9 Things Every Twentysomething Needs To Know About Money

UGH. But seriously, these are things you really need to know.

1. Actually make a budget. No, seriously, make a budget.

2. Prune your subscriptions.

3. Save. Duh.

4. Even though you're young, save for retirement, preferably in a 401(k).

5. Invest if possible, but keep it simple.

6. Be careful with credit cards.

7. ...but be a credit card baller, if you can.

8. Be prepared for a big financial snafu.

9. Spend on experiences, not stuff.

And if all of this fails... you can always just marry rich.
