The Wealth Edit has kicked off its Good with Money Challenge, where, from June 1 to August 15, participants will aim to save $5,000 – and learn useful savings tips in the process. Throughout these 75 days, we’re featuring women who are #goodwithmoney – hopefully they’ll inspire you through their tips and tricks to realize that you are also good with money and, like the rest of us, getting better every day.
It’s interesting – I don’t feel all that great with money, because I truly enjoy spending money and love all things luxury, from hotels to trips, cars, clothing, and jewelry. BUT I am also committed to saving for our short-, mid-, and long-term goals and leaving a legacy for our children, our grandchildren, and beyond.
I save consistently using weekly automatic withdrawals through a number of savings and investment vehicles – like Stash and my Capital One 360 savings accounts – and share my goals with a few close friends who help keep me accountable.
