Its 'Tips for Tuesday' day!! And today I have one basic and easy tip! So simple, but many may find it hard to adjust to at first. The tip for today is DONT BE A CREDIT CARD SPENDER!!
Fact is that if you use cash for your spendings, you can pay better attention to how much you spend, and you can limit yourself better because you can carry the amount you intend to spend. It one of the greatest secrets to saving money if you are a shopper :D
You can make jars for each expense that you need within a week. For example: Groceries, Gas, Necessities, Other. You get the just of it.
I also added the fancy ol' $5 Savings Plan that has been floating around for a few years now.
Try it and let me know how it goes for you.
