Does the current economy have you worried? Let's face it, in today's world who is not concerned about their financial future? My husband and I for example, live in the Phoenix area and are raising two amazing boys. Over the past ten years we have built a solid privately owned real estate company and have watched our business double in income year after year over the past five year period only to see it dwindle to nearly no income whatsoever. So has the economy affected us? Absolutely! We have been forced into a survival mode and have had our thoughts go from fun and loving family involvement and dreaming of our future, to how are we going to pay our bills and keep the house. Our quality of life has paid a huge price!
So, is there any light at the end of the tunnel? Any hope? This crossroads led us to much research and there is some good news! We have found some unique and easy ways to save money on our existing bills and even generate some additional income as well. This good news is the reason for this article so that we can reach out and help others just like us.
I'm here to tell you there is an easier way. Actually I should say a much more FUN way to save money. Get involved with a rebate program. This will allow you to continue to do the things you want to do while saving money and even making money. I call this a monetary redistribution fund. It works like this: you make a payment for a service you regularly use and a percentage of that payment is paid back to you! It's as simple as that.
Some financial know-it-alls want you to install LED bulbs or remove unnecessary weight from your car. I've even heard to cancel the gym membership. Where would I go to socialize? That's not any fun. And although, it will save some money , it's not enough to really make a difference. A rebate program is a legitimate way to reduce costs in many areas without having to eat mac-n-cheese every night and put on another sweater because Dad set the thermostat at 50 degrees!
