Saving money doesn’t have to be difficult. The financial life you want to live is in your reach and you can even save money on a tight budget. Use your extra money to build savings and wipe out debt.
These are things I have saved for using my frugal ways:
- an emergency fund that covers nine months of our household expenses
- vacation fund
- Retirement (Roth IRA, 403b)
- Christmas Fund
- Down Payment for Car
Above are the things I like to use my extra money on, but you can obviously add to these categories and create separate sinking funds (specific accounts) depending on your goals.
As you read you will learn, life is still fun with a budget and you can still do things in life you want to do, but do them in a cheaper way. Who doesn’t want an extra $100 in their bank account at the end of the month?
