Great piece, Desiree. I always tell people not to focus on making more money. Rather, focus on saving what you have first. Good spending habits will always go further than promotions and salary raises.

And, especially with credit cards, as you mentioned, make sure you’re under control of the bad habits or else they will just get amplified as your wealth grows!
