How to avoid buying things you don’t need

Buying something that later turns out to be not nearly as useful as originally thought happens to even the most frugal of shoppers. Moneyville.ca recently offered some tips for consumers to use in order to avoid buying things they don't need.

For example, sometimes an item may only be needed for a small period of time – such as a tool. Rather than use it once and then put it away, it might be smarter to look at free ways to get that object. Borrowing from a neighbor is one way to do it, and with online sites like Freecylce or Kijiji, it's easier than ever to find someone willing to loan out their stuff for a few days.

As for entertainment items, swapping amongst friends is a good way to see new movies or read books. Start a small club with friends and neighbors and be sure to be generous loaning out the DVDs you've already watched or board games you've played to death.

Of course, these tips work well before owners buy things. Many may have already purchased things that are now just taking space up in their home. In these situations, a self storage unit can be the answer. There are many cheap Toronto self storage rates available for those seeking to rent a storage space, and this can be a good way to clean out some old junk that isn't used as often anymore.

Self storage can be a smart way to hang on to valuable items without taking up room in a house or apartment. For Toronto storage solutions, there's no better than Jiffy Self Storage. Those interested in self storage should check out the affordable rates on Jiffy's website, where they can also enter to win a free iPad 3.
