Happy Independence Day, Finance Style

by frugalista on July 4, 2012

Happy Birthday, America! While we celebrate America’s independence from British rule, let’s be sure that we honor our financial independence! If you master your money, you master your life! So while you’re barbecuing with your family, playing in the pool or hitting up a happy hour (like I’ll be doing, today) be sure to think about ways to be more financially independent!

Financial Independence Check List

Insurance Check If you’ve been with the same car insurance company for years, check around with other carriers to see if they offer the same level of insurance for less money. You may want to change providers so you can save money. It’s worth a look. One of TheFrugalista.com readers did it and saved big money!

Save strong Vow to save at least an extra $10 per check. Trust me, $10 goes a long way. Check back with me in a year and let me know how much you’veand what you plan to do with the money. Vacation, perhaps?

Sell something Now would be a good time to go through your closet and figure out what you want to keep and what you want to give away, or even sell. Consigning that designer dress that you never wear, may be a good idea. I’m all about frugal capitalism.

What are you doing to be financially independent?
