Financial literacy is the ability to understand and apply various financial skills, including budgeting, investing, and other financial management strategies.
Why It's Important
My, oh, my! Financial literacy is critical to master as it affects everything in your life, from well-being and relationships to opportunities that are afforded to you.

Budgets! This is my favorite topic ever; I love budgeting and I love teaching people about budgeting. You know what?

That was my smallest debt, now on to the next! Woohooo!
