My Financial TO DO TODAY list reminds me to carry on learning and teaching financial literacy to myself and my son.
- It helps me consider my emotional relationship with money.
- It guides me to gently think about my spending habits.
- It plants small seeds about why I feel a certain way about spending or saving money.
- It reminds me to chat to my son often about this part of our lives.
- It nudges me to ask myself some pretty hectic questions about myself and my financial habits.
- It makes sure that I learn the actual nuts and bolts of personal finance (there is so much to learn!).
- It guides me to be curious and never stop reading and learning.
- It definitely makes me more aware of that cup of wonderfully, warm, creamy, emotionally satisfying cup of take-out coffee in my hand and how much I could save over 20 years if it wasn’t in my hand.
I tend to be an all-or-nothing type of gal, so I can rush off at a tangent at the mere sniff of something new to experience or learn about. So this Financial TO DO TODAY list sort of keeps me on my financial literacy track.
