Do you spend a lot on technology? With these steps you can solve it

Are you subscribed to all streaming platforms? Do you have cloud storage plans? Can’t get by without buying the latest smartphone or tablet model? You are probably spending a fortune a month only on technology and, of course, it shows in your pocket and in your checking account. But do not fear, you are not a unique and hopeless case, and it is totally logical that you want to be on the cutting edge of technology. However, if you have considered controlling these expenses , here we tell you how you can reduce them :

The West is going through an economic crisis derived from the coronavirus, and to this has been added in recent months the war in Ukraine, which has produced an increase in the price of countless products and services, which has also had an impact on technological goods. Without going any further, in the United States, the price of smartphones, laptops, tablets, etc., has risen almost 3% since March of last year. In other parts of the world, such as Europe, we are seeing exactly the same thing happen to products that are already expensive in themselves.

Don’t subscribe to everything

One of the main expenses lies in subscriptions to video and audio streaming platforms. There are many people who are subscribed to almost everything, and the truth is that the companies make it quite easy by offering free trial months and some promotions and discounts. It is normal for you to register on a platform to try the content for free for a month and then forget to unsubscribe, so the company continues to charge you and you don’t even realize it.

Of course, this expense is extensible to other digital services such as cloud storage sites to save your projects, your videos or your photos, or applications that include a paid premium version. The best thing you can do is create reminders to unsubscribe when the trial period ends, try to choose a single video and audio streaming service, and set monthly or annual spending goals to control what you are spending.

Control yourself when renewing your mobile

The mobile has almost become an extension of our body, and it is normal that you want to be up to date. In addition, many people are faithful followers of a certain brand, so they always try to buy the latest model of their favorite smartphone. It is true that the mobile market is very versatile and the price range is very wide, so you have mid-range and high-end smartphones depending on your economic possibilities.

Still, sometimes you might go all out and buy that new model that just came out, putting a huge hole in your checking account. From here we advise you, before buying, to study how much you can spend and take a good look at the features of the phone, because sometimes there are cheaper models that can fully cover your needs.
