Financial Tip: The Money Chat Date Night
As always we’re striving to bring great financial and budgeting advice for a successful wedding, honeymoon, and now, marriage! Did you know that 45% of married couples divorce over financial disputes — yikes! This week Sara recommended the Money Chat Date Night. It’s easy — open a bottle of wine and get to discussing all your important money stuff– income, expenses, debt and assets. Talk about your goals and ways you can make adjustments to reach them. Having a solid plan and checking on it periodically is the key to success in any venture! To make it fun, get out your favorite board game, or queue up a movie to enjoy when the chat is over. Then relish in the feeling of accomplishment. You’re ahead of the game! Read more financial tips on Sara’s Huffington Post blog, here.
Thanks for tuning in this week, we hope you have a great Valentine’s Day and we look forward to sharing some more fun ideas with you in our next broadcast, Wednesday February 17. Please share our show with your friends (@honeyfund on Periscope). If you missed it you can watch the reply on YouTube:
