Today we honor the best Presidents who ever lived. Men like Abraham Lincoln and George Washington were titans standing astride the world, and they made our country a better place.
Not to blaspheme, but it’s also a good day to think about saving your Washingtons and Lincolns, as well. We can learn lessons from presidents past who fought for fiscal balance and their mugs on various denominations of the dollar. Let’s face it, if you can remember American history proudly and be known as someone who is always saving money, that’s a winning day.
Let’s get right into our advice for the day.
- Always buy in bulk. Not only will you save a lot of money, but you won’t have to worry about repeatedly purchasing items and subjecting yourself to the fluctuations of the market.
- Install energy-saving bulbs and more. As a business, you’re probably going to consume an enormous amount of electricity. You might as well save as much cash on that as you can by getting more energy-efficient equipment, turning the lights off when warranted and of course replacing your light bulbs.
- Target your marketing and advertising. You’ll spend less if you’re targeting your outreach toward customers and those who have a high likelihood of becoming customers. A laser-like focus gives you more bang for your buck every time.
- Shop for everything. Never buy the first thing you see when you have a chance to shop around. That’s true of everything from equipment financing (which you technically don’t buy) to the aforementioned energy-saving light bulbs. You can almost always find variability in pricing at different stores and lessors, so shop around and you’ll find yourself saving potentially thousands of dollars every year.
We hope that our tips will bring out the inner Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter in you. Let us know what you think.
