Save Like A Bear On YouTube
It’s taken far longer than I planned to edit, but finally here’s a video I was desperate to share. There are SO many daily opportunities to save, and the best part is that means we can start today if we want to change our spending routine.
These routines from a cast of animal characters combined with advice from James Clear’s Atomic Habits on creating rituals should help you save money and spend responsibly while making saving fun. (Pssst… Did you know you can listen to bestselling books for free? James Clear’s audiobook is included in a free trial of Audible).*
Don’t let your money control you; control your financial future and ask yourself the questions at the end because when you have a system, the goals take care of themselves.
This blog post has the original checklist that inspired this video:

My other channel Bear Meets Life is for colouring along with me if you like to relax with adult colouring books, gel pens, and some chill music! Why not?? One of my better lockdown discoveries, for sure. P.S. When you see whose picture I’m colouring in… well, let’s just say, people without a sense of humour need not apply.
How much will you save?

If you enjoy the episode, why not take a screenshot and share it out on Instagram or wherever you hang out online? Tag me @savelikeabear so I can see your comments, and perhaps give you a shoutout.
If you need a microphone whatever your profession or hobby, I use the Samson Q2U.
If you’re interested in podcasting, I use Spreaker for my hosting.
The mailing list functions thanks to email service provider ConvertKit (affiliate link).
I invested in the annual plan (which nets a discount on paying monthly). This is because when I start a project, I like to commit to seeing my goal through, so paying upfront ensured I wouldn’t quit emailing blog readers after a week!
You can start with a free plan though if you’re really not sure where you’re headed, or you’re technology shy (affiliate link). I find ConvertKit very easy to use though despite setting up automations and sequences and all that fancy jazz.
Many of the images on the blog are thanks to photographer and content extraordinaire Kayla Marie Butler.
Kayla offers a package of stock photos and marketing resources so that busy entrepreneurs have the power to quickly create content that boosts their traffic, leads and profits:
Kayla does offer free stock photos for anyone shy of investing in the future just yet. Or it’s possible to buy individual bundles of her photos from the Ivory Mix Stock Photo Shop. Kayla breaks these into categories, so that it’s easy to just buy stock photography for business and finance brands for example.
Let me know if you want to know what else I use to run the blog besides what’s mentioned on the Bear Resources page, or if you have questions. What do you need help with in your side hustle or business?
