    If You Used To Live Paycheck-To-Paycheck And Broke The Cycle, Tell Me How

    Advice, please.

    If you, like me, live in the US and get by paycheck to paycheck, you're far from in the minority. It turns out 61% of American workers live paycheck to paycheck — a number that was at 55% last year.

    If you used to live paycheck to paycheck, but don't anymore, I would like to know how!

    Maybe it was something small, like creating a budgeting spreadsheet and realizing you were spending an absolutely absurd amount of money on takeout.

    Or maybe it was something big, like selling your car.

    Whatever it is, head to the comments and let me — and everyone else trying to break out of the paycheck-to-paycheck cycle — know for a chance to be featured in a BuzzFeed Community post.
