Remotivate your goal

Posted on Feb 17, 2017 by Money Bags

When saving for a large amount it might require some motivation from time to time. Take a moment this afternoon and look at pictures that resemble your savings goal. For example: If you are saving up to holiday on a tropical island or a mega city, then why not create a graphical itierary so you can better visualise your reward.

Road Trip

Posted on Oct 07, 2017 by Miss Piggy

Recently I've started using Apscade Saver when I go on long car trips. In the "Goal Amount" I enter my trip budget. Then each time I make a purchase for petrol, food, or accomodation, I add the amount in.

It's really useful in showing me how much of my budget live spent and how much I have left to play with.

Reward yourself and stay in budget

Next time you go to the shops try this out for a bit of fun!

Staying in budget:

  • Set yourself a goal for the total value of your shop. Say $140.
  • Now subtract about 15%. Say $20 in this case.
  • Your Goal is now $100
  • Aim for the $100 by only buying the essential items. If you need to go a bit over, thats ok.
  • When you get to the checkout see how much it actually cost. It should for starters be under the $140.
  • So congrats! You have stayed within your budget of $140, now comes the fun part!

Rewarding yourself:

  • Subtract the total value of your shop from $140. Say it was $110, that leaves $30.
  • Now, reward yourself. You have up to $30 to spend on you! You can go back and buy a treat if you like. You don't have to spend it all but, you earned it so you can now reward yourself if you so wish!
  • Money Bags and I do this all the time. We split the shop savings 50/50 and buy a couple treats (mostly healthy of course!)

Staying a motivated saver

  • Commit to a percentage of your income, say 5%. On 40k income this 2k. Plenty for a nice yearly holiday.
  • Next calculate income * 0.05.
  • Put that goal into the Apscade Saver app - it's helpful to visualise it.
  • Progressively add the set weekly or monthly amount you worked out into a seperate bank account or piggy bank.
  • Track your progress in your saver app. This is most handy if you share a bank account for more than one goal.

Turn off that stereo!

Posted on Sep 20, 2014 by Money Bags

I just love listening to music but, did you know how much power your stereo can consume when it is sitting on standby?

I recently checked this out for myself using a power meter and to my surprise it was consuming a fair amount of power just sitting there. It turns out in fact, that the total cost per year for having my stereo connected to the wall socket (doing nothing) was $30!

So, here's a nice quick way to save yourself 30 bucks. Unplug your stereo whilst you are not using it.

For more info on how to measure and track your power usage, check out our TV Guzzler app. Visit 'TV Guzzler in the App Store' or on the 'TV Guzzler Website'
