How to Live Below Your Means (Without Feeling Deprived)

 

There are only two ways to live below your means: One is to earn more; the other is to spend less.

Living below your means boasts obvious benefits including increased financial security and decreased financial stress. Having a savings net is also a critical step toward self-sufficiency because it provides a buffer against setback, too.

This week, I offer 10 tricks to help you live below your means without leaving you feeling as though you’re missing out.
