If you want to create and follow a healthy financial plan, then saving is going to be the most crucial part of it.

While we’re on the topic of setting and following a healthy financial plan through tracking and budgeting your money, what about those of us who need to focus more on the managing part? Sure, anyone can create a budget or identify their income sources and streams, but what about actually managing your finances on a daily, monthly, or annual basis? The Fioneers discuss how they manage their money via the “anti-budget” method in this blog post. So if you’re struggling to manage your finances responsibly, you’ll find this article a huge help.
You’re probably thinking, “I’ll just live cheaply and I should be fine”. Wrong. Living frugally may not be the end-all-be-all solution for you and your family when it comes to launching a healthy financial plan. Fire Year Fire Escape talks about how the majority of people are actually practicing frugal living incorrectly in this blog post. So if you want to know when you can STOP living frugally and how to stay responsible financially after you stop living frugally, then this article is for you.
That’s it for this week! I hope Journal Club 5/28/21 was helpful to you.
