No Spend November Day 2 Financial tip: highlight where your money is going
Remember, this is not about judgement, this is not about feeling bad, it’s about taking control of your financial situation . It’s time to sit down and highlight your expenses!
Step 1: Print your checking account statement and/or credit card statements.
Step 2: Grab your highlighter!
Step 3: Highlight anything that doesn’t bring you joy. This includes your rent, cable, Target, etc.
What was your aha moment?
Mine was definitely Target, apparently the meme applies, I can’t walk into Target and walk out without overspending. Think about what you’ve learned from this test. Are there expenses you could cut back on?
