We switched to Consumer Cellular from Verizon.  Our bill is now $50.00 a month instead of 140.00.  Did not see any decline in service and they are VERY nice to deal with

When prosperity comes do not use all of it. I am sure my reply will be poofed so read quickly.

Read "The Millionarie Next Store".

If you have never had to budget I think it is a little late to try.

I do not think you are willing to try anything.

Get rid of you cell phone.

Pay cash as often as possible.

Dollar Tree

Library

Observe those people that you believe are well-off.

Really observe

Shop at Good will

Read Dave Ramsey

Think,think,think

Know good value.

Cable TV

Streaming

Tide?? You can purchase laundry detergent for a $1.00 elsewhere. Our clothes are clean and smell good.

What do you buy at the grocery store and what are the prices? Seems like a lot.

We did the same thing. We were nervous about switching but we are so pleased that we did.

Plan your meals and grocery shopping according to the grocery ads online.  Eat what's on sale that week.  Take advantage of BOGO deals.

 

Plan your shopping/errands/trips so gas usage is more efficient.

 

See if there's less expensive phone, TV, internet service with other providers.

Hello,buyornot, I save money on my food budget by cooking from scratch. 

 

Convenience foods cost too much.  I am just on my own, but if your family (or storage capacity) is large, buy in bulk at a place such as Costco.
