The first is to find ways to increase the money we bring in. That can involve using our high-income skills at our day job, saving more, learning how to invest, or getting an additional income stream through side hustles.
Examine Your SpendingThe crux of learning how to stop spending money is first to identify where you are spending money. You can only do this with the right organizational tools, as you won’t be able to tell where you spend money.
Set a Savings GoalA savings goal should be realistic. You always want to save more money, so you have to identify the amount you want to save every month, thus allowing you to achieve short, medium, and long-term goals.
