In a world where the amount of time it takes you to work for your salary doesn't equate to the amount of time you take to spend it, it's safe to say, we need to be more savvy when it comes to our spending habits...

South Africans have always been accused of not being particularly good with their spending habits. 

Well, let's just say that we form part of a culture that likes nice things...

But that is no excuse to continue with our negative ways of managing our money. 

This is why when we saw this page called Financially Fabulous, we had to share some interesting but shocking information. 

According to Yolanda Rose Haripersad (MBA), a wealth advisor from Financially Fabulous, more than half of middle income earners in South Africa spend their salary in less than five days of receiving it.
