Money talk. Money matters. Well, most of us has financial goal whether it's a short-term, medium-term or long-term goal in life. Some spend more than they could earn, while some earn more than they could spend. While some are just making it break-even. How about you, is your standard of living better off today compared to last year? Are you making any headway in your savings? Are you just trying to make both ends meet? What's the state of your financial health?

My standard of living is the same. But I'm better off this year than last because the market is up, and because I always make more than I spend. That's just common sense to me.

@TheHorse Yes you are right it's a simple common sense. But there are lots of people out ther finding it hard to put this common sense into practice in their day to day life. See you later.

That's good to hear. I'm also in the process of trimming down my debt and hopefully do some savings as well.

My financial status right now is almost the same compared to last year. But now, I have stronger desire to make my financial status better. I'm currently a freelance online worker. And I wanted to keep it this way. Perhaps my personality doesn't fit with a regular job. All I have to do is to make my time more productive.

I think it is. But I still continued to make it better for next year. There is no need to stop.
