Do you ever wonder why it just seems like your bank accounts look like they’re squeezing every last penny they have? Or does your bank account look nice and comfortable to you? Well there are multiple ways on how to keep track of your spending to make sure that 1.) All your transactions are yours and nobodies else 2.) You can keep track and maybe save more if you’d want. A great app for doing that is Mint. Now, there are hundreds of apps that can help you but, I personally use Mint and I have noticed a difference. I also recommend using the old school pen and paper method. Using a small notebook and writing out everything is diligent but if its easier for you that way, then do it!
Subscriptions! These are so convenient but…do you really need ALL of them? I just realized that I was paying almost $150 extra for stuff I totally forgot about and stuff that I kind of sort of wanted but did not need. So I scanned through my bank account and decided to unsubscribe to them, now I have an extra $150 a month to either save or use as some mad money…but I will probably save, at least half of it 🙂
Lastly for now, there are always “side-hustles.” There are a ton of opportunities that can add extra income for you. Pinterest has a million and one sites that can lead you on how to make that extra income. I have a few boards on there showing different ways on how to earn money than the normal job. I used Rover for a time being and absolutely loved it. Not only was I earning money but I also got to get in some exercise from walking and having fun with all the animals that I was able to take care of! Always remember when there is a will, there’s a way. There’s opportunity at everyone’s fingertips you just have to go for it.
