Slow down! You may be moving on up in status, but remember to make that move wisely. Don't spend all your ducks on fashion without saving an Emergency Fund. Yes, we want a new look, but our finances may not fit the budget for a new wardrobe at the time. When having financial difficulties, a person can get sad and mope around feeling depressed and lonely leading to a desire to shop more. According to CNBC,
