I like the financial diet. The tips are small but they feel doable. The IG feed is a nice weekly reminder to stay strong on saving

Another tip. I use Quicken (for Mac). There are other programs or sites like Mint. All my accounts are linked. I buy everything with credit cards—I mean everything—so that it shows up on Quicken registers and I can categorize. That way it’s extremely easy to see where all my money’s going, how much I spend each month, year, etc. As far as using the credit cards mine are automatically paid in full each month. That’s the only way I’d recommend this tactic. This has helped me plan for retirement. I know exactly what life in NYC costs me.

Thank you for this!

It’s not deep insight but Mrs Dow Jones is fun af and I really appreciate the constant charming reminders about different elements of personal finance. Keeps it top of mind enough that I’ve done a lot more deep homework. Good insta follow I Will Teach You To Be Rich is also a really accessible & actionable basic primer
