Wish you had more money in your budget?
The answer is probably and enthusiastic YES! Unless you’re on a budget, that can be really hard to do. So first and foremost, create a budget and you’ll be amazed at how much money is laying around.

It’s time to stop spending money on things that drain your budget, and find more frugal ways to enjoy the things you love.
If you want to save more money in your budget, make some of these changes as soon as possible!
1. Get Rid of Cable: Netflix is Better Anyway
I don’t know very many people who still pay for cable. I get a “sweet offer” in the mail every few weeks to bundle my internet with cable to “save” all kinds of money. However, cable has about a bajillion channels I don’t want or need. Of course I can use DVR, but why do I need to record when I can just watch Netflix or Hulu.
Netflix and Hulu have everything I “need” when it comes to tv shows and movies. I can pause, stop, rewind, and watch over and over again. Plus it’s crazy cheap! Even with the price increase, it’s only $10 a month. And if you split it with a friend and share the same account, it’s even cheaper.
The only thing I really miss out on is sports, but I can track everything I need on my phone.
