Money management refers to how you handle all aspects of your finances, from making a budget for where each paycheck goes to setting long-term goals to picking investments that will help you to reach those goals. Money management is not just about saying „no” to any purchase, but developing a plan that allows you to say „yes” to the things that are most important to you. Any amount of money can prove to be too little if you don’t have good money management skills.
