26. Seek Ways To Spend Less
Even if you are already spending less than you bring in each month, if you want to take steps towards escaping the middle class, you need to look for ways to spend less. Again, this is not about imposing austerity measures on yourself. It is about prioritizing the things that are most important in life.
Look at the different classifications of expenditures you have set up, and determine which categories are not as important. Those are the ones that you can probably start with shaving down your spending. After all, if you can get by without television, you can probably ditch the expensive satellite subscription, especially if you also subscribe to Netflix and Amazon Prime.
