(DailyThrive.com) – Does sitting down and figuring your bills every month make you cringe? Worried there may not be enough to make ends meet, much less save for retirement? It’s time to get real and start saving!
YouTuber Ashlynn Eaton shares her secret for saving $1000 each month.
Think you can do it? We know you can — you just need the right info and initiative to get started. Here’s how easy it is.
- Put away $1000 first. This means before paying or spending on anything, tuck the money straight in your savings account. Keep spending and saving accounts separate, so you’re not tempted to dip into it.
- Use shopping lists. Fulfill your mission every time. Create a list before heading to the store and stick to it. Avoid impulse buying and wait on big items you see at the store. You may realize a few days from now, you really didn’t need it.
- Slash expenses. Get down to a bare bones monthly budget and stick to it. Get rid of things like cable and monthly subscriptions you hardly use. Work on reducing things like auto insurance.
If you want to secure your future, or simply save for a nice vacation, do it in small bite-sized chunks. The goal is to get out of debt and have a secure financial future.
