The 3 Best Money Saving Apps


It doesn’t take a genius to know that life can be expensive. No matter what you do, every month just seems to feel like an ongoing money battle.

As soon as that shiny hard-earned cash reaches your bank account, it manages to fly out again before it even has time to touch the bottom. You just wish it could sit there a tiny bit longer so you could actually enjoy it, rather than watching it flitter out every time to pay all of those pesky bills.

So, it’s no wonder that so many of us are on the constant look out for great ways that’ll help us save as many of those all-important pennies as possible.

And, believe it or not, this is exactly where your iPhone can help you. There are hundreds of handy money-saving apps that can help and steer you in the right direction when it comes to your money woes.

So, get on the App Store, download these top 3 free apps and you’re bound to start saving money in no time!

1. ShopShop

This free shopping list app will help to ensure you stick to the essential items you actually need when out doing your grocery shopping.

It’s too easy to fall into the trap of filling up your shopping trolley with items you don’t need – I know that those offers on your favorite chocolate biscuits seem like a great deal, but trust me, you don’t need them and they will end up making you spend more.

So, ShopShop remembers the same items listed from your previous shop, so remembering what you need is easy. All you need to do is stick to your list every week and you won’t fall into that nasty unnecessary spending trap.

2. Expensify

Expensify is a handy little app that helps you to keep track of everything you spend.

By syncing your all of your credit, debit cards and bank accounts, you can see exactly where your outgoings are going, so you can keep on top of them all. With the ability to manually enter expenses, or scan in your receipts, you’ll never lose track of your money again. And, with a useful little reports deck, the app even creates a summary of what you’re spending, so you can easily see exactly where maybe you’re going wrong!

3. Vouchercloud

If you’re looking to save money, then you can’t fail to ignore the tactic of searching for offers when doing so.

And, apps such as Vouchercloud help you to do exactly that.  Using your iPhones GPS system, Vouchercloud helps to hunt out what stores around you are currently offering their customers money off on their next spend.

Whether you’re looking to save money on your next dinner out, or you’re looking to save money on your next round of golf, simply type in what you’re looking for, for example “Pizza Express Promo Codes or Golf Online Promo Codes” and you’ll be given a list of offers currently available for that particular company. And what’s more, you’re guaranteed to be able to find great deals on pretty much anything and everything you’ll ever need! It’s the easiest and simplest way to save money.
