Do you tell yourself that you don’t have enough time to worry about your finances?
You make enough money to pay your bills, you don’t have debt collectors calling you up, and the future is a long ways off.
Your finances may not be your current priority, or possibly you don’t want to deal with money/math/budgets, but these are excuses.
You need to “know” your money. You need to take control of your money. You need to make a plan.
The benefit will be impactful and will pay dividends for years to come.
You’ll be able to plan ahead. Put your money to work for you.
So find the time.
You don’t need to miss your favorite t.v. show, but maybe add your accounts to Mint.com during the commercials.
You don’t have to give up Facebook, but take a few minutes to see if your prior month’s spending went where you thought it did.
And you don’t have to give up meeting your friends for drinks, but make sure your 401(k) contribution was matched by your employer.
You don’t have to stress over your finances…just care about them.
Do you use the excuse of not enough time to avoid your finances?
