Preparing A Savings Plan

(Money Manager) - Preparing a savings plan is much like planning a trip. You are at point “A” and you want to get to point “B”. Maybe you'll wish to visit points “C” and “D” also. Before you set out, you select a route or routes that will get you there either most quickly, usually sacrificing comfort for speed, or the best way for your style of travel. A savings plan is very similar. You can devise a plan that will get you there the most quickly and usually with the greatest sacrifice, or you can prepare a savings plan that will eventually get to the same point but allow you to give up less.

Optimizing Insurance Expenses

(Money Manager) - Life insurance is something a parent will tell you is a must. Try paying a doctor visit, not to mention an emergency-room visit, without health insurance. The law requires auto insurance, which is a good thing given the number of accidents per year. Insurance is a staple, but how much we pay for it is another question.

Identifying Obstacles to Financial Freedom

(Money Manager) - What is it that keeps us all from building or optimizing wealth? The answer is 'debt' and Merriam Webster defines it as "the common-law action for the recovery of money held to be due." To most of us, it means "paying bills over time." Imagine a life with no mortgage, car payments, credit card bills, or other loan payments. What portion of your income would you need to make ends meet without those obligations? How dependant would you be on your job? How much could you invest towards retirement?

How To Achieve The No Stress Move

(Money Manager) - Moving into a new home can be one of the most stressful situations that a person can endure, so it is vital that you find ways to make the transition as easy as possible. There are two distinct types of stress that one faces when changing homes. First, there is the financial aspect of the move. Finding the right home at the right price, negotiating the purchase with a seller, filling out the lengthy paperwork involved, and handling the escrow can all take its toll. Then there is the emotional aspect of the move, and this is often where the greatest amount of stress is felt. A competent and professional real estate agent can make the financial steps of the process easy, but if your emotional needs are unfulfilled, you may find yourself tired and frustrated and not acting in your own best interest.

(Money Manager) - Anyone who has ever had a bank account, mortgage, credit card, car loan, or account with a retail store will invariably have a credit rating. Most information in your credit rating comes from companies you have credit with, as well as from certain public records such as tax liens, bankruptcies, judgments and lawsuits.

Financial Life When Disaster Strikes

(Money Manager) - Growing up in a rural community during the 1980's, "disaster" was a word we rarely heard, and when we did it typically came out of history classes. Sure, there were tornadoes in other states and a few hurricanes would hit the south east each season, but my generation lived relatively worry free early on.
