One of the biggest causes of stress in our lives is money. For those who are married, the single biggest reason for divorce is fights over money.
For all the wonderful things we can do with money, it also can cause us many problems.
According to CNN, 76% of Americans live paycheck to paycheck, meaning they have little or no savings to fall back on in case of an emergency, such as a job loss. (1)
Talk about a recipe for stress!
The single best thing we can do to avoid these situations is SPEND LESS than we make. By doing so, we are able to save for those times when emergencies arise.
And the only way to save for retirement, for college for our children, or for anything else, is to SPEND LESS than we make. It sounds simple, and it is. But 76% of Americans don’t.
Want to take some serious stress out of your life? Put yourself on a path to SPEND LESS than you make. Trust me, you’ll be glad you did.
