You should never pay full price for anything. Debt drags you down when the unexpected happens. But once you pay it off, you've given yourself a raise.
What You Can Do
Do your research. You can find ways to save, then pick the ones that are easiest and most relevant for your livestyle. (Sites and apps mentioned in this show are listed below in Resources.)
You can live a great quality of life leaving within your means, but first you have to decide that's what you really want to do. Next, examine your finances to see where there's room to change your system.
Manage your income. Are there new skills you can learn to boost it? Can you parlay it into a digital-based side hustle? What are you naturally good at that can be marketed for pay?
