Kelly Blodgett launched Money Gal Coaching with a goal of serving people who, like her, were burdened by debt. You can get her tips for paying down debt on a regular basis at Bring Me The News, in addition to the Money Gal Coaching website and Facebook page. In her words, these are tips and tricks that she used to pay off debt. 

Let’s get straight to the point. Budgets are the key to building wealth and while you might know the importance of one, I don’t know if you are giving them as much credit as they deserve.

Ramsey Solutions, the Dave Ramsey empire, conducted the largest survey of millionaires, with over 10,000 participants, all to find out what some of the common trends were.

Here is what they found:

Since the holidays are here, and 52% of us Millennials are going into debt because of it, I’m here to offer a solution. Don’t wake up in January with your credit cards maxed, desperate to cure your holiday hangover. Let’s change the path you might be headed down.

Here is a free, easy-to-use template to get your holiday budget created today! Use this spreadsheet to organize your holiday spending categories, assign dollar amounts to avoid debt and record your transactions to help you stay within budget.

While this year’s budget may not be fancy, we only have a few weeks until the big holiday so let’s be realistic with how much you can save. I want you to know that it’s OK. Twenty-twenty has tested us, pushed us and prodded us to act differently.

So here we are, creating a budget, changing our spending habits and building a future for ourselves because we deserve more than just going to work and paying our bills.

Thanks 2020 for the wakeup call.
