Saving money doesn’t always mean having less fun or changing your lifestyle. By trying out a few simple tips, you can save money without making your life a pain. We put three young people to the test, to see if they could spend less on their bills, food and social life with a few small changes. Special thanks to Glen James of My Millennial Money, who gave us some budgeting tips.

By simply changing providers, I can save over $120 throughout the year. Doesn’t seem like much, but it adds up.

Here are a few things we learned:

  • If you do a bit of research and call up your internet/electricity/mobile providers, you can save heaps on  your bills.
  • Saving money doesn’t mean you have to eat poorly. Great apps like Supercook will encourage you to learn new recipes while using all the stuff in your fridge at the same time.
  • Online gaming, working out and board games are fun ways to hang out with friends without spending too much money.
