First, what I would do is to make a shopping list, that way I know the things that I need, because when you go shopping without a list, it’s really easy to go crazy. Another thing that I would do is take only the cash that I need, so that I do not expend a lot of money on not important stuff and I will be forced to only work with the cash I have on my hand. Also, before I buy anything, I ask myself: Do I really need this?.

4. How much money could you save in a month without giving up too much?

It depends on how much money you earn. For example, I could only save 50$ a month, but if I stopped going out and buying as much as I do, then I could save 100$ a month. My goal this year is to save money for travel, school, and some dance sessions I wanted to attend to.
