Twenty-one percent of Americans do not have a savings account and by making a few changes, putting money in the bank can be easier than most things.
Unshuld suggests that planning meals for the week will help to cut down on grocery bills. Another good way to cut back is to find a free event that is going on each month and lastly, Unshuld suggest getting rid of clutter and selling your old items.
