You are asked to go someplace you can’t afford. You are asked to be in a wedding & you can’t afford it. You know the situations. We all do. What to do?
You can say no. You can say the budget is tight right now. You can say you are saving up for something this month. You can suggest an alternative. Just don’t continually wreck the budget by doing whatever you are asked to do. That just piles up debt.
Or you can have a special savings account or slush fund for these unexpected budget busters.
