So, how much do you think you could save by bringing your lunch to work versus eating out? You will be amazed at the impact such a little thing can have on your monthly budget. The biggest issue that many Americans face today is household cash flow. Like a business, when your payables exceed your receivables, the owners don't make a profit and have to make cuts. As a household, you want to maximize every dollar so you have more money available to actually do the things that are important for you and your family. Whether it is a family vacation, or a plasma TV, it is much better to have the cash on hand to pay for it today, than to increase your debt and spend years struggling to pay it back.
