I recently started a new job, which gave me the opportunity to rollover my previous retirement plan. This, along with Anna Newell Jones’s money-smart blog And Then She Saved, led Sarah and me to think a bit more about our finances in general.
While we are fairly frugal most of the time, it’s probably always a good idea to know what you’re spending money on and what goals you should be saving for. The whole goal thing is something we haven’t really been doing much of since we accomplished Dollymoon 2012. But lately, we’ve been taking a look at our finances, feeling like grownups, and learning a few things. We’re just getting started, but we thought that some of you might be in a similar situation and would like to learn a few things, too. So, We’re going to start blogging every onceinawhile about monies.
So here’s the innaugrual piece of knowledge, which is really basic but something we just didn’t know was possible. Much like the do-not-call registry, you can sign up to stop receiving credit card offers. Now even if you aren’t tempted to sign up for credit cards you get in the mail, this way you won’t have to deal with it at all. Just head over to optoutprescreen.com to sign up. For a little more info about this and similar features, check out the FTC‘s site.
Ok, that one’s pretty easy. We’re hoping to have some more in-depth posts in the future, but this one was so exciting we needed to let you know about it at once!
