Some tips for improving your finances are:
- using your bank's automatic payment service to pay your bills ( this way there are no overdue bills with late fees)
- if you can afford it find a financial planner to help you with budgeting and saving
- make a weekly appointment with yourself to balance your checkbook
- minimize the number of credit cards you own
- when you go shopping don't carry those credit cards this way you only buy what you have money for
- make a budget and stick with it
Yes, some of these tips may be difficult for you so invite a friend to keep you accountable. If you are not comfortable with this hire an ADHD coach.
