1. Get rich fast by only paying for what you need

7 daily habits to live by to get rich fastWe’re all guilty of it – the odd £3 coffee, the new clothes we don’t need, the overpriced branded products we could do without.

Every day without realising it we are wasting money on little things that if saved could make us some serious cash.

So what’s the solution? It’s simple really… only pay for what you need and you will get rich fast.

Everyday essentials like heating, car insurance and internet are mostly unavoidable but there are areas where we can all do with cutting down on. Try to reduce spending on things you don’t need, or better yet, things you can get for free like free food, free furniture, free haircuts, free cinema tickets and much more.

Little changes in your everyday spending can turn into big savings!

Stop paying for these 15 things you can get for free.

2.Get rich fast by learning to haggle

7 daily habits to live by to get rich fastGive haggling a go and it will soon become one of your new favorite hobbies!

There is nothing embarrassing about haggling over the price of anything. It takes a bit of front but anyone can do it if they know how.

You can save money on anything from clothing to electronics, homeware and sports equipment. Simply asking for a discount can sometimes lead to big savings or discounts,  but don’t accept the first offer.  Remember shops out there would rather make a lower sale than no at all so whatever they offer push a little more and hopefully you’ll get a good deal.

Whether they say yes or no, stay pleasant and be friendly, particularly if you would like to come back to that shop later. It’s tough for everyone, particularly shop owners, so be nice and you’re likely to get more in the long-run!

Here’s our guide to haggling like pros!

You don’t always need money to get what you want. Everyone has something to offer in terms of skills, it could be anything from accountancy to decorating, gardening to dog-walking or child-minding. You might have goods to exchange or even be willing to lend out equipment.

By simply swapping skills with others, you might be able to save £100s. There are a number of organisations out there that cater to whole communities of skill-swappers if you want to widen your horizons.

Remember! It’s not just skills that are swappable – your unwanted stuff is too. There are hundreds of sites around devoted to swapping clothes, DVDs, books… pretty much anything you can think.

Give skill swapping a go! You’d be surprised what you can get.
