Did you know that no matter how much money they make, more than 70% of people in the US have less than $1,000 in savings? Crazy, right? I’m thinking they need some tips to live a frugal life.
What’s more interesting is that this issue doesn’t have anything to do with income. Even people who are making more than $100,000 to $150,000 per year can’t seem to save money.
In our defense, though, saving money is hard. We have a large medical expense, car repair bill, debt, entertainment, lifestyle, etc.
But imagine in that financial condition you have to face an SHTF situation. Unprepared. Can you survive?
If you don’t want that to happen, there’s a solution that you can do right now: start living a frugal life.
Don’t get me wrong, being frugal doesn’t mean you have to be a cheapskate or flip your lifestyle 180 degrees. Here are 63 ways you can save money without ditching the things you love.
