I ran across an article on UKFCU’s Advice and Education page which talked about February being a good month to reset your spending cycle. Did you know that your spending has different patterns? They may be summarized as:
- Living paycheck to paycheck
- Using debt to support your lifestyle
- Saving what’s left over at month’s end (there never is any)
- Pay yourself first
Some people never get beyond the first one or two cycles, but the latter one works best. More information can be found here.
