Former CNBC host and personal finance maven Suze Orman is known for doling out blunt financial advice. Stop wasting your money on things that make your life easier, for example, she says, and put more of your hard-earned dollars away for emergencies.
Unfortunately, saving money is easier said than done. Just because you know you should cut back on takeout and Ubers doesn't mean you will.
The key, says Orman, boils down to one mental shift: You have to find the same kind of pleasure you get from spending when you save.
Saving money should never feel like "a downer," she tells CNBC Make It. Rather, it should be satisfying. You should enjoy it.
