Wisconsin Saves Tip: Reduce Frequency of an Expense vs. Dollar Amount


The Wisconsin Office of the State Treasurer proudly teams up with WWBIC (Wisconsin’s Women Business Initiative Corporation) for “Wisconsin Saves.”  Each week, we will share with you a savings tip courtesy of WWBIC.

Reduce the frequency of an expense instead of dollar amount. Instead of saying that you’ll cut takeout from $200 a month to $100 a month, commit to getting food to go less often. If you usually get takeout four times a week, cut back to two to three times a week. If you go out to restaurants three times a week, cut back to one to two times a week. When you’re trying to change, it’s easier to focus on the behavior than the dollars.
