What's Your Problem?
So after finding out where your money goes, did you think about why it's going where it goes? I had a big problem with my finances, I had no idea what I was doing with my money. So I spent it on things I thought I wanted, and racked up debt, and did what it seemed everyone else was doing, and never had a second thought of where my money went. Of course, we all now we see that this was not a sustainable plan for the all too uncertain future. My problem was ignorance. Some people can't can't say no to their Spouse or Children. Others simply haven't developed the self-discipline to manage finances successfully. I had all of these problems too, but my ignorance was a far bigger problem. That's because it muddies the water, and you can't truly see what problems lie underneath. Dissolve the ignorance first, and the other problems will become much clearer.
