Whether it was an unexpected expense or an impulse purchase, chances are you've slacked off on your resolution to save more and spend less. That's OK.
This year is no exception, even though more than 4 in 10 Americans said losing debt is a top priority — even over shedding weight, according to a survey by CompareCards.com.
"Weight isn't necessarily something that impacts people in their everyday lives," said Matt Schulz, chief industry analyst at CompareCards. "Chances are you are more worried about paying bills."

"The beginning of the week is a great time to start again," said Wharton professor and behavioral psychologist Katherine Milkman. "The Monday effect is really robust."
So if you've fallen off the wagon, "look for another new date that's meaningful and use that as the jumping off point," she said. "That motivates us to achieve more."
