“When I re­alised how much I was spend­ing on un­nec­es­sary items, I stopped buy­ing take­away meals every day. I now take a packed lunch to work and bud­get for one take­away meal a week, so I don’t feel like I’m de­priv­ing my­self.” – Siza­khele Dlamini, 26, PR man­ager

“I firmly be­lieve in cre­at­ing a joint bud­get with your part­ner if you’re mar­ried or live to­gether. De­cide how much you want to save, and how much to spend on things like house­hold ex­penses and en­ter­tain­ment.” – Sheila Smith, 30, sales di­rec­tor

“I was swip­ing my credit card to my heart’s con­tent – and spend­ing way too much! So I de­cided to carry only the cash that I needed for each week. See­ing those notes dis­ap­pear out of my wal­let makes me think twice.” – Khanyi Madala, 28, mar­ket­ing man­ager
