Look for ways to reduce expenses. It’s time to go into ‘survival’ mode. Anything that’s not essential must be eliminated. No one likes to give up their cable TV, cell phones or bowling leagues…....If you have children, don’t hide the fact that you need to spend less. You won’t ruin their childhood. Don’t scare them with talk of living under an overpass. But don’t pretend that nothing has changed in your life.
I’m looking for someone to tell me how to go about making a budget for our family’s groceries. I have no idea as to how to even start. Any suggestions?
