There is much that a person can be thankful when Thanksgiving comes around, but consider how thankful a person can be if they make smart financial choices that have a lasting impact – for example:
- Pay down high interest rate debt in a timely manner and avoid using your financial resources to cover accruing interest! It may also mean you can start saving for future financial purchases earlier.
- Do not carry a balance on credit cards from month to month. Stay debt free!
- Save money! This might not be realistic for everyone, but putting away a portion of a paycheque or any extra cash that might be received will help to set up that emergency account or allow you to save for a down payment or a large purchase.
- Avoiding impulsive purchases! Create a budget and thinking about that purchase before buying.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family from Hardie & Kelly!
