April, besides having a horrible day for pranks, is National Financial Literacy Month. It’s been promoted as such since 2000 and was officially recognized by the U.S. Congress in 2003. Too bad they haven’t improved their own financial literacy since then. But, I know many of us have. There are several ways you can improve your financial literacy here at Beating Broke. Below is a list of some of the topics that you should peruse.
- Beating Broke Rules
- Financial Truths
- Guru Advice
- Personal Finance Education
- Financial Mistakes
That should get you started. J.D. over at Get Rich Slowly has a great collection of the posts that he’s done that you should check out as soon as you’re done reading those ones from Beating Broke.
While we’re celebrating, let’s share a story or two. And while we’re at it, let’s make it a Giveaway! The lucky winner will receive a $10 Amazon Gift Card. Tell us a story of how you’ve improved your financial literacy in the last year. You can do it with a comment here, or a blog post on your blog if you like. If you do a blog post, though, please come back here and leave a comment so I can find your post and count your entry. We’ll run it through Monday the 5th. On Tuesday the 6th, I’ll compile all the comments here, and use random.org to pick a winner. Please restrain yourself to only one entry each.
Now, let’s hear those stories!
UPDATE! We have a Winner! Comment #3 wins the $10 Gift Card from Amazon! Congratulations Mike from Personal Finance Ninja! I’ve dropped you an email and we can sort out the details. Thanks for everyone for participating!
