Episode Transcription:

Welcome to Money Talk With Tiff, a podcast where we discuss everything money from tips and tricks to current events, follow me on my journey to become debt-free and meet other cool people along the way. I am your host, Tiffany Grant now let's talk money. 

I want to talk about something extremely personal. And that's relationships with money. Everybody's experiences with money and their role models with money are different from person to person. So a little bit about how I got interested in money. Growing up, I didn't really have solid financial role models. Everybody in my family is a spender.

A LITTLE EMERGENCY FUND

debt saving money Feb 04, 2018

The infamous emergency fund!  Most people know what it is but do you have anything saved for a rainy day?  Right now, I have a little over $1000 saved in case I need it.  Why not 3 - 6 months like you read and hear about from financial experts?

Well, the short answer is because I have debt.  Would you borrow money at, let's say, 6% interest to fund an emergency fund?  I wouldn't.  Especially not when it is only making 1.30% sitting in a savings account.  My small emergency fund won't be like that forever.  I will eventually have a 3 - 6 month emergency fund but I won't start working on that until I have tackled most if not all of my debt.  The way the job market is now, if I were to lose my job, it would not be difficult to find another one even if it was something I didn't love to do.  So, I feel comfortable having only a little over $1000 to fall back on.

NEW YEAR, NEW YOU? HOW BUDGETING CAN HELP!

It's New Year's Eve!  This marks the occasion when everyone decides on their New Year's resolutions.  According to statisticbrain.com, the top resolution is to "lose weight/eat healthy" followed by "life/self-improvements" as number two.  These are great but I want to focus on the third most popular resolution which is "better financial decisions".  I assume you are here because this is where you want to improve.  What if I told you that by focusing on this one goal you can positively impact the other two top resolutions?  It has been proven that money issues cause stress and stress causes health issues.  That knocks out number 2!  But, how is "better financial decisions" linked to losing weight and healthier eating?  Allow me to explain!  One of the cornerstones of being wealthy is budgeting.  Most of the time eating unhealthy (fast food/junk food) is something that can be cut from your budget or minimized.  Therefore,...

6 TIPS TO AN (UN)STRESSFUL HOLIDAY SEASON

'Tis the season of spending!  The National Retail Federation expects retail sales during November and December to be about $682 billion!  (I think we are in the wrong business)  They expect each consumer to spend an average of $967.13.  This is massive spending!  Most Americans get into a ton of debt during this time and spend the better part of the new year trying to pay it down.  Don't let this happen to you!  In this article, I'll offer six of my top tips to ensure you are prepared for next year and keep your spending in check.
 
Tip #1 - The Holiday Season Comes Every Year
Well, duh, Tiffany!  It may seem like I am stating the obvious but every year people wait until the last minute to plan for it.  This is a disaster waiting to happen!  Not planning throughout the year puts you in a position where you have to scrape together the last few paychecks before the holiday to do all of your shopping.  Talk about stressful!...
