SSF indicates that money leaks can affect your family's economy

Written by Evelyn Alas

The Superintendencia del Sistema Financiero (SSF), indicates through its Twitter account that in order to have a good 2022, you should know how to identify money leaks that affect your personal and family economy.

Keep an eye on your digital expenses

One of the tips that the SSF provides is that if you have streaming service subscriptions, you should evaluate which one you use the most and eliminate the ones you do not use, this will allow you to save money.

Buying too much

Buying groceries at the store or supermarket without planning what you are going to use during the week is a common money drain in every household. If you don't realize it, think about every time you end up throwing away leftover food or food that expired without being consumed.

To remedy this, you can take half an hour a week to plan each meal and what you will need. It's very easy and in addition to saving money, it will help you organize your week.

Cut down on some expenses

Saving on outings doesn't necessarily mean reducing their number, but controlling what each one costs. Maybe you could choose a cheaper restaurant than usual, or go to one that is closer and not have to spend on cabs, for example. When you go to a show, you could buy a cheaper ticket, even if you are a little farther away from the stage.

Optimize other outlays

Get the same product or service for a lower price and also avoid wasting water, electricity and fuel; do not leave lights on that you are not using; repair any water leaks, no matter how small, and choose to walk instead of taking your vehicle to shop or run errands near your home.
