Broke Ass Financial Coaching: Your Financial Priorities

What do you value? What are your priorities? It is impossible to look at spending and savings to see if it is aligned with your priorities if you don’t know what your priorities are. In addition, if I told you how to spend and save your money based on my priorities or Joe Bob’s, then you may do it for a short time but in the long run it isn’t sustainable.

Against this lush, green backdrop, the food situation was unforgivable.  Health food stores were few and far-between and restaurants were
