If you are like millions of Americans, a single missed paycheck will bring your financial house of cards to the ground around you. I lived like that for a couple of decades until the cards came crashing down around my ears. An unexpected stretch of unemployment made me open my eyes and look for a way off of the merry-go-round I had been living on. Here are a few tips that may help you stop living paycheck to paycheck.
Create a realistic budget. Many of us track the big expenses(rent/mortgage, utilities, phone), but neglect the other things like food, gas, and clothing. Your monthly budget should include every possible item that you will face including a set amount for savings. Pay the savings as if it is a bill.
