Budgeting and saving money doesn't come naturally to many people, for obvious reasons: it's easy and tempting to spend money on non_essentials, even if your budget is tight. So how can you get on track with a realistic budget and save money? These strategies, taken together, have the very real potential to improve your financial situation.
Lastly, if the numbers still aren’t adding up, you can look at adjusting your fixed expenses. Doing so will be much more difficult and require greater discipline, but on close inspection a "need" may just be a “hard to part with.” Such decisions come with big trade_offs, so make sure you carefully weigh your options. Tip: Small savings can add up to a lot of money, so don’t overlook the little stuff. You might be surprised at how much extra money you accumulate by making one minor adjustment at a time.
