Extra cash can be hard to come by—especially when bills like
car insuranceand everyday expenses always seem to be piling up.
There’s plenty you can do with that extra cash, but in case you need some ideas, we compiled a list of some of the smartest ways to spend the money saved by using the Jerry car insurance app.
Use Jerry car insurance savings to pay off bills
Take a look at your finances and see if you can catch up on any bills you may have missed paying when times were tougher (hey, it happens to all of us). With a little extra cash in your pocket, you could easily get back on track.
You might even be able to pay off a credit card or a student loan with the savings you have from Jerry—or at least make a large enough payment to lower your balance.
Save for holiday spending
Mostly everyone loves the holidays, but it can be expensive and sneak up on you fast at the end of the year.
If you celebrate, consider getting a head start saving a few bucks a month throughout the year. That way, you won’t be so stressed out buying gifts for loved ones in December.
Save for a big expense
Is there a big expense coming up that the savings could go toward? Maybe your bathroom needs work, or maybe it’s time to buy a
new carsoon? Most of us always have some sort of necessary expense just around the corner.
Take a look at your own needs and where that money can be best applied. That way, you won’t be totally unprepared when that upcoming expense becomes essential (e.g. your
car breaks downon the highway and you have no way to get to work now).
Retirement account, IRA or savings account
It’s never too early to start saving for retirement. If you don’t already have a retirement plan or IRA, consider making an appointment with your bank to talk about your options. If you do have one, consider making a contribution to your account with your savings from Jerry.
Even just putting a small amount each month into an account as an emergency savings fund can go a long way. Starting small by just putting away $5 to $10 a week can have a big impact in the long run.
Invest in education
Is there a class you’ve been wanting to take, or a new skill you’ve been wanting to learn? Maybe it’s an art class, a writing class or a sign language class.
It could be something you need to learn for work (which you might be reimbursed for anyway) or something you just want to learn for fun. You can even sign up for
MasterClassstarting at only $15 a month and have access to a lot of cool content.
