Managing Your Finances Well = Saving More Money!

8 99

In my opinion, one of the most important ways to actually achieve your savings goals and be able to stick within the boundaries of your grocery budget (yes, even with wholesome and organic foods!) is by making sure that you are managing your money well in the first place.

In fact, I believe that so much that I actually started my newest book, Real Food on a Real Budget, with a chapter all about managing your grocery budget!

Personally, we use a software that we purchased called You Need a Budget, which I highly recommend! You can read my husband’s rave review of it here.

For those who are still in debt, though, or just not prepared to fork out the money on a software they’re unsure of, there’s a great alternative. I just learned about a site called Mint.com that offers some similar tools for budgeting and tracking your spending, except that it’s completely FREE to use!

If you’re eager to start cutting down your budget and getting your finances really under control, I would definitely look into Mint.com and see if it will work for you!

What do you use to manage your finances? Do you agree with me that you save more when you more carefully manage what you already have?
