Sorry this tip is so late today! It’s been a crazy busy yet super productive day! (I had a really long to-do list and I got to cross off everything on it! I LOVE that feeling.)
Helpful tip: If you are over your budget or things are tight, don’t go to the store. Don’t check the ads, don’t go to the store, just don’t do it. My mom always says, “If you can’t afford it or don’t need it, it’s not a good deal no matter what the price.” Make do with what you have. If you’re missing an ingredient for a recipe, just leave it out or try to substitute something else in it’s place. You can do it. You can have the self control to stick to a budget!
Have I ever mentioned my mom before? She’s a family financial planner. Almost everything I know about saving money, I learned from her. She’ll be giving a presentation on budgeting in Mesa on Nov 12! If any of you are interested leave a comment with your email and I’ll send you the details!
