Teens 20s 30s 40s 50s 60s 70s+ Home

Family, fun and finances

Let's hope at this juncture, you've established your career and have a pretty good grasp of your finances. You're geared up to move forward with life. Maybe you're married or getting married and are looking for a home. Could be that you're getting comfortable with the pitter-patter of little feet around the house. Whatever your personal situation, it seems like responsibility kicks up to a whole new level in this decade.

Keep your eyes on the cash flow and plan out your family spending strategies. Pay yourself first by steadily contributing to your retirement accounts. You'll find it easier to sleep if you've got a handle on your finances, even if a little one seems to find 2 a.m. a great time to eat!
