  • Before you go to the grocery store make a list and stick to it.Start going to swat meats things like socks,underwear makeup etc is super cheap cheaper than target and walmart.I used to have my business so I still buy wholesale anaways try to write out a budget as soon as you get paid pay all the bills first .Have two accounts one for bills and groceries and the other like the essentials and another like a mutual fund even if its two hundred a month you will have two thousand four hundred at the end of the year and you can withdraw with no your money .This month thats what I did and I have all my bills paid and christmas shopping done and have one thousand dollars left .I feel great because I saved alot .
