THE BASICS (MyMoney.gov)

The Five Principles

  • Earn - Make the most of what you earn by understanding your pay and benefits.

  • Save & Invest - It’s never too early to start saving for future goals such as a house or retirement, even by saving small amounts.

  • Protect – Taking precautions about your financial situation, accumulate emergency savings, and have the right insurance.

  • Spend – Be sure you are getting a good value, especially with big purchases, by shopping around and comparing prices and products.

  • Borrow – Borrowing money can enable some essential purchases and builds credit, but interest costs can be expenses. And, if you borrow too much, you will have a large debt to be repaid.
