UNDATED (KTHV) -- Linda Tucker with Consumer Credit Counseling Service sits down with THV's Liz Massey. Tucker will be on Today's THV at 6:30 every Monday in April to talk about important financial issues.
This week we're talking about budgeting and spending habits. A lot of people don't have budgets and many people don't know what they're spending.
Tucker says it's important to track your expenses and create a budget. Write down all the money you bring in. Then write down all your expenses. Tucker says you can customize your budget to fit your lifestyle. You need to realize what you need versus what you want.
You can also involve your entire family. A joint effort is better. Make it fun. Set goals, write down every cent you spend.
One easy way to save money is instead of eating lunch out 5 days a week, brown bag it 2 of those days.
Next Monday, Linda Tucker will be in to talk about Savings.
