The Budget Diet is a diet for your wallet…not your waistline, and sometimes your overspending requires your wallet to go on a CRASH DIET!
If you’re in need of some serious savings, consider this your weekly challenge!
It’s a simple 3-step process, here’s how:
#1. You must know the amount of your weekly allowance…see part 1.
#2. Once you’re used to spending your weekly allowance and not a penny more…let the crash diet begin!
#3. Starting this week, allow yourself to only spend half of your weekly allowance! Example: If your weekly allowance is $350, you’re going to have to live on $175…food, fun, gas, dry cleaner, etc. Continue the crash diet for 4 weeks!
This is a tough challenge, but it will force you to change some spending habits & save a lot of money!
You’ll have to think twice about every purchase!
The Budget Diet girl suggests having a reward to make this challenge more fun! So…take the money you saved & buy something you really want or take a weekend trip! Get the entire family involved in this challenge!
