4-Ways to Digitize Your Life and Save
Technology evolves and improves seemingly every time you blink. From apps to virtual reality and voice assistants to robots, technology affords us the ability to make life easier so we can enjoy what matters most to us. And when it comes to managing finances, digitizing your life can actually have a bonus effect on your wallet.
Here are a few ways modern technology can aide your bottom line;
#1. Make your home smarter.
Enhancing your home life with smart products can save you time, energy and money. For example, by switching to a smart thermostat, which can turn on and off when you need to, you'll save up to $145 a year.
#2. Cut the cord.
The average cable bill per household is around $99 per month, and most people only watch a handful of those channels. A one-time purchase of a media streaming device costs about the same as a single month of cable. Subscribe to your favorites and you can save around $1,000 a year.
#3. Trade in your old tech for cash
. Have some old phones and tablets lying around? They could be worth a couple of hundred bucks. Many internet trade-in sites and retail stores will offer gift cards and even free shipping for your old tech.
