How to Save $5,050 in 100 Days

I don’t know about you, but when someone says I can save $5,050 in 100 days, I get in the savings mood. For those who find saving money not only a struggle but a dreadful task, the 100 Envelope Saving Challenge could be your quirky, yet practical, solution. Not only will you 100% save $5,050 in 100 days if you stick to the rules of the challenge, but it is (dare I say) a fun saving activity.
What is the 100 Envelope Saving Challenge?
The name suggests that envelopes are necessary for this challenge. Between you and me, that’s a lot of unnecessary work, and no one wants to go out and buy 100 envelopes if they don’t have them already. As a result, I’m altering the setup so that all you need is paper, a pencil, and a small container (or you can go fully digital and I’ll tell you how further down). However, if envelopes add to the appeal, feel free to fulfill those envelope...

Credit Cards: Insider Info You Need To Know

The first inklings of credit cards appeared as clay tablets in ancient Mesopotamia, at least 5,000 years ago, recording transactions between merchants for payment of goods or services that would come later. Today, we are all too familiar with those thin, rectangular pieces of plastic, so much so that 77 percent of U.S. adults have at least one credit card.
What is a Credit Card?
But how do they work? How do I use one wisely? What credit card options are there?

To start, think of a credit card as a renewable short-term loan you must repay the lender by a set date. You’re borrowing money, recording that process and transaction on your card, and repaying later. Credit cards are incredibly...

Saving for Retirement: Traditional IRA vs ROTH IRA

56% of Americans feel behind on saving for retirement, yet 25% of workers haven’t made retirement contributions in at least a year, according to Bankrate. For some, retirement is right around the corner, so much so that it can feel more scary than exciting. For others, it’s tempting to sweep saving plans under the rug since that time seems so far away. Regardless of your position, today’s actions build the savings for your future, and it’s never too late to start. But where DO you start?
Let me introduce you to my little friend: an Individual Retirement Account (IRA)

What is an IRA?
Specifically designed for retirement savings, IRAs are individual retirement accounts with tax advantages. Two of the most popular retirement accounts are traditional IRAs and Roth IRAs, and you can invest in both simultaneously. Today, we’ll discuss the pros and cons of each and how they can...

Personal Loans: A Quick and Easy Guide

You have needs, wants, desires, and dreams. Much to our chagrin, achieving these aspirations requires money. But what if you don’t have the cash you need? A personal loan is a viable option when you need financial support to accomplish your goals.

What is a personal loan?

Personal loans are sums of money individuals can access and use for various expenses. When using a personal loan, you must repay the borrowed money overtime and in full by a fixed end date. These loans have fixed interest rates and must receive equal monthly payments over the agreed-upon repayment term, usually ranging between one and seven years.

The sum of money you receive from a personal loan depends on factors like your credit score, income, debt-to-income (DTI) ratio, and lender. Individuals can apply for the amount they need, but the lender’s policy will limit the...
