How Do I Actually FOLLOW The Budget?

One of the most common questions we receive is:

“Joe, I know how to prepare a budget.   We just can’t find a way to stick to the budget.”

So …   My question to those of you who ARE following the budget you prepare each month is:

What advice would you give this person?   How do you ensure that you follow your budget?

SUCCESS STORY: Lower Car and Home Insurance!

 

A participant in the Financial Learning Experience wrote me to tell us how much they saved by shopping their car and home insurance!   You can too – just click HERE to get quotes from tons of agents in your area!
====================================================================
My husband and I have had [Insert Big Insurer Here] for 33+ years!   My husband was already with [Big Insurer]when we married in the 1970’s, so I just changed my insurance over with his.   We had never had any problems with them and since they were local, we had come to know them personally.
After hearing you say that everyone should shop around for insurance premiums at least every two years, I decided to do just that.   I called our insurance company to get some quotes and explained to them that I had been advised to shop around for the best rates.   My agency just said, well you have many discounts with us, including over 10+ years accident free (I now think of all the money I could have saved while being accident free during those 10+ years!).
There was no offer to even “look” at our policies to see if they could make any adjustments to give us better rates. There was only  the sound of “confidence,” the confidence that says, “someone who had been with  us for 33+ years will not change.”
YOOHOO………THANKS TO YOU FOR THE CHANGE THAT DID TAKE PLACE!!!!!!

Here is a breakdown:
AUTO INSURANCE
  • Vehicle 1       [WAS: Big Insurer] = $723.96         [IS:   New Big Insurer] = $415             Savings/year: $308.96
  • Vehicle2         [WAS: Big Insurer] = $470.52         [IS:   New Big Insurer] = $281             Savings/year: $189.52
  • Vehicle 3       [WAS: Big Insurer] = $370.46         [IS:   New Big Insurer] = $289             Savings/year: $ 81.46

 

Totals for the year:     [WAS: Big Insurer] =$1564.94       [IS:   New Big Insurer] Total =$985     Savings/Year $579.94
HOMEOWNER’S INSURANCE
[WAS: Big Insurer] = $450           [IS:   New Big Insurer] = $286             Savings/year: $164.00

Also, we raised the amount of coverage and kept the same deductibles for all three vehicles and for our home!!!!!!

Thanks to your Financial Learning Experience at New Spring at the Greenville Campus, we are now paying

$743.94 LESS PER YEAR BABY!!!!

YAHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!
HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT     HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT!!!!
CAN’T SAY THANK YOU ENOUGH!   I WILL ALWAYS AND FOREVER SHOP AROUND FOR INSURANCE QUOTES IN THE FUTURE!
Thank you so very much!
