Budget Mondays

August 18, 2014

Monday – 8/18/2014

It’s Monday – a painful day for most people, yours truly included. Sometimes it is made even more painful as we remember just how much money we ended up spending over the weekend.

Budget

It’s one word that can make people cringe, angry and sad all at the same time; a rare occurrence indeed. There are plenty of reasons for this – people are told at work that their budgets are being cut, their ideas cannot be funded because they are not in the budget, and in our personal life, our budgets don’t usually quite match up to our desires.

The holiday shopping season is right around the corner if you really think about it (it seems to start right after the back-to-school shopping ends) , and holiday spending always has the potential to bust your carefully planned budget, but these tips are not exclusively for holiday savings. These same tips and techniques can be used at any time of year to improve you budgetary health.

Start now and you can save quite a nice bit of coin by the time you are ready to start shopping:

Here are the bulletpoints:

Adjust your W-4
Cut $1 a day from spending
Trim the fat on entertainment by $10 a month
Use those gift cads

I have attached the CNN video below
