As someone who espouses (fancy word, huh?) the benefits of planning your monthly spending before it begins, one of my favorite things is when your expenses don’t go up, but you get an unexpected bump in income. For me, I used to just blow through my extra cash, like I did when I received my inheritance annuity, combined with an injury settlement to end up burning $100k in under 3 years! YIKES!
But today, I’m all about allocating any extra funds toward my goals, whether that be debt payoff, retirement funding, bolstering my savings account, or a ri-donk-ulously awesome vacation! And I would encourage you to do the same. Blowing your extra income is so 5 years ago! This year, take all of your extra dollars and cents and achieve your awesome 2013 goals much earlier. “How?”. I’m glad you asked!
