interest first I cannot stress this enough but it’s more important to get rid of I interested than to keep lots of money in the bank this because banks offer very little interested stays and there is not even point in investing as you’d get ten percent year-on-year growth in the best case scenario so keep three months worth of cash in your bank account as emergency phone and use the rest to pay off your debt starting from the one with the highest interest tip number three so tip number four go through your expenses I imagine you have a pretty good understanding of where your money’s going so
