Savings Day – Limbo Illustration

It’s Build Your Savings Day!

The way to save is to spend less than you earn. It sounds easy, right? Unfortunately, it’s often our greatest financial challenge. Growing up, I spent hours roller-skating on Saturday nights and it was always a highlight to play Limbo. The goal was to see who could skate underneath the limbo bar without knocking it off.  I wasn’t limber enough to ever win, but it was fun!

Let’s imagine that a Limbo bar represents your income. Your expenses must be less than your income to keep you under the bar. Lower your expenses or raise your income, and you can live beneath your means. Study your budget from the perspective of both income and expenses.
