We need money to live. We need to pay for things each month. We need to pay for our house or apartment. We need to pay for utilities such as gas, electricity, and water. We need to pay for food. We need to pay for trains and buses. We may also pay for things when going out with our friends.
Most people make a budget each month. Then, we know how much money we have. We know how much we need to pay for things. And, we know how much money we have left. We know how much we can spend on other things we want.
Sometimes, however, we have to pay for something extra. We have to pay for something that is not in our budget. Maybe, it’s a friend’s birthday. We want to buy them something special. Or, maybe our washing machine stops working. We need to buy a new one. Maybe, we become sick. We have to pay to see a doctor.
Sometimes, it can be difficult to pay for all the things we need every month. Maybe, we do not have much money. Maybe, our job does not pay well. Or, we have to pay a lot of money to study at school. Maybe, we just spend too much money. However, there are many ways we can use less money every month. There are many ways we can live more cheaply. This can leave us with more money for the things we want to do.
