It’s never too early or too late to learn about saving and improving your financial outlook. Developing a budget and building financial knowledge is the foundation for a brighter future. Financial literacy is having the ability to understand and make use of a variety of financial skills: banking, budgeting, handling debt and credit, and investing.
Two tips to keep in mind:
Budgeting doesn’t mean you can never spend money. It means that you’re making a plan for how you’re spending before the month begins. It’s really about being intentional with where your money goes.
Consider having a set amount automatically transferred from your checking to your savings account each month. You’ll be surprised how quickly your savings balance grows.
