I’m ashamed to admit that my least favorite high school class was Financial Literacy. In my teenage brain, “smart financial decisions” were the least of my worries; I didn’t understand why I had to take a class about money management. However this Financial Literacy class ended up teaching me many important financial life lessons. I’m so glad I learned about Financial Literacy early on in life.
Did you know that April is National Financial Literacy Month? In honor of National Financial Literacy Month, TCF Bank, a Minnesota-based national bank, has created a fun quiz to help you find your “financial animal.” To be completely honest, I was a bit afraid to find out my “financial animal.” However, I enjoyed the fun and unique questions in this quiz helping me consider the role of financial literacy in my life.
What to know the results of this six question quiz? Drum roll please….
“I’m a Coyote. I’m a crafty scavenger, always on the hunt for a bargain. My ideal day is spent digging in the couch cushions for spare change, clipping coupons and scouring the web for promo codes. It can be a lot of work, but it’s totally worth it for the sense of accomplishment I feel after scoring a killer deal.”
This description fits me perfectly! I know I may be a little weird, but I love creating my monthly Excel budget spreadsheet. I rarely buy anything that’s not on sale. Walking into a store, I always go straight to the back of the store to find the bargains. Every week before grocery shopping, I clip my coupons – saving money makes me SO happy. Yes, it takes a lot of time, but I enjoy saving money!
Now that I have a son, financial literacy takes on a whole new meaning. Luckily, TCF Bank offers a Financial Literacy Resource Center to help simplify financial concepts. This tool is perfect as I am exploring saving options for my son’s college fund. With many videos, animations, and games, I am able to better understand finances. My future financial goals include creating a savings plan for my son (and any future children). I feel that with the help of TCF Bank’s Financial Literacy Resource Center, I’ll be able to find the best financial plan for my family.
