We all know we should be saving and budgeting our money. It's easier for some than others. I found this interesting blog from credit.com that puts Americans into 4 groups when it comes to how we deal with money. I think I fall in "The Dreamer" category- what about you?
1. The Perfectionists — (Comprehensive Planners) 19% of Americans
-These consumers know the exact route to their financial goals.
2. The Dreamers — (Basic Planners) 38% of Americans
-They have some goals worked out and have an idea of what they’d like to achieve — they just haven’t yet worked out all the details.
3. The Procrastinators — (Limited Planners) 33% of Americans
-These consumers put forth the bare minimum and might get to the rest of planning later.
4. The Wanderers — (Non-Planners) 10% of Americans
-In this group, consumers just kind of float from bill to bill without any strategic approach to money management.
