When we went down to one wage we kept spending as if we were still on 2 wages and ended up getting ourselves in trouble. We now budget, we follow the barefoot investors way of budgeting and it is working well for us. I also plan all our meals for the week and only buy for those meals. I buy our groceries online and try to buy everything on sale or home brand. We also contribute to our bills each pay e.g- we automatically put $100 onto our power bill each pay so it isn’t such a shock when the bill comes in.
Good luck with everything! Financial pressure is horrible. xx
