financial literacy month

Many of my clients struggle with excess shopping. They might shop as a hobby or because they don’t realize they already have the thing they’re looking for. Either way, they end up with less money and more things they don’t use, causing physical and mental clutter.

March is Financial Literacy Month, making it a good time to take a look at what you’re spending.

One of my favorite columnists, Michelle Singletary, writes about financial issues for The Washington Post.

Her article last week reminded readers that spending may be fun in the moment, but it’s important to save for the long term. She makes a great analogy about savings being like winter clothes – you need them to protect yourself.

Do you have trouble saving money? What goal would you like to save up for?
