MADISON (WKOW)--Shelia and Dan Robertson have a pretty modest lifestyle and they work hard. But too much month at the end of the money made them realize they needed to get some answers and make some changes.
"Their biggest challenge was making it a focus. setting aside time once a day, at least, and seeing where they're at. who spent what, how much and making sure they were on top of everything," says Jenna Gordon, Robertson's Project Money coach.
After having them track their spending for a month, she says they found ways to save about $500 a month.
