Money Management

Skip straight to the archives.

Did you recently move out of your parents’ basement?

Congrats! You’re a full-fledged adult!

It’s time to let you in on a little secret: half the time, us full-fledged adults don’t have our crap together.

That includes money management. Whether you’re 21 or 64, odds are you could use some help tidying up your personal finances.

Managing Your Monthly Cash Flow

You get a paycheck, and you’ve got bills.

But you also have social outings, retirement to plan for and potentially children to feed.

How do you manage it all?

A budget.

Luckily for you, you’ve stumbled across the home of the Golden Rule of Budgeting. If you can follow this financial philosophy, the vast majority of your budgeting woes will fly out the window.

Money Management for the Future

Whilst managing your money, it’s easy to forget that someday you’ll be old. But if you’re lucky, you will be.

Start saving money for your retirement now. Get the proper insurance you need to take care of your family in case the unimaginable happens. Plan your finances not just around what you need today, but around what you will need tomorrow. Your future self will thank you.

If you already are old, first of all, congratulations. You’re one of the lucky ones that made it. If your money’s not in order, don’t distress. It won’t be as easy as if you had started when you were young, but money management for your own future is still possible.
