With the tax season comes a reminder on just how much I need to take a good look at my finances and make some changes. One of the habit changes I am making is to start thinking about money. I am in my 20’s and while I could be in worse financial shape, I could be in much better shape too!
I believe that if you constantly expose yourself to information and educate yourself about a subject you will start making better decisions in that area – naturally.
So, I am applying this to money. I am reading at least 1 financial blog post per day. Often, this leads to reading 3 or 4 blog posts. I have been doing this for a few weeks now and it is not only becoming natural – I really look forward to it each morning.
Here’s how I started:
- I found out about http://www.rockstarfinance.com. This is an awesome website – each weekday “J.Money” combs the internet for the best blog posts on personal finance – so all the work is done for you. Just click, and read! On the weekend, I just use the archives and other links on the site to find articles and blogs to read.
- I set http://www.rockstarfinance.com as my homepage in my browser – every time I open up the internet to do anything it shows up! This reminds me (an interests me) to read even if I’m “not in the mood.”
What new habit will you start to increase your financial life?
