Since I have been on a financial Diet, I have cut my spending down, paid off debt, and saving more money. At the same time do things that makes me happy.
Starting in the Spring 3 Months I am not working so I have to tighten my budget even more. Here are 10 ways I prepare for unemployment.
1. Pay off credit card debt,
2. Cancel subscription
3. Cut expenses
4. Pay up as many expenses for 2-3 months
5. Cut back on spending
6. Sell any and everything
7. Work Side hustles
9. Use Groupons, gift card and Fun Jar
10. Saved money
This is when I rely on savings, selling stuff and working my side hustles. I also rely on reward programs to supplement my purchases and Groupons, gift cards and Fun Jar for activities. During this time I challenge myself to save money. Who saves money while they are unemployed? Since I paid some expenses 2 months ahead, I only have one full month of bills to pay. That way I am not stressing over money during these 3 months I am off.
Now that I prepare myself for unemployment I can relax a little and have fun playing in my closet.
