In this mini-episode, I share how you can save money on coffee at the airport and why you should have multiple bank accounts. For more money tips, join me live every Sunday over on my Facebook page (@thethoughtcard).
Tip #1: Instead of buying coffee at the airport, get free coffee during your flight. Now it might not be a latte or frappuccino but it still does the job. So if you want to save money on coffee, get it for free on your next flight.
Tip #2: Unlimited free Wi-Fi has become very popular in airports. While waiting for your flight, get some work done or connect with family and friends on social media by taking advantage of the free Wi-Fi.
Tip #3: Having multiple bank accounts is any easy way to manage your money. It allows you to see each line item on your budget separately so at a glance, you know exactly how much money you can spend.
Tips for setting up multiple bank accounts:
- Figure out how many accounts you need based on your budget.
- Next take advantage of automation – direct deposit money from your employer into specific bank accounts so all you have to do swipe and spend.
