Budgeting is the key to financial planning. Understanding what you’re earning and spending as well as what you own and owe is essential to figuring out your current situation. Combined with future changes (children, job changes, retirement, etc.), these factors bring into focus the route you will need to take to have your hoped-for lifestyle.
Getting a handle on what you owe and learning how you can be better positioned is a critical element in stabilizing your finances and moving comfortably toward your future goals. First, gather the information. Then, step back, evaluate, and consider the available options for relieving pressure and improving your situation.
Having children can be one of the great pleasures of life, but the cost of educating children is a serious matter, for which planning (and saving) cannot be done soon enough. Fortunately, there are options that can ease the burden of setting aside what will be needed to take care of education costs when they finally need to be paid.
Retirement planning begins with what you need to do before you retire to ensure sufficient wherewithal to maintain your lifestyle. And it continues with how you will need to adjust when your income shifts from employment earnings to earnings on investments perhaps supplemented by Social Security and/or pension income.
