7:04 am
latest on this story. good morning. >> hay, hoda, good morning to you. any moment now we expect british prime minister boris johnson to walk out of that famous door, 10 downing street, and announce he is stepping down. in the white house they will be watching and worrying that we are now seeing political instability here in the uk at such an unstable time for europe. but in the end after scandal after scandal, boris johnson's own party decided he does not have the integrity to be prime minister. this morning, boris johnson, a key ally for president biden over ukraine forced from office, despite his defiance even yesterday. >> the job of a prime minister in difficult circumstances when he's handed a mandate is to keep going. and that's what i'm going to do. >> reporter: the tipping point a tsunami of resignations from his

convenience spend. if you can get rid of that, that's going to help you once we do that, make a budget there's great apps, minted, you need a budget, pocket guide. all help you create the online budget but before you can create the online budget, i want you to know where your money goes >> one thing i love about mint, it connects and communicate with your bank or banks. >> yes. >> so it makes it easier i assume all of them probably do. >> yes, they do. >> if you're struggling with these everyday items you can't avoid buying a lot of stuff, but where should you start. >> this should be easy to stay, get cash back. let's tri to do it think about your biggest fix cost, rent, utility, credit card, pick up the card, try to negotiate, they might be willing
8:40 am
to cut you a deal. if you can't get lower deals you can get slower payments because the more you can have money in your pocket right now while prices are going up, that's good for you. plan ahead do not go to the grocery store without a list do not go to the grocery store hungry that's when you're walking through the aisles not looking at the price of things -- >> impulse buying. >> yes think ahead. go to apps where you're going to get cash back. >> i'm a coupon queen. find them before you're shopping i know you talked about it, use the gas apps, don't drive around look for the cheapest gas, use the apps, they're your friend. a lot of folks turning to credit cards right now to manage the cash flow. what are things people should keep in mind if they turned to plastic to help. >> first things first. if you're using one particular card a lot down load your -- go to the website and see. there might be an opt in with
8:41 am
some big retailer if you opt in, you might get 10, 15% off if you're using that retailer however for people who want to play that game it's all about loyalty points i get cash back, rewards. unless you can pay those bills on time in full every month don't think i'm going to get these points, that will help me, that's a bad move. however if you have credit card debt and you're figuring out how i'm going to pay it down zero balance transfers make sense, citi, bank of america, discovery, you can get the zero balance, but you're not going to get zero interest forever it's usually a set period of time you don't want to go past that and you're paying up. >> and coupons. >> coupons, coupons. i insist you think about coupons. they make such a difference. you have to plan ahead and use them. >> for people who have disposable income right now, when it comes to saving, investing, what should they be doing.
8:42 am
>> you're saying everything costs more, how am i going to save >> pay yourself first. before you pay rent, credit card how is craig going to save money? you should always try to have 3 to 6 months of emergency savings so the way to do it, set it aside. say it's $100 a paycheck immediately do an account transfer to a separate bank account. you're going to be building up that money every month rather than waiting to see what's left in the wallet because chances are there won't be much. >> comes out of your check. >> absolutely. you want to avoid paying interest, pay on time if you can. and read the fine print on the credit card statements if you're saying i have so much. before you go into saying -- before you start paying debt i have to figure out how i'm going to pay this down before you go into saying -- before you start paying it down, start to figure out what are the easiest, fastest ways i can do it go to your credit card you know you can cover first because over time, these things are going to build up and they get crazy. >> stephanie rhule you have
8:43 am
great tips for us. thank you so much. >> cash diet that's what i want you to do. >> what's that >> go out using cash, not the credit cards you take a credit card to a bar, you'll spend a lot more than you will if you have cash. >> cash diet you heard it for more money tips from stephanie rhule today.com/onthemoney. >> what you got, hoda? >> i have dave out here breaking down the summer blockbuster from superheroes to thrillers to books turned into films. he's the one this is the one to watch but first this is "today" on nbc wanna help kids get their homework done? well, an internet connection's a good start. but kids also need computers.
