The summer is drawing to an end and it’s time to start thinking about going back to school, or getting your first job. You had the summer to live it up. But now, regardless of what year you are returning to, or whether you’ve finally graduated and aren’t returning to school for the first time in your life, it’s also time to start crunching down on money management.
For those young adults who are just getting their feet wet and are eager to jump in and start life, it’s important not to forget about the basics of money management. One of the basics includes disaster planning.
Disaster planning is just what it sounds like: planning for emergencies in life such as vehicle repairs, home repairs, medical expenses, such as the sudden death or illness of a family member or loved one, and even job loss. No one wants to think of these things, of course, but it might help to alleviate the blow only slightly if you’ve properly planned financially for disasters such as these.
While young adults are excited, eager, and enthusiastic, it might be difficult to think about the long term in a negative light. However, life can catch us when we least expect it or when we aren’t paying attention. Saving for that “rainy day” might make all the difference in making or breaking you.
So before you freak out too much, there are some money management basics to apply to your every day life to ensure that you don’t spend more than what you make in order to plan for the future. These basics aren’t much of a surprise, but are incredibly important for any individual to apply. They include:
- Saving as much cash as possible (even if it is only $20 a week!)
- Investing in a company-sponsored 401K, if this is an option.
- Setting a budget and sticking to it.
- Avoid relying on credit cards.
- Watch for interest rates on credit cards.
- Live within your means!
