An easy way to get started is to simply set a budget for a single day. Creating a plan of action for the next day is a not-so-scary way to break the cycle of dread. You might realize that sticking to a budget isn’t as terrifying as you’ve made it out to be.
By budgeting each day and repeatedly facing your fears, you may find it easier to build savings and support your loved ones abroad.
