Sticking to a budget is a great way to make your money work harder for you. The great thing about a budget is that you decide where your money goes. Give every dollar a job, and watch your financial dreams come true.

2. Plan ahead for unexpected expenses

Make a flat tire, emergency medical care, or even seasonal expenses like Back to School time less stressful by planning ahead for these expenses. Set aside a small amount of money each month in a separate savings account to keep your budget on track even when unexpected expenses occur.
