This week on the podcast we’re answering your questions! 1 – Should I close a credit card that has a $40 annual fee? 2 – As a minor with my first job, where should I save and invest my money? 3 – How do I get my spouse on board using one of the budgeting apps? And with those apps are there any security concerns? 4 – I have a chunk of money that I plan to live off of in the coming years- where should I put it? 5 – Should I consider financing a car in order to keep my credit score high?
And if you have a question for us, we’d love for you to submit your own via HowToMoney.com/ask/
