In my mid-20’s I have a vivid memory of the jar of coins my husband and I kept on the mantel. It was our weekly collection of loose change that we’d pour out on our tiny second-hand coffee table on Friday afternoon to see if we had enough extra cash for Friday night pizza. We were young, in love, and broke as a joke! Looking back, we could say, “Oh we were just starting out.” But the truth is, we were clueless about managing our money!
If this sounds familiar, no matter your age or stage, it’s never too early (or too late) to get a handle on your finances. Learning the ins-and-out of budgeting, loans, credit scores, and how to plan for your financial future is vital to success in work and life.
Money Essentials can help you make your money work for you, not the other way around. By making some simple changes and small sacrifices, your spare change jar could become your foundation for future wealth and security. Check it out!
