What do you do when your bank account never has any money, your finances are completely out of control and you find yourself super stressed just thinking about it...?
For most people, the problem is not that you don't have enough money, but that the money you DO have seems to slip right through your fingers almost right after you get paid. But it seems so difficult - how can you change that?
Most of us live busy lives, and it seems easier after a busy day when you're tired to hit the drive through or order take out pizza... But eating out gets expensive. Take out here and delivered pizza there really ads up fast and soon you have no idea where your money is going. It seems like there should be more money in the bank and the credit card bills are piling up. Hopefully someday you can catch up and put that debt behind you. But how has that worked out for you so far?
