5% Reduction in Spending

Cutting cost out of your budget can be mundane and many of us don’t succeed at it because we approach it randomly, without a plan.

What if you and your spouse had a contest of cutting a certain percentage, let’s say 5%, out of your 5-10 spending categories? Few categories like your mortgage payment may not qualify, but a majority of what you spend money on will be a perfect candidate for this challenge.

So for example, if you spend $500 on groceries every month, 5% reduction would mean $25 dollars a month. You can get creative with meal planning and look for ways to eliminate junk food that costs you extra dollars every month but adds little to no nutritional value.
