You may think saving money is impossible in your situation, but like most of us, once you take time to really evaluate where you are spending your money and what you are spending your money on, you’d be amazed by how much money you can really save.
In both of this week’s LIVE events, Facebook and YouTube, we discussed ways drivers are currently saving their money on the road. Take some suggestions from some of these truck drivers and use your rewards cards along with the truck stop’s associated apps to get free meals, laundry services, maintenance, parking and more at designated truck stops. Think smart, when planning your day. Know when and where to fuel to get maximum savings. Plan your meals in advance so you can not only save by buying in bulk or at expensive quick stops but also maximize your clock and choose healthier options. You can use last week’s meal planner to help you with that.
Review your purchases and create a budget. You may be amazed by how well that can help you manage your money. Saving money on the road is possible. But remember, be good on your home time as well and don’t go wild with your spending.
Here are helpful resources that were provided by ATBS and others. ATBS provides tax, bookkeeping, and accounting services specifically for truck drivers! They also have some great FREE resources available on their website, www.atbs.com.
Good luck! You’ve Got this!
