Online Calculators for Every Finance Question
It really doesn’t matter what year it is, what job you have, what vehicle you drive or house you live in. The world is every changing and even with all going on currently there is one thing that is a constant, and that is money.
Maybe the amount of money a person has isn’t a constant, but money in general always will be. It comes and it goes and while they might teach a person a bit about money in high school, or even in college, a person can still be overwhelmed.
There are many ways to learn how to manage ones finances, but one of the biggest helps I have found is using online tools like the ones found at Pigly.
Make a Budget
With the current world situation there are many people out of work, or on unemployment and living paycheck to paycheck just not sure of what might come of all this. The best thing one can do is set up a budget.
Budget Calculators are a great way to do just that. Figure out exactly what your income is, and your outgo and make yourself a plan. With the great budget calculators available it’s super easy to see where you need to be and how to get there.
Those two words are simple, but the actual act of saving money isn’t always simple. When one earns money, pays bills and then has money extra the first thing that comes to mind isn’t.. I need to save this. Am I right?
Knowing how to save money and what is best for your future plans is key. If you are unsure where to start, check out the 99 ways to save money post from AARP. Lots of great tips and you will for sure be able to do a few of them, or more.
One tip from me, if you work in a profession where you earn tips. At the end of my work shift, I would take and exchange all my money in for twenty dollar bills. If I had 5 twenty dollar bills and there was a hundred dollar bill I’d swap for that. Whatever ones, fives or tens I have go in one envelope, and the bigger bills in another. I just stick it away, like I never earned it. You’d be surprised how fast it adds up.
Getting a handle on your finances sounds easy, but when one starts trying to figure things out it can get overwhelming fast. There is a great article with 7 Best Personal Finance Tips for 2020 that can help you get a start on things.
Maybe it’s credit card debt, school loan debt, over due taxes, medical bills, etc. Let’s just call it everyone’s “American Dream” to be in debt. Well, not to be in debt, but everyone wants to own things and do things, and with all that can come debt we don’t want.
