How to Save More Money with the Zero Day Challenge - Zero Day Finance: If you’re like me, you probably have a liiiiittle trouble with spending too much money. And I totally get it. Our entire lifestyle is centered around consumerism. From fashion styles that change on a yearly basis to $1,000 phones being released what seems yearly, even swanky $25 ice cream scoops that use your body heat to melt ice cream. It’s tough to avoid the rampant spending associated with our modern, consumer-based society. And what happens when you spend money like this? Saving money is difficult, if almost impossible.
I always thought that I was pretty frugal. At the end of 2016, I decided to put my money where my mouth was, and actually track my spending. It was much worse than I could have ever thought. In 2016, I spent a total of $58,000. That’s $4,800 per month, or $159 per day. I think back to this time, and think about all of the money that I could have saved.
