Money Basics

  • How can I manage my money so I can take control of my finances?

    The key to successfully managing your money is having a clear idea of what you are making (your income) and what you are spending (your expenses). One way to get started is to take out a single blank sheet of paper. Draw a line down the middle. On the left side list your income sources. On the right side, list your expenses. Total up the two columns, and you will get an initial snapshot of how you are doing financially. The goal is to make sure that your expenses do not exceed your income sources.
