Sell What you don’t use:
There are so many websites where u can sell used products or exchange them for something useful. Even social media platforms like WhatsApp, Facebook and Instagram can help you reach interested buyers in a jiffy.

Avoid using a credit card:

Nobody can start saving if they are in debt. Therefore, our advice to you is to stay as far away from credit cards as possible.
