Is Lifestyle Creep Inevitable? #374
Most everyone out there has heard of lifestyle creep, also known as lifestyle inflation. We define this phenomenon as the unconscious upgrading of our lifestyle and standard of living which ends up costing us more and more money. And aside from the ability of lifestyle creep to sneak up on us, one of the other dangers is that it is often difficult to turn back the clock and downgrade our standard of living! So we’re asking the question today- is lifestyle creep inevitable? In this episode we discuss some widespread examples of lifestyle creep in our society, why it happens, and how we can thwart lifestyle creep from derailing our personal finances.
