Lifestyle Creep? Is that when something creepy keeps popping up in your life? No! Is it when you think your life has turned into a horror story? No!
Lifestyle Creep is when you are receiving pay increases, promotions, and/or bonuses that provide you and your family with more household income, and instead of saving those additional dollars, you spend it on “stuff” to upgrade your lifestyle. The “creep” is that this condition comes on slowly, often unintentionally, and sometimes you don’t even realize it.
