Happy Monday! I love a simple wrap dress. I couldn't resist wearing my platforms because they pair well with many of my looks this spring.
In the spirit of keeping it simple I wanted to share my most simple rule in terms of finances which is "a percentage of your money earned belongs to you" This simple rule has taught me to place value on my money and how I spend it. When kids are taught this rule early in life it can help them learn how to manage money more wisely as well. When I look at statistics and I see that over 50 % of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck this is an indicator that some people may feel that money belongs to everyone else but not them.
A simple solution is to
1. Create a spending plan just to make sure your desires are not causing you to overspend
2. The first item on your spending plan should be the amount you pay yourself every time you earn income. 10% is a great number to start with. This amount should be set up to automatically draft into your pay yourself account.
3. Keep doing it! Your journey will not be easy but your reason for doing it should always be stronger.
Stay encouraged this week! Thank you so much for your support!
