Money Management

Money (finances) is a topic as old as time. Regardless of how much or how little we make, most of us wish we could have more. Every day we are forced to make choices on what we do with our money, and there are no right or wrong ways to use it. Whether we spend, save, borrow, or invest money, each decision is personal and we are each responsible for the choices we make. With those choices come opportunities to change how we use our money.

By better understanding financial topics, we can each find success with the daily responsibilities we have in managing our money. The UF/IFAS Extension Family and Consumer Sciences money management program is here to help you better understand a variety of topics related to money and to provide you with tools you need to find your own financial success and security.
