We’ll Show you How to Save Money

Know where you stand

Money saving starts with knowing how much cash is left to spend and evaluating your current spending habits. moneyStrands automatically sorts and graphs your expenses into helpful categories, such as “Auto” or “Restaurants,” so you can quickly spot the areas you’ll want monitor closely.

Control your spending

Try to identify expenses as "fixed" or "variable." Fixed expenses are those that routinely occur each month and are usually for the same amount. Examples of fixed items are your rent or car payment. Fixed expenses are unlikely to change. You can control variable expenses such as utility bills, groceries, and entertainment. moneyStrands simplifies your budget by allowing you to effectively create an allowance for all of your living expenses. It automatically sorts and graphs your transactions into expense categories so you can quickly spot if you're burning through your money too quickly. Thinking about your expenses in this way will help you identify the expenses you can save on.

Get rid of unnecessary expenses

Evaluate your expenses; look for opportunities to economize, and create a budget plan to cut back spending for specific problem expense categories. After all, successful budget planning is all about saving from your monthly expenses. moneyStrands also lets you compare with your peers and see how much they typically spend so you can easily identify the best places to save more money.

Set up spending goals

We recommend to set a budget for variable expenses like restaurants or shopping first, so you can start to get a handle on your problem areas. Try to cut back 15% or less to make sure that you have a realistic goal so you can stick with it.
