When you just can’t seem to make ends meet and you’re trying to claw your way out of debt, it can be very hard to figure out where to begin.
You can figure that out with MyMoneyCheckup. MyMoneyCheckup is a free online financial assessment tool that can help you figure out how to get your finances on the right track.
To use the MyMoneyCheckup up tool, just sign up for a free account and answer the questions. When you’re done (it takes less than 10 minutes), you’ll have a report that outlines what your next steps should be. You’ll have access to information on insurance, retirement, debt repayment, and more.
The site is sponsored by the National Foundation for Credit Counselors, a non-profit organization that provides free or low-cost credit counseling, and the NFCC has numerous tips to help you figure out how to start spending less and saving more, like this free budgeting worksheet and online calculators.
I took the assessment at MyMoneyCheckup and found it accurately depicted our current financial state. In my heart, this was not new information, but having it put into a pretty chart filled with action steps for me to take, made me realize what work I still have to do.
