Sometimes, people cleanse their body by going on a strict diet, but you can also detoxify your budget.
Start by creating a basic budget with three columns for what are necessities, necessities with wiggle room and lastly what's discretionary. Then, organize each item of your budget into one of the three columns.
For example, your rent, mortgage and car payments would go under necessities. Utilities and food would go under column two. You need them to live, but you can try to reduce those expenses.
Column three, or discretionary expenses, might include entertainment, travel and hairstyling.
Use your bank's bill-pay service and those by utility and cellphone companies to make automatic recurring payments.
For savings, use your bank's fund transfer service to set up automatic recurring payments to a savings account. For other expenses like gas and groceries, leave money in a checking account and access it via debit card so you don't have to carry cash in your wallet.
