Five Things A Guys Can And Should Do A Lot Less Expensively
Posted by Ray Gruenfelder
As a guy, there’s a lot you want to do to maintain your lifestyle. It’s all about the style, how you carry yourself as well as how you enjoy your life. Yet it can be an expensive lifestyle to maintain. That said, it shouldn’t have to be. There are loads of ways to cut back on your spending without living a lesser life. Follow our guide and we’ll keep you living how you’re used to, but saving a lot more money in the process.
Looking sharp – It’s great to have the right kind of style for every occasion. Sure, you won’t have any difficulties when it comes to lounging around at home. But how about when you’re at a business conference or a job interview? How do you save money on those formal occasions? With a budget guide, you can dress like a gentleman without overspending. Getting vintage suits refitted for you doesn’t only save you money, but it adds a whole new level of class to the look.
Home style – Decorating a home is going to cost some money, we all know that. It’s a necessary expenditure, but that doesn’t mean it has to be a massive one. There are a lot of great accessories and furnishings you can get that don’t cross the boundary of spending more than a hundred. Expensiveness doesn’t always account for style so don’t be afraid to take the cheap chic options now and then.
Getting fit – Health and fitness is an important part of any man’s life. There’s an assumption that it always has to be expensive, especially on the diet end. That’s not necessarily true, however. Buying in bulk, at the start of the week, and planning all your meals can help you learn how to budget all your health foods in one go. You can easily forego the gym bills as well. There are loads of exercises you can do at home with minimal equipment. If you need to get out of the house, there’s no shortage of regimes using the great outdoors, either.
Sports events – Every guy needs to get out of the house to enjoy something they can get riled up about. For a lot of men, this means going to see the game, the fight or whatever sport it is they enjoy. These kinds of events can be expensive and made only more expensive by scalpers trying to make as much as they can. One solution to this is getting into the local and youth or college scenes. Not only can you get caught up in that good old community spirit but you might see the rising stars before anyone else. There are other ways, too, of finding sports tickets cheap.
Gaming – Just like sometimes you need to go out for some old-fashioned entertainment, sometimes you want to stay inside for the newest kinds. Video games are an expensive hobby, but you can spend a lot less by getting to know all the free games released. Games that are slightly aged release for free all the time. Hold back and wait for a bit to avoid spending anything on that release you’ve been pining after.
