Recycling and new phone contracts 'can save you cash'
4 March 2009 — 9:58 AM
A new article has offered some money-saving advice that includes shopping for the latest contracts and recycling.
In an article for the Times Union website, Susan Mehalick notes those looking to cut their spending can make a number of changes that will not impact their lifestyle too hard.
She recommends trading in used mobiles for a more cost-effective contract may be advisable and adds that recycling does not have to cost the earth.
"When you realise exactly how much waste your household produces you'll be inspired to reduce, reuse and recycle," she adds.
In addition, Ms Mehalick suggests looking at how much is spent on subscription television and internet services and addressing whether or not these are absolutely necessary.
"Your life is so busy you don't have time to watch hundreds of television channels anyway," she concludes.
Those looking at upgrading to the latest contracts can combine this with green efforts by recycling used mobiles - which could also generate some extra cash.
