Welcome back, friends! Can you believe it’s almost April already? That means we’re almost a quarter of the way through 2019, that went crazy fast!

1 – $20 Latte (Not what it sounds like)
2 – Meal Planning
3 – Pay Yourself in Cash and Stash it Every Paycheck
For this one, I wouldn’t recommend stashing it in your house or apartment. Many financial institutions offer short-term CDs, Christmas Club accounts, or other short-term time-limited savings plans. Not only do you generate some extra income through interest earned, you don’t have to worry about the money being stolen from your place.
4 – Subscription Analysis/Elimination
I do this on a regular basis. If you read my Boost Mobile post: Boost Dealz Update, I dumped Boost Mobile after they gutted and later dropped their Boost Dealz app. That was a year ago and by switching to Unreal Mobile, I have saved half my cell phone bill $15/billing cycle with Unreal Mobile vs. $30/billing cycle with Boost Mobile. That’s $180 in savings over the past year.
I don’t have cable, but when I did every time they raised my rate, I dropped a portion of what I had been subscribing with them. End result, they got less of my money. I eventually dumped cable and only kept Internet for a while.
