‘I avoid going places where I spend too much money’
Model-actor Karan Chhabra, currently on The Serial on Channel V, is well aware of his bad spending habits, so when he needs to take control of his expenses, he simply stops going out.
Karan Chhabra, who you can watch on The Serial on Channel V and Fear Files on Zee TV, discusses his money-saving tricks and tips, which include putting a stop to his social life and making a budget – but only when he needs to!
What are your money-saving tips and tricks?
I’m the sort of person who loves to travel and go out. But that doesn’t work out all the time. So when I’m going too far, I try to control my expenses and avoid visiting places where I spend most of my money. These costs may seem small, but they can really add up over time. Cut them out altogether and you will see how much you save. What I also tend to do at these times is budget properly and make a plan.
What was the last great deal you got?
It was the iPhone 5. I got it for just Rs. 30,000 last year. I don’t think you will get it for less than Rs.45,000 on the market even now.
Is there a product or service you don’t mind paying extra for?
Health comes first any day. I don’t mind paying extra for good healthcare facilities. It’s a must. I don’t mind paying extra for beauty products and spa either. I would also never put a cheap cream on my face.
