All of us know and understand well enough that, if needed, we could be saving more. But, for most of us, increasing our savings is hard solely because our lifestyle does not allow us to.
You might not be living the most luxurious lifestyle and spending mindlessly, but you still may have many habits that could be reduced to save you a meaningful sum.
To understand exactly how much you can save, you should live frugally for a week! Living frugally means no unnecessary shopping, no fancy dinners, drinks, etc., or anything that you feel is a desire for you.
It sounds a little too harsh to read, right? It kinda is. That is why I only suggest it for a week or for a month(if you can sustain it) so you can know how little money you could survive on.
People think frugality ties you to the bare minimum, but in reality, if done right, it frees you from the shackles of money as it no longer controls you.
