Way back at the beginning of the month, in celebration of Financial Literacy Month, I took the pledge. In fact, I took a few pledges. My pledges involved making a change (a big one, in my case), fixing a problem and acquiring knowledge. Here’s what I pledged to do: Look into reducing my monthly banking fees; Save money by eating from home more often; Speak with a financial advisor and/or small business accountant to prepare for the upcoming tax year. Are you curious to see if I followed through? Here’s what I did.
