We’ve Made A Budget Planner For The Lunar Year That Will Help You Manage Your Finances

1 min. read By eCompareMo on

Face the Year of the Fire Rooster well-equipped for changing tides—especially with seven long weekends and a couple of holidays coming up in 2017.

To help you make your income and expenses meet, and hopefully be able to set buckets of money aside, we’ve come up with a budget-friendly calendar that shows you which days of the year to scrimp. The darker the color, the more you should avoid unnecessary expenses. We’ve also marked paydays, potentially expensive holidays, and cash-burning long weekends.
