SavingSaving is usually the first step in any future plans you have in life. You save for a car, college, a house, kids, etc. It is the most basic essential tool we need throughout life. Everyone saves; even millionaires need to save their money. 

 

 
CheckingChecking accounts are where all the fun happens. This is where you get to spend your money, and pay your bills. There is usually never a steady amount of money because cash is going in and coming out frequently.

 


BudgetingBudgeting is a simple process of arithmetic and knowing your limits. It is not hard, and can help you stay smart with your money. If you are living paycheck-to-paycheck and have an empty savings account, budgeting can help you get back on track with your life.

 



CreditHaving a good credit score can determine how easy life can be for you in the future. It determines what your rate will be on a loan, whether you have to pay a down payment on something, whether you get a job, and even if someone will marry you. 

 

 

Fhu-buying-car

Buying a car is fun, but very expensive. And if you don’t know what you are doing, it can also be very confusing. Buying a vehicle is a huge investment, so a lot of time and research needs to be put in to finding you your perfect car. 

 

 

College

College is one of the biggest, life changing, and toughest chapters in our life. Many people talk about how great college is; being out on your own for the first time, living with your friends, and going to parties. What they don’t tell you, is how extremely difficult college really is. For four or more years your life is consumed with tests, homework and the looming fear of pop quizzes. Going to college is no joke, and only the serious, most dedicated students make it through.

 

 

Fhu-living

Living with your parents can be super annoying. Yes, free dinner and a place to sleep at night is nice, but it is time to leave the nest and spread your wings and fly on your own! So what do you need to do? Moving out is a very long, and very expensive process that takes time. Don’t rush in to it, and remember to always keep your options open.
