COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Getting control of your finances is a goal that you can achieve, even if you're on a shoestring budget. But, it's going to take some discipline as most financial experts tell us. Glenn Smith, Financial Representative, Primerica, has been assisting people with financial needs analysis for almost 20 years.

He recommends cutting the fat and keeping the necessities.  "You don't need cable and watching that cell phone bill. I had a lady that I consulted with yesterday and she's paying $180.00 a month in cell phone bills.

Other strategies include reducing debt and saving money.  "In order to do that you must look at your spending habits and find ways to cut costs as well as ways to increase your income without taking on another 40 hours a week job," says Smith.

You can start today saving money even its $5, $10, or $20 at a time; it will add up in the long run. For a complete financial needs analysis, contact Glenn Smith @ 706-596-0060.
