Thanks For Checking Out Our Money Tips!
Money Tip #1:
Build Successful Habits with a Budget
The first step is to build a simple budget and keep track of where your money is going. If you know where your money is going it will be easier to make changes if you need to. Think of it as a road map that tells you exactly where you are in terms of monthly income and expenses, what money is available to put away each month, and if you’re on track. Get started with our budgeting worksheet.
Money Tip # 2:
Save Regularly for Post-Grad Habits
Opt to have some of your paycheck directly deposited into your savings account or set up an automatic transfer from your checking to your savings. Choose an amount that is reasonable and realistic. You can measure your progress each week and adjust your goals as needed. By saving automatically, you will be able to achieve your savings goals in no time!
Money Tip # 3:
Get a Handle on Your Debt
Debt is one of the greatest barriers to saving adequately. The larger your balance, the more you pay in interest which means less is applied to principal, taking it longer to pay off . You will save the most money by starting to pay as much extra as you can on your highest-interest debt first. Once that card is paid off, you can move on to your second-highest interest debt.
