Know before you owe
Taking on debt can be a big responsibility. You are committing to paying money back within a certain time-frame, plus interest. Borrowing money will affect your future finances and quite possibly your lifestyle.

Before you consider a loan or a credit card, you need to do your homework. First step is to evaluate whether your current and future financial situation can sustain a new debt. As with any other product, when it comes to taking out a loan, it pays to shop around and compare interest rates, charges and any additional fees. Don’t forget to check the small print to see if you’re eligible and what are your obligations. Read carefully terms and conditions.

Clearing out financial clutter

You may be anxious to get started, but it is hard to get motivated when you are knee-deep in paperwork.

Getting your financial house organized is a great way to begin on your path toward financial wellness. But before you bulldoze that pile, you should know that some things are worth hanging on to. The key is to know what to keep and what to toss.

Did you know that your health can become your wealth? CBD Active Saver App will do just that - encourage you to stay active and get rewarded with higher interest rate, to help you save more.
