I have a confession to make.

I’m addicted to overpriced smoothies and fancy coffee.

There. I said it.

Whether it’s smoothies, coffee, dining out, clothes, Uber fees, etc., the busier you get, the more systems you need in place to keep your spending habits in check so you’re not blowing all your hard-earned dough.

Speaking from personal experience, I know that without the systems I teach my clients and FWW community, most of my money–if not all of it–would be spent on those smoothies and that coffee.

I know, I know…I’m so L.A., and I have no problem admitting it!

And while it may seem hard at times, finding ways to save more of the money you make is so much easier once you understand some basic strategies to help you do so.

In today’s Financially Wise Living episode, I’m sharing my best tip to help you save more money–and the good news is, it doesn’t take that much time at all to set up. Thank goodness!

Come on over to the blog to watch the episode, and I’d love to know: how do you save more of the money you make every month? Leave a comment and tell us!

I always love hearing your success stories, and I know it helps other Financially Wise Women, too.
