Money management is one of the most important skills a person (especially a woman) can have, but it’s often never learned and properly utilized.
It’s not easy to live a life of frugality – to assess needs versus wants and avoid spending money on things that you don’t need.
However, it’s mandatory if you want to live a life of financial security and freedom.
If you aren’t a frugal person by nature, don’t worry! I wasn’t either in the beginning.
But, if I can change my ways, anyone can!
In this episode, I’m sharing 9 frugal habits that anyone can start implementing now to work towards proper money management.
Here’s a glance at this episode:
- [01:38] In this episode, I’m answering a City Girl Solutions question about the advice I would give to the version of myself 10 years ago.
- [05:01] Make it a habit of “paying yourself first”. Meaning, when money comes in, you save something before you do any spending.
- [07:41] When you keep tabs on your spending, you can make changes real-time to help you save money or get back on track.
- [13:25] Planning ahead for things you know are coming (or what to come) can be a great way to stick to your budget and avoid overspending.
