Money’s getting tighter all the time. But there are many ways to save. One of the best is learning skills that will save money. Here are some of the best you can learn pretty quickly.

PC Hardware and Operating Systems

It’s hard to find someone who doesn’t use a computer somehow, from smartphones to tablets and desktop PCs. These use operating systems such as Windows, iOS, and Android. You can avoid most problems if you learn to use these properly. And while there’s no substitute for a computer repair professional, you can also save a lot of money if you know the basics of PC hardware. For example, installing a new graphics card or a new RAM DIMM is simpler than you think and takes less than five minutes. So you can do it yourself for free.

Learning to Cook for Yourself

Fresh cooking is among the best ways to take care of yourself. Unfortunately, pre-prepared meals and takeout food are often full of harmful preservatives. And they cost far more than making your own meals. Fortunately, it’s easy to learn how to cook for yourself these days. YouTube has tons of videos for beginners. And most TV channels have celebrity chefs showing you how to do something. But if you want a more social experience, you can use Google to find local beginner cooking classes that offer you things like basic knife skills and breadmaking.

Skills that Will Save Money Include Bookkeeping

Learning how to keep your own books is something you should do ASAP. Unfortunately, so many people are in debt. In the United States alone, the average debt is around $90,000. And most people allow debts to spiral. But most issues can be avoided with simple income and expenditure tracking. You can learn bookkeeping skills at night classes and courses. But if you don’t have the time, you can also use cheap apps like Quickbooks. Additionally, bookkeeping becomes necessary for tracking taxes and managing finances if you are self-employed.

Web Development and Coding

Perhaps more of a niche subject than general, web development and coding are helpful for specific scenarios. For example, if you want to open an online eCommerce store, the cost could be between $5,0000 and $40,000, depending on what you need. However, it doesn’t take too long to learn basic web coding such as HTML and CSS. And with web builders, you don’t need to be an expert. You just need to understand some of the core principles to tweak templates and plugins for what your site requires. It looks hard at first but becomes great fun in no time.

DIY, Painting, and Decorating

Like most people, you might like to change the look of your home every now and then. But renovating and decorating can become very expensive because of the skills involved. But for the most part, you can learn these skills yourself. Therefore, you can save a ton of money on basic stuff like painting, varnishing, and plastering. You can save your money by hiring professionals to finish more complex jobs like plumbing and electrics. However, you could even take classes in those if you wish. But these could take some time and dedication.


You can save tons of money by learning to do some things for yourself. Some of the easiest and quickest skills include computer hardware and software, cooking, and doing your own books.
