Time has become a rare commodity in Singapore's fast-paced society. But there are circumstances where if you were to trim a minute here and there off from your usual routine, you could start to see some amazing money savings - and the time saved can be used to do more meaningful things.
We at GET.com will show you three easy ways to save time and money at the same time:
1. Start Shopping Online
Online grocery shopping has become a huge trend in Singapore, and there is little doubt about the amount of time you can save by using this service.
Not only does this save you time, bigger market players like Redmart and Fairprice online also offer exclusive deals for online purchases. What's more, some even offer a free delivery service with a minimum purchase.
This could also help you stick to your shopping budget better, since you can immediately see the final price of your shopping and you won't get distracted with other items that you don't really need (which are generally placed in strategic areas of brick-and-mortar stores to lure you to buy them).
2. Order Tingkat Meals

Ever considered ordering 'Tingkat' meals? For just around $200, most Tingkat catering companies can supply a 20-day spread of three to four dishes (2 pax) to your doorstep. This can work out to be cheaper than eating out at food courts. Not to mention the time saved on toiling over the stove and washing plates, which can now be used for quality family bonding or relaxation.
3. Buy Insurance Online
New insurance comparison websites these days allow consumers to search for the exact type of coverage they need - no up-selling and cross-selling from financial advisors who are really earning a huge commission on what you buy from them.
Besides, any reputable insurance company will definitely have their own website where you can check the terms and conditions of each policy in detail.
If you do it right, it is possible to have more money in your purse and more extra time for your loved ones.
Working life is stressful enough, so learn to take control of your time and spending to make your life easier. Some of the life hacks available don't require life-changing tactics but only a tweak in our daily habits.
