#1 Save money on gas
This is probably the most obvious reason why you should work at home to save money instead of driving dozens of miles every day to your office. A lot of people started working at home ever since the gas prices skyrocketed 2 years ago, so that they can save money on gas. Now with recession and low salaries, higher expenses and high interest rates – it’s worth looking again at this solution because it can potentially save you a lot of money if you currently live far away from work.
#2 Save time
Sure, saving time is nice but what does this have to do with saving money? They are related because if you save several hours a day that you would otherwise spend on driving, you could use those extra hours to make extra money when you work at home. If you can make $20 an hour working at home, then if you save 3-4 hours per day (including all the time spent stuck in traffic), then you could be making $60-$80 extra per day. So saving time could result in making extra money when you work at home.
#3 Save money on work related stuff
This is anything that you have to spend your money on when you work at a company’s office. It can
range from office clothes to a new laptop, smartphone, and even get in debt to buy a new car! All these can add up and increase your costs. Right now it’s not a good time to do that.
#4 Save money on food
When you don’t work at home but for a company’s office, you usually have to buy something to eat and drink in the morning and then at lunch, if they don’t pay for the lunch. After this when you leave work you might have to grab something to eat, especially if you know there’s going to be a lot of traffic and it will take a while for you to get home. All these add up to a pretty significant amount, which you could save by working at home.
#5 Make extra money by starting a home business
Instead of remaining just an employee and working at home, try starting a home based business that will make you some real money. Come up with a great idea, invest a little, take care of the business finance and you will soon be making more money from your work at home than you ever did as an employee.
