Are you cheap? Well? Wait, don’t answer that. You’re here after all. As forward as it might sound, who isn’t cheap nowadays? Everyone would rather spend less money than more money if they had the choice, unless you just happen to suffer from oniomania, more commonly known as being a “shopaholic”.

Money is there to be spent, that’s for sure, but it sure does hurt letting it go sometimes. Everyone seemingly wants your money nowadays, and if you’re not careful in one way or another, you’ll just end up giving your riches away to anyone who prints a colourful billboard. Of course, other than just not spending money at all, there are ways to just save money while still buying things like normal. If that sounds appealing to you, then keep on reading, as we will now go through just a few ways in which you can do just that. In fact, you can do it without even leaving your chair.
The internet is as wonderful as it is horrifying, and it is also as useful as it is a gigantic procrastination tool.

Everyone flies around the world nowadays, it’s no big deal, but despite how common it may be, the prices for travelling by plane is still somewhat high nowadays.

Asset Column is a website which connects buyers and sellers, without the need for an actual middleman, as the site itself does that.

While some people have been vehemently supporting eBay and Amazon for the past decade or so as the go-to place to get your shopping for considerably cheaper, a new player is in town for the past few years. Everyone knows that buying in bulk is cheaper, but not everyone has the chance to go and buy 50 pairs of headphones or 60 keyboards they want just for the potential “value” purchase. This is where Massdrop comes in, a website where people choose to participate in group purchases, and when enough people get involved, the product gets bought in bulk, for cheaper, and then sent out to whoever purchased it. Sure, you might not have next-day delivery like Amazon Prime provides, but for the average oniomaniac , this is a great way to get your shop on while still being able to actually pay rent by the end of the month.
