Sustainable spending
1. Analyze—Review spending for two months. Note that you spend x$ on groceries x$ on your car, x$ on dining out, etc. Then look at the analytics.
2. Brainstorm—What are one or two things you can do differently? Don’t try to change everything at once. Identify a couple of areas that you can make a change.
3. Change—Implement the changes in those one or two areas.
Rinse and repeat!
Also, automate savings into a retirement plan.
