    Some good tips I've picked up along the way.
    Keep track of your spending.
    Review your spending and recognise areas which can be improved.
    Review your bills and call your providers ask for new bundles or plans chances are you can reduce your monthly bills.
    Living expenses such as groceries entertainment and spending money and the such should be budgeted, you might not always stick to it but at least it gives you a goal to reach.
    Plan your weekly menu and shop with a list and a calculator, look out for specials. Shop local for meat fruit and vegetables theyre usually cheaper than buying at coles or woolies.
    If you dont know yet if you spend more or less than your income yearly, do a yearly budget, if your outings are more than your income you'll need to make some changes.
    Hope those help
