Number 1 Trick to Stop Worrying About Money

Did you know that financial worries keep 62% of people up at night? According to a survey by Creditcards.com, money worries interfere with a good night’s sleep. If you are one of those people, then you know exactly what I’m talking about. But how do you get over money worries? You fix your money problem!

Don’t Wait! Fix Your Money Problems Now!

What? There’s a way to fix money problems? Yes. Money problems start because of mismanagement. When data shows that 50% of Americans live paycheck to paycheck, you know there is a serious money management problem in this country.

person with money worries

What’s the top money problem?

The number 1 problem is that people spend more than they earn. They rack up credit card debt to buy things they want right now, instead of waiting until they can afford it.

The 2nd biggest problem is that most people don’t budget and they have no idea how much money they are wasting on useless things. The issue is that people hate budgeting. It’s super boring! And it’s hard work. And you have to be a math genius to do it. Right? Wrong. Budgeting can be simple and easy, and anyone can do it. You just need a good program to follow.

Fix your money problems right now!

Look no further. I have created The Modern Mom’s EPIC Guide to Easy Budgeting. It’s available to you for free, right here on Momma Money Sense. I have used my years of work experience as an accountant and entrepreneur to come up with the perfect budget for people that hate budgeting. It’s easy. It’s doable. And it will keep you on track so that you stop overspending.

    Budgeting is definitely something that comes in handy with children. Because you want to supply their needs, but also manage their and your wants. So, figuring your finances around those is definitely key.

    I once to had this issue! We lived pay check to pay check for 2 years. It was thee most stressful years I have ever lived through. Not knowing when our power would be shut off or water etc. How we would have enough for food! Finally I decided to sit down, and figure out all our bills and how much we spend on food. And I told my girlfriend we cannot buy anything we do not need. Just the basics. Any extra money went in the bank into my savings account! After 1 month of doing this we had save $348. We continued for the whole year not touching that money, pretending that we were broke. Do you know I saved up $4,372! I was amazed. And we still do this 6 years later. This money comes in handy for so many things, if the house needs a repair, washer or dryer break, need the car fixed or the kids need something for school etc.

    I try not to worry about finances, but lately it’s been impossible not to. My mother-in-law is having to go into an assisted living facility and she doesn’t have enough income to cover the monthly costs. Her house has a mortgage and is in really bad shape (she’s a hoarder, to the point where the town got a court order for her to clean it up). I think we finally found a solution without us having to pay the difference (not that either sister-in-law, who are her actual daughters, have done much of anything to help). Let’s just say that the situation has my husband on blood pressure meds, which he’s never needed. Once we’re over this stress, I think I can just relax a bit and not worry about money as much as we have been recently.

    I cannot emphasize the importance of budgeting enough! If people really worked out budgets, I think there would be less debt. Sure we all want things and it’s easy to just pile it on the credit card – but you have to be mindful of what you can afford and when, or you can get waaaay in over your head. Great post!

    Budgeting is HARD! We are custodial grandparents and two years ago enrolled our grandson in private school. It’s been especially difficult financially because we live in a very rural area. It was 85 miles one way to school, so it wasn’t feasible to commute. We ended up purchasing a second home in the city where the school is located and moved here for the six years he would be in school. (Yes, after much research we determined it was cheaper to buy than rent and the local market is quickly growing!) We kept our previous home because it’s the home we custom built for ourselves when we retired and we plan to go back when he graduates. It’s become essential for us to budget and save where we can, but it was the best decision we could have made and are happy we did it.
