The Euro Comes Under Increasing Pressure

Saving even just a bit of money can go a long way – just think about how much that money-saving pile would grow ¬†every time you skipped a Starbucks coffee, a luxury manicure and pedicure and other luxuries we don’t necessarily need. With plastic being thrown around left and right, it’s a wonder that so many of us have a hard time saving money on a daily basis!

Here are five great apps that will help you save money:

– Mint

Everyone should have a Mint – it’s the all-in-one app that keeps track of all of your finances from all of your accounts, including banking, savings, retirement, etc. The app makes a note of all your spending habits and creates a budget from that. It’s free, secure, and is a great way to keep tabs on all of your financial accounts.

– Shopkick
