10 Financial Commandments for Your 20s

It's funny.  I think of Kiplinger as a money magazine for old people (like me, I guess.)  However, they've recently put together a really good list of 10 Financial Commandments for Your 20s.  It's pretty comprehensive and lays out the steps that a younger person can take to help make future finances a lot easier.  In addition, it has lots of relevant links to explain each commandment, which really helps if you're not sure what they're talking about!

I feel pretty lucky that my husband and I were able to built a solid financial foundation during our 20s.  We didn't do everything right, but we did make some good decisions along the way.  This Kiplinger list will help  20-something readers to make those good choices and prepare themselves for a successful financial future.
