Paying off debt: The little things mean a lot

In this season of resolutions, I’m going to resolve to spend $1.80 less than usual each day. Would you like to join me? Why would that small amount make a difference? Think about this: $1.80 comes out to roughly $12.50 a week. Saving a measly $12.50 a week on groceries is totally doable, right? Shop the sales, use a few coupons and skip a few convenience items. That’s $50 every 4 weeks or $650 a year you can put in the bank or begin paying off any debt you may have.

Is a desire for romance making you a victim?
