Financial Advice:  It takes 21 consecutive days to form a habit. The best Habit to build right now is to build a budget where you anticipate how much income and expenses you will generate for an entire month and compare it to the actual amount at the end of the month. The best way to save money is to pay attention to the variable cost. Reducing those expenses will allow you to meet short and long term goals while putting money aside for your savings account.
