Money – Balancing Spending Now and Saving for the Future

I’m very excited to have my first piece run for Money Magazine’s new website, about balancing spending now and saving for the future.  This is a fundamental struggle that I deal with in my own life, and the large majority of my clients have questions on this topic as well.

While I can’t repost the full article here, I will say the top advice I seem to give to clients is about having a clear vision, and using that to help filter your spending.  The more I understood about what was really important to me, the easier it became to change my behavior and to make the tough financial choices I needed to make every week.

I think there’s a lot of other good advice in the piece, so please head over to Money to read the full article!
