break the ice and learn how to save. I’m sharing a few tips below that will jump-start your savings goals. Whether you want to save $1K or 10k. Just keep on repeating the process.

How to Save $1000 fast


Saving Challenge
You can easily save by saving $77 weekly for 3 Months which is 13 weeks. There are tons of other variations of this. Do what works best for you.

Side Hustle
I know this is the just one of those things that people hate to hear. The more you make the more you can save. Try getting a side Hustle and/ or applying for a promotion or another job. We sometimes just get complacent with the job that we have that we sometimes get too comfortable and stay in the same position. There are a ton of side Hustles from UrberEats, Mystery Shopping, dog walking, surveys, starting a blog... just to name a few. Figure out what works for you. What are you good at?

Drink Water
You have no idea how much money you could save if you cut out juices, which can be really pricey. Remember this change doesn't have to be forever if you don't want to make a lifestyle change. However, try cutting out drinking soda or juice for a week to see how much money you can save and put the money in a savings account to go towards your $1K goal.

Pack Your Lunch
I’ve never been one to buy a lunch every day. Don’t get me wrong. I do enjoy occasionally eating out. If you budget $50 a week for eating out for lunch. You could easily save close to $200 a month. By cutting this cost. Maybe you can go from eating out every day to treating yourself once a week.

Eat Out Less Out
I know for some this may be hard. Especially being in a relationship date nights are so important. However, think about all the money that you could possibly save. Try eating out for lunch instead of dinner because a lot of times it’s much cheaper and sometimes even the same portion size. I love being creative and have a picnic dinner. The possibilities are really endless and Pinterest always has really clever ideas.

Buy in Bulk
I love having a wholesale membership. It honestly has come in handy. Especially for gas and food. Let’s not forget to mention the amazing travel deals they have as well. I think a major misconception is that when you buy in bulk that you’re going to have a lifetime supply of the item. That’s really far from the case in most cases. I love to buy my seasonings, water, nuts, frozen items and veggies in bulk. It’s usually amazing quality the portion size isn’t that different in most cases and you save.

Cancel a Service
A couple of years ago I ditched cable and my gym membership. I’m just not one of those people that enjoy going to the gym. The only time I workout at a gym is while on vacation. Weird right? It’s just not for me. I also ditched cable. It wasn’t hard for me. However, my family struggled in the beginning. With services like Netflix and Halo. It really was a great decision and you could possibly save a lot of money.

Do you have any money saving tips?

  1. We are ditching cable come December when the contract is over. Can't wait that will save us a bunch every month. Packing lunches, not eating out and drinking water will save a bunch of money as well.

  4. Eat out less, YEPPPP!!!! HA! Already noticing this! My husband and I ate out a crap ton when we rented our condo but we just moved two weeks ago into a glorious house with a beautiful kitchen and amazing grilling space so we have zero excuse NOT to cook at home! ;)

  6. We recently went through this challenge at the very beginning of the summer to see what frivolous expenses we could cut out. We really cut back on the eating out - but THEN, the cooking is up to me 100% and that gets REALLY old VERY quickly! I've decided my family is super lazy and depends on me way too much to do EVERYTHING! ☺
