If you aren’t talking about it today, you will tomorrow.
One way or another the recession is affecting everyone and I mean everyone. It’s a great feeling when you have two dollars to rub together to make ends meet.
Are you noticing your spending habits?
I hear people complain, but they haven’t changed how they manage their money. The only way for you to get out of your financial rut is to take responsibility of your spending and change your behavior.
5 Steps to financial relief
- Cut out the morning Cafe de latte
- Discontinue the daily newspaper (we are able to read articles via internet)
- Take a sack lunch to work
- Stop the gym membership (your home is a great obstacle)
- Save gas by walking to work or carpool
Of course there are many ways to save a dime or two, which will be discussed at a later time. But today it’s about taking baby steps.
The money saved from the financial relief can be added to a monthly bill to lower your finances and get you out of debt sooner.
