(NEW YORK) -- Another report shows more consumers are feeling better about their finances as many have reset their spending and savings plans.
Keith Brannan, of the firm Country Financial, says its latest survey shows a gain. "We do it every other month and this month we actually reached the highest point that we'd been at since 2007."
This comes after the big holiday shopping and spending season in which Brannan explains, "We normally see a little bit of a January hangover and it doesn't look like we have that so much this year."
"About half of the folks were able to set aside money this year and that's up three points even since December," Brannan says. Having a spending plan with clear goals can help you feel better about your financial future adds Brannan.
