Tired of being broke: how to have more money without making more

Is it just me, or is anyone else tired of being broke? 

Paydays are just a myth, because after I take care of bills, it is like it NEVER happened....

 

When my paycheck was chump change (more like minimum wage); my first thought was that I needed more money in order to have more.  But then I started a position that doubled my previous salary, in addition to working a part time job,and my pockets still carried lint in them.

In January I added financial books to my reading routine.  I just knew that by adding this it would give me a blueprint on how to start making it rain.
