When it comes to managing your money, following some guidelines to help you stay on the right path certainly beats having no plan and hoping for the best.
Consider these seven easy-to-adopt tips in the new year, and start (or continue) your path to healthier finances in 2017:
You deserve to have healthy finances and to worry less. By paying yourself first each month, your anxiety can be reduced by watching a nest egg grow and knowing that you're ready for what life throws your way. A nest egg is fantastic for covering unexpected situations that may arise or even to just do something nice for yourself and those you love.
Put a cap on spending by making the PNC SmartAccess® Prepaid Visa® card your payment method of choice for everyday purchases. After evaluating your needs and creating a budget, you can add specific amounts of cash to your card to set limits for yourself and your family.
No matter what major purchase is on your mind, make a list of your wishes with the Virtual Wallet® Wish List tool. As you save, watch as you get closer to reaching each of your goals.
All debt is not created equal. Prioritize paying down credit cards with higher interest rates first. Consider opening a PNC Core℠ Visa® Credit Card, which offers the lowest introductory APR available on balance transfers, to tackle credit card debt head-on.

Write your short, medium and long-term goals down, financially speaking. You are more likely to achieve what you write on paper and can reflect upon. No need to lock it up... share with someone you trust and admire who can further motivate and empower you.
At PNC, we are committed to protecting your personal and financial information. But, there are also actions you can take to further safeguard your information from fraud. Storing sensitive personal information in a safe deposit box and regularly checking your bank statements and credit reports are a few small but effective actions you can take.
