Depending on where you are , It can bring in around $200 bucks a month, not bad for something you make naturally: plus you get the added bonus of helping people who have a variety of different illnesses with their treatments.
There’s tons of websites out there with lists on cutting your power bills down so you can save that money but unless you’re keeping track of how much you were spending before that’s not going to really help much, so I suggest building a spreadsheet of what you’re spending now, and then try to cut down on a lot of those kinds of energy /water/ utilities costs and comparing them. This will help you figure out how much you’re saving exactly and then you can move all that money just directly into savings.
Good luck with your money saving and saving up for that down payment!
