You can spend ũ값 a month on your "wants" based on that ū귔 you're bringing home each month. You might consider doing without a few things and shifting some of this money to your "needs" column if you're coming up short there_not necessarily indefinitely but until you can get your needs down to a more manageable level. Remember, you still need 20 percent left over so you can save and pay down your debts according to the 50ቺተ plan. Now you have 轜 left, that last 20 percent. You know what to do with it. Pay down on debt, save for an emergency, and plan for your future.
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.
