On Tiller’s blog, we wrote a post about “5 Factors That Make People Feel Happy About Their Money.”
These include the availability of money in ones savings account, tracking money, talking about money with friends, setting clear financial goals, and certain kinds of spending.
Personally, I feel better when I know how much available spending money I have left every month. Even when it’s less than I wish I had, I always feel better knowing exactly what’s left. (And I recently started using the Spending Money report in my Tiller Google Sheet.)
