6 Ways Being Single Can Save You Money

Only 1 person to buy food for when you go out to eat or grab fast food.

You’ll save a lot of money on food. You could even use coupons to save money on food for yourself.

I highly recommend getting a monthly or yearly subscription to the Entertainment app so you can get coupons specifically for restaurants and other types of things in your area.


You don’t have to worry about buying gifts for holidays.

There are a lot of things people end up buying for when they have a significant other.

There’s Valentine’s Day, Sweetest Day, Birthday, Christmas, Anniversaries, and just random gifts in between.

You don’t have to worry about driving or traveling to them.

Depending on where a person lives, you could end up saving gas and money in general.

You aren’t planning dates for 2 people where you have to spend money when you’re single.

You probably won’t go out as much which means you won’t plan dates where money will be spent.

You can save money on contraceptives…

So this can be debatable because you could still be having sex, but for the most part… you won’t have to spend money on birth control or condoms if you’re truly single and not pursuing anyone at all.

You don’t have to worry about potentially getting into debt because of their spending habits.

Depending on the significant other you choose, they may have debt which could cause issues for your own personal spending habits.


So that’s my roundup of saving money benefits to being single.

What are some other ways you can save money when you’re single?

    Love this and yes… being single will save you money for sure and nI have enjoyed the years that I was single…. And maybe wish I had been single a bit more when I was younger 😉 I do have to say that I prefer having my other half around and when you find the right one for you….. they will be a partner in the money making process and pitch in.
