Financial Wellness

Financial Wellness is your relationship with money and skills in managing resources, as well as your ability to make good consumer choices and seek out appropriate financial opportunities.


  1. Understand your expenses and create a budget.
  2. Learn to live within your means.
  3. Keep up on your credit. It may not seem like a big deal now, but having a good credit score will help when you go to buy a car or a house later in life!
  4. It’s never too soon to start saving. Even just putting away a few dollars with each paycheck can add up and provide an emergency savings cushion.
  5. Learn about loans.
  6. When possible, “try” before you buy. Avoid making impulse shopping decisions and be realistic with your purchases.
