Get a Financial Life: Personal Finance in Your Twenties and Thirties

Life brings more personal, social and financial challenges than ever to those in their twenties and thirties.

The fourth edition Get a Financial Life is updated to continue guiding younger adults in their quest for financial security.

Millennials show incredible awareness of their social situation that is largely inherited. They handle their awareness gracefully despite record student loan debt, out of the world rents, and job opportunities that are as uncertain as the economy.

Beth Kobliner brings the experience of two decades to help young adults. She understands the challenges and brings an easy style to help understand how getting out of debt doesn’t have to be a pipe dream.

She provides practical steps toward saving and investing.

Her insights are grounded in reality to help learn and develop the skills and habits that should last a lifetime.

Avoiding costly errors in tax planning and debt management is not forgotten in this guide.

Is everything well with the book?

Of course not.

Some readers believe it to be dated. Others feel that Beth is out of touch because of her age and financial status.

Find out for yourself.

Budget Planner

Budget planner software or budget planning online serves two purposes. The first is to get out of possible financial problems. Those who have overextended themselves and need help from credit counseling and mediation firms fall in the extreme of this category.  Losing one income, medical emergencies are other examples when budget planning becomes important in your life.

The other purpose for planning your budget is to reach a goal. It could a simple one like a major purchase from a refrigerator,  to a car or a home. Or it could be an upcoming major anniversary, an education fund or retirement. As you begin your research, remember that these are software programs incapable to have human discipline, desires, and shortcomings. You still have to prioritize what is important in your life and exercise the discipline required to stay with your priorities.

The real budget planner is you. Understating your weaknesses and strengths and working with them has more impact on your budget than understanding the budgeting software.
