Part of my efforts towards living minimally is being more conscious with my saving and spending habits. My spending habits are all too familiar to me, but I don’t think I even have saving habits. What I do know is that I save what’s left of my previous paycheck, as well as the money I earn from doing commission work (which, admittedly, isn’t always big). This, of course, is not the ideal way to save financially. Budgeting is also a bit overwhelming for me, so I thought of starting small instead. I searched online for ways to save more efficiently, and came across a 30-day money saving challenge. I read through the prompts and thought they were doable and manageable, so I decided to take it on.
