You must replace the habit of spending with the habit of saving. Instead of going to the store every day, go to the bank everyday, and deposit money into your saving account. Instead of looking at what clothes you would like to buy, look for investments to slowly grow your money over time. These things sound simple but they are harder than you think. To come out of poverty is a special thing, but there are many barriers. Remaining out of poverty provides its own set of challenges including knowing what to buy and what not to buy.
