However, at the end of the month, you use your credit card. 2 - You get a raise or promotion, and your expenses automatically rise. 3 - Your car is the fanciest on your block, but you can't afford to fix your home's air conditioner. Once you've admitted you have a problem, use these helpful tips to trim your bottom line.
