I have more month than money, what can I do?

Cutting Back

Taking a cold hard look at finances is something no one likes to do or talk about, but it's a reality we all have to face. If you are living on half of your former income (or less in many cases), you have a challenge ahead of you. You may need to realign some of your activities. How about packing some sandwiches for an outdoor meal at the park or picnic in your own backyard instead of a trip to McDonalds. Look for ways to cut out the extras. You'll be surprised as to how much you can save.
