4 Tips to Master Your Personal Finance 

The fact that you are reading this article shows that you want to improve your financial situation. 

That’s great. But for any of these personal finance tips to work, you gotta do more than just talk about it, you gotta do it. 

That being said, the first thing to do to improve any condition is to know exactly where you stand. 

These four tips will help you…

  1. Organize your financial data. 
  2. Assess your current status. 
  3. Begin work on improving it.
  4. Ensure that you never get in trouble again. 

And, the sooner you get started, the better — so, let’s jump right in… 

Save or Shred EVERYTHING 

As I mentioned earlier, step number one is to get organized. 

That means getting all of your financial documents together…

Separating them into save or shred piles…

Putting ones you need to keep together in a compressive way…

Then, dispose of the rest. 


The purpose is to see everything going on with your money at a glance. After, any errors or bad spending habits will easily jump out at you. 

However, you may have to dig deeper to find some issues… 

Verify Your Credit Score 

Your credit score is not a top priority when you start improving your finances. Nonetheless, you want to ensure that nothing is there that shouldn’t be. 

Being in control is all about having good information and awareness. This applies to your capital above all else… 

Further, don’t just look up “free credit score” online. Get it from a trusted source like Annual Credit (This is the official government website for obtaining your credit score.) 

That way your private information is safe and the numbers are accurate. 

Now that you have crossed all the T’s and dotted the I’s, it’s time to implement the more difficult personal finance tips. 

Trash Toxic Spending Habits 

You probably noticed red flags in how you spend money as you went through your paperwork. Don’t get discouraged because this is the point where you do something about it.

Believe it or not, one of my best personal finance tips has nothing to do with how much you spend…


But don’t misunderstand that as permission to “treat yourself.” When it comes to finances as you’re working towards success, it’s about being disciplined about your money. 

In short, live off your case cost of living until you can afford to change your lifestyle — never before. 

To do that, you need to establish strict boundaries… 

Set Up Policies for Your Future Financial Success

No matter what the game is, you have to know the rules to win. Creating financial stability is no different. 

Make these regulations for yourself by determining how you can best avoid pitfalls and temptations.  This video shows a few of mine to help give you some ideas… 

Of course, more important than writing these rules up neatly is following them with no exceptions. 

I phrase this as “paying the price now to pay any price later.” 

After all, you don’t want to undo all the work you did implementing these personal finance tips by easing the reins. 

These Personal Finance Tips Will Work if You Let Them…

At the end of the day, planning and organizing will only get you so far. Action is the key to making any personal finance plans or tips effective… 

So, I’m sorry to say that the advice in this is not a shortcut. But, in my experience, they get you to your financial goals in the long run. 

I encourage you to stick with these tips on your road to being great.
