As the cost of living continues to rise, with increases ranging from 6.7% to 9.5%, a growing number of Australians find themselves stuck in the cycle of living pay check to pay check.

And when financial stress hits, the first casualty is often our budgeting and savings efforts.

In today’s episode, I will explore effective strategies to break free from this cycle and have a candid conversation with my guest Mel about her own financial struggles and perspectives on money management.

Many who live pay check to pay check lack an emergency fund, leaving them vulnerable when unexpected expenses arise. Often, they turn to Buy Now, Pay Later schemes or credit card debt, which worsen their financial difficulties as they struggle to repay these debts.

To regain control of your financial situation and start building wealth for your future, you need to begin planning and take a deep dive into your spending habits. Identifying where your money goes is the first step toward making necessary changes to escape the cycle of financial survival.

In my own experience, I discovered I was overspending at the butchers due to having three teenagers who seemed like bottomless pits. I made a conscious decision to adjust my spending habits, ensuring that I spent less than $10 per meal to feed my family three to four times a week.

In this episode we will share plenty of valuable tips on reducing grocery expenses. Mel and her fiancé have developed a useful strategy to cut costs.
