If you don’t have a budget, this is the time to make one. And if you do, it’s time to make a new one because you can stop those auto-contributions to your travel fund. To discuss this and her new book The 100 Day Financial Goal Journal I’ve got Alyssa Davies on the show, blogger and YouTuber at Mixed Up Money.
Aside from talking about the importance of having a budget and tracking your spending, we also discuss how to set and plan for different types of financial goals like homeownership and starting a family, and Alyssa shares some tips and techniques to help you get started.
