Frugal Living: How to Save Money

  1. 1. Frugal Living: How to Save MoneySigns of economic recovery, regardless of how robust and where they are read, are not likely to dent theglobal growth in payday loans. From the U.K. to the U.S., Canada and across the globe to Australia, shortterm loans made to employed individuals have become firmly ensconced during the recession as ameans of obtaining emergency money saving tips.The losers in this trending are credit cards, auto title loans and other forms of both secured andunsecured lending. As millions of people have either lost or been refused revolving credit, they havediscovered the low-commitment, short-term nature of payday loans. These are some of the reasons forthe surge in popularity of short term loans.Short Term Loans Now in Online Form:A dramatic innovation over the bricks-and-mortar retail locations of the past - short term cash loans canbe processed in about five minutes. The borrower can also execute the transaction entirely from apersonal computer, including when he or she can pay bills online with the emergency cash. This reducesthe time commitment from about 120 to 180 minutes down to about ten minutes altogether.Ease of transaction:The features of a payday loan are easily understood: It’s money for emergencies, based on (a partial)value of a paycheque. But the process is just as important, perhaps even more so. It just simply is easy,paperless and straightforward to take out short-term loans, with key benefits:Privacy:Transactions from a computer are largely protected from discovery by family and friends, as mightotherwise occur when going to a retail location.Speed:In the U.K., the payday loan can arrive in about one hour, deposited directly into the borrower’s bankaccount. In the U.S. and other countries, that might require a single business day for the transmission ofloan funds.Credit:Under most circumstances, borrowers do not need upper-tier credit scores. The loan is based on beingemployed, less so on past money saving tips management behaviours.Even as lending and credit loosen up, the behaviour of seeing payday loans as a normal means ofaccessing emergency money is likely to continue.
