46 Things I Wish My Mom Taught Me About Money

46 Things I Wish My Mom Taught Me About Money

Another long finance post surfaces recently is called 46 Things I Wish My Mom Taught Me About Money by Lisa Laprade. She lists 46 things she wished to know about earlier in her life. The areas spread into different areas such as buying a house, credit & debt, education, general spending, health, insurance, investment, life insurance, loans & borrowing money, retirement, savings and taxes:

Back in the day when I was growing up, my mom taught me all of those little things that any young lady should know: How to sew a button on a shirt, knit a scarf, clean a house from top to bottom, and so on. I thought she had covered everything, but she left out two things that ended up being of great importance- cooking and money.

As I approach 40, I still can’t make my way around a kitchen, but I did teach myself to make a mean macaroni and cheese, as well as quite a bit about money and finance. Personal finance can sometimes seem maddingly complex, but it doesn’t have to be; knowledge of some basic principles will make your life much, much easier.

I love this kind of post where the author cuts the chase, and summarized some tips that gathered through experiences.
