About Money Matters

—Written by Dr. Carolyn Bird, AFC

Your money matters a great deal! In fact, the financial decisions you make early in life have a profound effect on your financial security throughout your adult life. We can’t know what financial challenges will face us in the future. So, it’s never too early to start developing your own strategies for making the most of your money.

The good news is that financial decision-making is an ongoing and integral part of life. So there are opportunities to continue to learn, adapt, and improve our approach to financial decisions. If you are a parent, you can help your children learn the value of money and the importance of handling it wisely when they are young. At the Money Matters portal, you can access to information and tools that will help you get your finances organized to make the most of your money. This site features links to information from the N.C. Cooperative Extension Service, other state Extension resources, and other sources of reliable information. So, don’t waste any time! Start now to create a more secure future.
