Tightening Your Budget Belt

Hi everyone! Kathy Longo here with the Flourish Financially Challenge. Welcome to your weekly opportunity to take a few minutes to set a small goal that can help you achieve your larger aspirations. Today, I’m going to talk about Tightening Your Budget Belt.

Happy New Year! It is a perfect time to get serious about your financial goals and resolutions. Whether it’s due to a change in income or simply a decision to prioritize savings goals, we all need to tighten our budget belts sometimes. While it’s not easy to change your spending habits, it begins with reminding yourself of the difference between necessary spending and those purchases that are simply nice to have. In this episode, I share a simple practice that can help you take control of your spending and gain confidence to meet your budget goals.
