Money Saving Tips
1. Set a Budget
It is very important to set a budget so you know where every dollar you have coming in, is going out to. The first month or so will be a little difficult if you don't really know how much you spend each month on things like groceries, eating out, gas, clothing etc. The easiest way to set your budget and track your spending is with a budget tracker. Mint.com offers a free version that can help get you started AND get you organized. You can also use Quickbooks or just create your own for FREE using Microsoft Excel or Google Docs. Setting up a budget and tracking your spending will help you know exactly where you can make cuts and possible help save yourself hundreds of dollars each month.
2. Save for an Emergency (they do happen)
Debit expert and financial guru Dave Ramsey has developed what he calls Seven Baby Steps. These steps are designed to help you eliminate debit and create a stable financial future. One build on YOUR money, not on top of debit which can create issues down the road. The first baby step is to save up for an emergency. If you put away $1000 as quickly as you can by selling something, working overtime, skipping eating out for a month, whatever it is you can do to save that money do it. This creates a safety net for when emergencies arise. This way you can pay cash instead of creating even more debt. ONLY use it for an emergency!
