How This Book Came About
Two friends discover that controlling your budget is not unlike controlling your diet.
Lifelong friends Dan and Angelo were discussing the merits and tactics of intermittent fasting. It was a system they were both using to control their diet, enhance their mental clarity, and improve their health. Angelo suggested that the mindfulness gained from fasting had positive practical implications on many aspects of his own life and wondered if it would apply toward Dan’s profession.
Could the benefits of intermittent fasting apply to personal finance? The conversation quickly jumped from restricting eating to restricting spending. This marked the beginning of what has now become intermittent spending and The Spending Window™. After years of experimenting with and observing different intermittent spending tactics, Dan and Angelo finally put their strategy on paper in hopes those people around the world will become more mindful of their spending behavior.
