So, I’ve been dealing with a lot of financial worries lately, because I’ve been trying to make it work paycheck to paycheck. And I just made this realization. I don’t have to live like that. I can cut a few things from my weekly expenses.
Like all that fast food.
I will start going to the grocery store and getting things I know I will need for the week. While that sounds more expensive at first glance, it beats spending $100 a week on unhealthy, at this point disgusting food.
I am going to create my monthly budget, and share it with you guys on here. I will also share my progress report with you: how my $12 savings account will hopefully start to grow as my expenses shrink.
Keep in mind, I said hopefully.
I’m going to put my adulthood to the test, and see how it works.
Before I sign off, here’s one very important budgeting tip I have for you.
When it comes to expenses, overestimate every single one to the nearest ten. For example, my monthly phone bill is $45. I overestimate that to $50, and I come out a little on top every month. It’s not much at first, but you’ll see quite a difference if you do this round up with every expense.
That’s all I’ve got for you right now, but I promise I’ll visit soon and share my progress with you all.
