Family Finances

At my first job out of law school, many of my young co-workers started calling me one day asking for advice when we received emails about contributing to our 401Ks. Apparently, one overheard conversation I had with a friend by the water cooler let the word out that I knew something about personal finance. I don’t think I knew anything special, but I did learn the basics at a young age. In these posts I lay out what you need to know as a single twentysomething, when you decide to get engaged or get married, and what happens when a baby enters the picture when it comes to your wallet and your bank account. Credit where credit is due – there are plenty of links to other resources in these posts!
