April is Financial Literacy Month, which makes it a great time to remember why financial knowledge and education are the keys to maintaining good financial health. A solid understanding of concepts such as budgeting, credit and savings can help you make better financial decisions in the future.

Looking to take some steps towards better financial literacy? Here are some simple things that you can do:

  • Make Budgeting a Monthly Habit: Creating a budget is a great way to better understand your monthly expenses and spending limitations. Knowing where your money goes each month can help you plan or change spending habits to accommodate future expenses, like going on your dream vacation.
  • Visit Wallet Wisdom: Our Wallet Wisdom site has a wealth of financial education tools and resources, including free online courses, budgeting calculators and articles on everything from finding the best auto loan to budget-friendly recipes.
