Money Making Sense

Money Making Sense Host Heather Kelly doesn't like to use dirty words like "budget" and "frugal." Instead, she focuses on how to find financial peace by better allocating your paychecks and analyzing the impact of simple family decisions. Each episode approaches the topic of personal finance from both a cost-savings and revenue-generating perspective. Covered topics include: vacationing on a budget, accumulating retirement savings on a limited income, optimizing your 401k and insurance plans, reducing household expenses, the financial impact of owning a pet, maximizing value when de-cluttering and selling personal property. Money Making Sense will give you practical ideas on how to improve your bottom line.
