How do you spend your money?

Maybe it’s as simple as seeing something you like, seeing money in your wallet and making the transaction.  Or maybe you put more thought into it.

Maybe it’s as simple as seeing something you like, seeing money in your wallet and making the transaction.  Or maybe you put more thought into it.  Either way, a spending plan is something you need to consider.  Why?  Because, if you haven’t used a spending plan, you will see how it can help you manage your finances and save you money.  If you already use a spending plan, you know the benefits, and you should review it for accuracy.  After all, a spending plan is essential for a solid foundation.

Want to know if you’re on your way to a secure financial future?  Answer the questions below.

  1. Do you track your monthly expenses?
  2. Do you know your net worth?
  3. Do you have at least 3-6 months’ of living expenses saved?

If you answered “yes” to the previous questions, you have a good start for a solid financial foundation.  If you answered “no” to any of the questions, you should consider meeting with a Money Coach who can help you make the most of your money.  Money Coaches are Certified Credit Counselors, and some have a CFP® certification, among other accreditations.  They can talk to you about virtually any financial topic so call 888-724-2326 today to make sure you’re on your way to a secure financial future.

Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc. (CFP Board) owns the certification mark CFP® in the United States, which it authorizes use of by individuals who successfully complete CFP Board’s initial and ongoing certification requirements.
