Lately I’ve been reading and doing a lot of stuff regarding my finances. As I’m getting back on track with my health I also want to make sure my financial situation is a healthy one.
One thing I’ve read about and actually done is making saving automatic. Once I get paid it goes into my ING Direct account and then I split that off into sub accounts like my travel fund and house down payment fund. I read about this little tactic on I Will Teach You To Be Reach.
I have also been thinking about looking at low interest credit cards and maybe transferring my credit card balances. I absolutely hate my credit card debt!
I’ve also been reading a TON at personal finance (only) blogs Get Rich Slowly, Christian Personal Finance, Free Money Finance, The Simple Dollar, and Zen Habits (productivity and simplicity in life = better finances I think). I’m learning a lot that will help me simplify and save money, which is key in this economy.
