The 70:30 money management rule basically said that for all money flowing into your household 70% would be allocated to your lifestyle/ living expenses, with the remaining 30% divided up into your 10% pay yourself first account and the balance of 20% put into debt reduction.

What happens when you have completed that?

With 70% to live on and 10% for paying yourself (which we want you to keep building). Then it’s time to allocate something towards things that inspire you, like Dreams and Special Projects you wish to plan for.

As such, allocate that 20% evenly across dreams and special projects.

For those who want to allocate something towards dreams and special projects regardless of meeting your debt reduction goals, let’s meet 50/50 and allocate at least 10% towards debt detonation and 10% towards your dreams and special projects.

We work together and ultimately will be working for YOU on your ultimate goal plan.
