Most of us don't even realize how much of our hard earned wealth we squander each and every month on bills that really bring no real value to our lives.
Next to debt, bills are probably the #1 reason why so many of us live paycheck to paycheck. And no one ever dreamed of growing up to live like that.
The first step towards freedom from bills is pretty simple but almost no one does it. You just have to sit down and figure out how many bills you have and how much they are costing you each month.
Chances are you are pretty familiar with the big bills like the rent (or mortgage), the car note, car insurance, phone bill(s), etc. But you might be surprised about some of the small bills that really add up each month. For instance, how many streaming services are you subscribed to? How many subscription services are sending you packages in the mail each month? Do you still have cable?
Once you sit down and take an inventory of all your monthly bills, then you can begin to get rid of the ones that serve no purpose in your life. Yeah you might like the services tied to the bill, but is it really worth the monthly expense?
If you truly want to live free then you are going to have to make sacrifices! If you really want to be in control of your time, energy, and wealth in the future then you are going to stop blowing your money now and non-essentials.
The process of getting rid of bills is actually pretty painless these days. You can do most of it online. Or worst case scenario you may have to make a couple of phone calls. But in the span of a day you should be able to kill off all the bills that are taking money out of your pocket each month and not really giving you anything worthwhile in return.
With the money you save each month you can buy things you actually need, save up to pay off debt, invest in your future, or make donations to charity. All of these ideas are far better than just throwing your money at bills every 30 days!
