Like most of you, I recently finished filing my taxes. Yay! But after about 20 calls to my mother I realized that, with six years of college education under my belt, I should know a lot more about this subject than I do. Until now, I hadn’t thought of making it a priority. So I set out on a mission to collect some go-to resources to teach myself more about finances and managing my money. If you’re looking to understand the basics too, check out some of these sites, books, and apps:
Mobile Banking (Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, etc)
This is by no means an exhaustive list, but it’s enough to get started. Don’t be turned away by the book titles – if you’re like me, you want to start with simple explanations and work your way up to more complex strategies. Of these, Business Insider, the Mint app, and the videos from Better Money Habits are my favorites. So browse a few sites, learn how the systems work, and you’ll be all set when next year’s tax season rolls around.
