A list of your income and expenses, no matter how complete, is not a spending plan, but is the information you need to create a spending plan. And, a paycheck_by_paycheck spending plan will help ensure the success of, or at least help prevent the failure of your budget.
Do some comparison shopping for services. Many families have eliminated a land line in favor of cell phones or a cheaper internet phone service. My own cell phone company also sells home internet phone service for บ a month. My old phone service cost me about ์ a month after paying fees and taxes. I even got to keep my old phone number. That was a very painless way to save 軸 a year. I also did some auto insurance rate comparison shopping. I combined my home and car policies with another top company and saved almost 赨 a month! Now my savings total is up to 趚 a month, and I have not given up anything.
