Get to Your Financial Destination with Your GPS

I am not sure about you, but I know that I have wasted more money on improper spending habits than I even care to think about. Once I thought about it, I gave the GPS plan a try. As Americans, we waste 20-30% of our hard earned money on bad spending habits. Proper planning could help you to reach your financial destination of paying off debts faster. Think of it this way. When you go on a road trip, you don’t just start driving.

NerdWallet’s Gen Y Credit Union Contest

When I began writing this, I started thinking about my graduation commencement speech. Truth is, I graduated only five years ago and I could not tell you a single thing that the speaker said. Commencement is a big deal; it is one of the few things in life that works every time. No matter what happens you will always remain a graduate. So congratulations, you are now an adult! Welcome to the world of student loans. You think they are nice by giving you a whole six months to start paying them back but in reality you could use like six...
