Buying an engagement ring is typically one of the biggest purchases of your life. And it goes without saying that it's one of the most important ones, too, as it represents your love, commitment, and relationship!
Since this purchase carries such magnitude, it's important to eliminate as much stress and pressure as possible. Besides getting the best ring for your budget, here are some simple and smart ways to save for that ring budget!
Let's face it: we're spoiled with online banking these days as we can do most banking from our laptop or smartphone. Use this ease of banking to your advantage and set up a simple savings account and use automatic transfers to put a little bit away each month and voila! You'll be surprised how it grows without having to think about it.
Every one had a piggy bank at one time, right? Well, go into your attic and bring it back down. Be sure to put it in a secret spot and start saving all your change. You'll be surprised how it adds up! (Throw in a few 1's and 5's, too, and really make that total climb fast!)
When saving for an engagement ring, you'll probably need to sacrifice some extras for a while...but it's worth it! Evaluate your dining out, entertainment, travel, and clothing budget and see where you are willing to trim them. Take the "trimmings" and start saving!
Date nights are important and every couple needs them to stay connected and fuel the relationship; however...they can be expensive. Rethink going out to dinner and/or the movies and maybe cook at home instead! Consider taking a walk or just hanging out. And remember, this is only for a short while...soon you'll be able to splurge again soon!
Subscriptions are everywhere now: Netflix, Hulu, gym memberships....the list can go on an on! Think about what you're willing to stop for a while in order to get the ring of your dreams. Eliminating these can really help you save!
So there you have it...simple ways to save for that perfect ring! And speaking of perfect rings, here are a few that might make your top ten list!
