BLOG: How Much Money is Enough

There’s no hard-and-fast number that’s “enough” for everyone. The key is to figure out what “enough” is for you and your family. Want to get a ballpark number? Here’s a simple formula:

Monthly expenses + Monthly discretionary spending + Amount you want to save each month = Your “enough” number

If that number doesn’t align with your income, you can cut back on your spending and/or look for ways to boost your income.

Need more insight into calculating your “enough” and finding ways to make it a reality? Check out this blog post.

Our latest blog post is all about multigenerational housing. We cover its rise in popularity and offer practical tips to make it a great situation for everyone.

Does the mere thought of managing your finances exhaust you? You’re not the only one! In fact, many people end up burning out on personal finance because they get overwhelmed by all the things they are “supposed” to track.

BLOG: What is Your Money Personality?

Chances are you’ve taken at least one personality test. You might know your Myers-Briggs type or your Enneagram number, but do you know your money personality: Emotional Spender, Anxious Saver, Oblivious Avoider, or Conscious Investor?

Each personality type has pros and cons. If you know your financial weaknesses, you can address them and learn how to manage your money better. And if you manage your money together with a spouse or partner, knowing each other’s money personalities can help you communicate effectively and avoid fighting about money.
