Rule #5: Rely on the Happiness- and Success- Boosting Habit That Also Builds Wealth
I am a big believer that orderliness begets wealth. A pile of bills and statements—whether paid or not—is a sign that someone is clueless about what's coming in and going out.

Being organized also makes it infinitely easier to give yourself the financial health screenings I advocate month in and month out.
