April is Financial Literacy Month

 

  1. Create a budget: Start by calculating your monthly income and expenses. Use this information to create a budget that works for you.
  2. Track your spending: Keep track of every dollar you spend to help you stick to your budget.
  3. Smart debt: If possible, avoid taking on debt. If you must take on debt, be aware of interest rates, and make sure payments fit into your budget.
  4. Save for emergencies: Set aside some money each month in case of emergencies.
  5. Save for the future: Start saving for retirement as early as possible to give your money time to grow.
  6. Live within your means: Try to live within your means by avoiding unnecessary expenses and making smart purchasing decisions.
  7. Plan for big expenses: Whether it's a down payment on a house or a new car, plan ahead for big expenses by saving up and making informed decisions about financing options.
  8. Be mindful of credit: Behaviors that lead to carrying monthly balances and spending more than you otherwise would with cash or a debit card can lead to more financial problems than if you avoided using credit altogether. 
  9. Educate yourself: Learn about personal finance and investing so you can make informed decisions about your money.
  10. Ask for help: Don't be afraid to ask for help from a financial advisor or the financial aid office at your school.
