Here’s how to protect your finances to have the money you need.

  • Save. Spend less than you earn and put the extra away.
  • Budget. Make a budget to have a framework for what you spend.
  • Track your spending. Every month, look at what you spend and adjust your budget if necessary.
  • Don’t spend impulsively. Only indulge in what’s important.
  • Don’t procrastinate. Pay your bills on time so debt doesn’t grow.
  • Invest. Put some money into long-term investments for college education and retirement.
  • Ditch costly bad habits. These just cheat you out of things you could enjoy in the future. What makes you happy shouldn’t wreck your finances.
  • Monitor debts. Know what you owe and pay off high interest debt, such as credit card balances.
  • Plan. The way to afford the house, car or vacation of your dreams is to plan for them, setting down dates and goals for the money you’ll need.
  • Stay healthy. Illness can be costly, but much of your well-being is in your control—protect your health with a healthy lifestyle.
