//How to Get Financially Fit

It’s time to get in shape!

Don’t worry, we’re not going to make you do squats and burpees. No, we’re talking about managing your money. Check out these three ways to trim down flabby spending and increase your saving power!

Flex your money muscles

Make a list of everything you absolutely HAVE TO include in your budget, and cut everything else. Be merciless!

Crunch the numbers

Be realistic about how much money you have now, how much you’re going to make from jobs or allowance, and how much you’re going to spend.

Get your goals!

Think about all the things you might want or need to buy this year. Going to college in the fall? Saving for prom or a spring formal? Make a list and figure out how much you need to afford everything on it.
