I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for American Express Serve. I applied for the Serve Cash Back card to facilitate my review and received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
When I was a kid, I remember how much I loved to save. I thought I wanted to be a banker, because I loved to count my money and save it. I ultimately went to college and received my degree in Business Administration. I opened my first Roth IRA when I was only 19. Being smart financially is something that I’ve enjoyed throughout my life, and yet I like it to be easy to make smart money decisions. While I know my husband and I make wise long-term decisions on a regular basis, the short-term decisions are somewhat lacking. We budget for big purchases but the small ones slip on through. And I’ve noticed that our bank account has suffered for this because all those little purchases can add up quickly. Eating out, coffee shop stops, and impulse shopping at our favorite retailers have taken their tole. I don’t want to have to question every little purchase like treating my little guy to a smoothie, but I do want to be responsible.
