I have a rule with my money I've managed to save up 10gs, I never let my money go under that amount
@DavidRomeroBruh, I did the same. I saved up 6 months worth of expenses and I leave it easily accessible just in case of an emergency.
Edit: however I do understand having one small income that is almost to the dollar what your bills are.
@MetalHeadTony, my brother and his gd are always like u have more money than us cuz they both work. It may be true but for me I set a lock on myself where I cannot access the money I have mentally like I won't use it. I'll only use the money I have over the current limit o set for myself just cuz I don't want to see that number drop
@DavidRomeroBruh, all of these replies give me hope for America’s future
I usually try to give myself about $100-150 a month for things like food, gas, and any little things I might want if I can afford to spare that much. Rest typically goes to bills and saving. Though I'm not exactly great about keeping within that limit
