Did You Do These 3 Things to Quit Living Paycheck to Paycheck?

For this standalone feature, we’re looking to spotlight someone who recharged their finances by going through their budget and doing the following three things: 1) Looking for money wasted by bank fees or unused subscriptions. 2) Finding areas where you were overspending, like a cable bill, then negotiated down. 3) Thinking hard about what to sacrifice now to make a big difference later. For instance, downsizing your car or home, taking on a roommate, other trade-offs. We want to relate to readers who are living paycheck to paycheck and don’t think there are obvious places to scale back.
