October is Financial Planning Month, and with the New Year right around the corner, now is a great time to make sure you are on track to meet your short- and long-term financial goals.
Here are three tips to keep your spending in check and finish the year out strong:
1. Don’t transfer money from your savings account to your checking account unless
it’s an emergency. If you find yourself doing this often, consider having a checking
and savings account at two different financial institutions. It takes longer for the transfer to
go through and the extra barrier can help you avoid unnecessary purchases.
