Unfortunately, if you're like almost everyone, that option is far beyond your control, and that means you'll have to find ways to cut spending and save money — and that's not painless.

Thinking of buying a new car? Or new appliances? Take a deep breath and consider waiting. Many people trade their car in as soon as they've paid it off and start shelling money out again.
