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.
- Understand your expenses and create a budget.
- Learn to live within your means.
- 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!
- 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.
- Learn about loans.
- When possible, “try” before you buy. Avoid making impulse shopping decisions and be realistic with your purchases.
- Money management tools: Mint, Adaptu, BudgetSimple, BillShare
- Be a Smart Shopper
