Write down all your expenses.

Take your own lunch to work.
Eating out depletes your resources quickly. If you’ve been tracking your expenses, you’ll know what we mean by this. Quickly turn this around by bringing your own lunch to work. Practical and easy to do, you’ll save extra dollars by eating, well, in!
Sell your unwanted stuff.
It’s high time to get rid of stuff that you don’t need and make the most of them. A lot of people are on the prowl for pre-loved items that are used but not abused. Take advantage of this by putting the things you neither want nor need for sale. A garage sale almost never fails, so why not earn money while you’re making a major closet overhaul?
Take another look at your bills.
From subscription fees to daily living costs, looking at these bills will help you make better financial decisions moving forward. If you want to bring energy costs down, you would have to learn to conserve electricity. If you want to lower subscription fees, there might be certain shows that you’d have to live without.
