The holidays came and went bringing with it new electronics, winter accessories, and a depleted bank account. Though we loved all the new gadgets of 2013, it’s time to start thinking about 2014. Who knows what Apple, Microsoft, and Google plan to unveil in the upcoming year?
We’ve compiled some tips to help you save money in 2014 so your bank account is ready to upgrade electronics at any moment.
- Make sure you’re claiming any lost or forgotten assets. Search on Unclaimed.org to see if you or your family members have any lost funds to secure.
- Keep all your loose change in one location and watch it accumulate over the year. Roll up the coins and take them to your local bank for a lump sum deposit.
- Trade-in your unused electronics for cash with trade-in services! Nextworth accepts trade-ins for multiple different product categories from iPhones and cameras to laptops and videogames.
- Host a virtual garage sale to get rid of old household items. Take a picture of your goods and share it on social media for friends and family to purchase.
- Work at a part time job to pick up some extra cash. Look for seasonal work such as jobs at a ski resort or Christmas tree lot.
- Instead of paying full price for a new device, buy used electronics.
Saving money can be a simple, but hard task. Recycle your old electronics to declutter your home in 2014 and look for others ways to save money by recycling.
