If you knew your money is being wasted would you not like to do something about it? And if this something can only be done by improving on your financial and money matter knowledge, would you not do it?
Try and consider
You need to think for a moment as to what you can possibly do with all the money you have lost. With your budget ready and the additional money pouring in your financial situation can improve quite drastically.
Where would you spend the money?
Think about all the ways you want to spend your money with. How much you are able to send on daily expenses such as ordering food, shopping and all. With this you would be able to quantify the amount with the budget. Now imagine you could save the same amount for the whole year. It could come as a great revelation to you and you will be amazed.
