It's important to keep your impulses in check in April. Take this opportunity to plan for the future. Create a budget, set deadlines, and establish healthy routines. Although you prefer operating on instinct, this approach could backfire in the weeks ahead. Take a week before making big purchases. Whether you need a car, computer, or kitchen appliance, it would be best to do plenty of research before buying it. Find a model that serves your needs. When in doubt, choose quality over brand-name recognition. This will leave more money for a vacation or luxury item. Slow but steady wins the race.
