Posted this earlier today and shared the wrong ig post from CNBC. My apologies, didn't catch onto this sooner.
I've been doing much better saving money over the last four years and hopefully I'll look much better over the next four years. At least you couldn't coun't me in the 35% with less than $1k in savings or the 34% who has ZERO.
It takes some discipline to put some money away at least every pay period. Then scrimp and scrape as you spend money. Though as far as spending I'm still learning. A never ending process.
Funny thing, I used to complain about how my mother didn't want to spend money on things. Now I've acquired some of those habits.
