Many say that Americans are only a couple of hundred dollars away from dodging foreclosure. An average American spends $200 to $400 a month for pointless buys and expenses. These hundred of dollars are usually used for needless luxuries like cigarettes, beer, coffee, cable, etc.

Avoiding coffee shop visits, passing on a Friday night out or being a cold turkey can do a lot in stopping foreclosure. It may be hard to give up some of these indulgences, but if it can actually save your home, wouldn’t you do it?

Stop and assess. Reevaluate your needs and wants, priorities and luxuries. Cutting down on the cravings and extravagance can mean a lot more money saved for stopping foreclosure.

But first, know how much you need to stop the pending foreclosure. Evaluate how much you owe to the lender. Then start on reducing excessive spending like sacrificing your cable, shopping sprees and eating out. Instead enjoy your local channels, buy what you only need and cook for your family.

Just imagine: simple budgeting can do as much as a stop foreclosure assistance offered by companies.

But if you are not sure if you can handle budgeting by yourself, there are free services that may aid you in starting a good monthly budget. Encouragement from family and friends may be of great help too. They can get you motivated in doing little sacrifices to stop foreclosure.

Then after establishing a stop foreclosure budget, call your lender and try to settle on a payment agreement. Having the budget will hopefully provide enough funding that can help you stop foreclosure.

It may be difficult when you start, giving up pleasures may be hard. But think about stopping your foreclosure and you can get through it.
