#FinancialFridays: Loud Budgeting

Some people on social media are talking more and more about decreasing their spending, a trend called “loud budgeting”. With costs so high, it is refreshing to hear people being transparent about how high costs are impacting them and what they are doing to try to live within their available income. Talking about finances is taboo, something most people are discouraged from doing. But talking honestly and openly about our finances and the realistic tips and tricks helps us be accountable and gives those in our lives permission to also share if they aren’t doing well. If you are thinking of practicing “loud budgeting” make sure you don’t share personal information that can be used for fraud purposes.
