We know all too well how difficult It can be to save when you’re taking care of a family. Besides the costs it takes to feed everyone, no-one should go through life without indulging in a little luxury once in a while. So besides abstaining from everything that you enjoy, there has to be some other way to save. We explore that with these great tips.
The first thing you need to do is set up a family budget using Tally and give everyone access to their tally erp9 on mobile. After all, a luxury once in a while is perfectly fine but losing track can get you in serious hot water. Put together a budget of all your incoming and essential outgoings.

Grow your own
If you want to spend a bit less money on food, there’s an option that takes a bit more effort but a lot less money. Providing you have space in your garden (or even a few pots for smaller plants), why not grow your own? Besides saving money, it can be a great way of keeping an eye on exactly what your family eats. It can even be a fun hobby to share with the kids.
Cutting the bills
A lot of us go on paying loads on bills without really ensuring we’re paying as much as we should. Most people should shave off quite a lot when it comes to their utility bills by just paying it a little more mind. This can mean being smart about using lights in our home. It can also mean replacing inefficient equipment and getting our homes insulated so we spent less on heating, too.
