Brush up on your financial literacy - ROCHESTERFIRST: CPA Scott Adair from the New York State Society of CPA's said now is a great time to improve your financial literacy Monday during News 8 at Sunrise.
"I think the best place to start is making a financial plan for yourself, setting up a monthly budget and adhering to that monthly budget," Adair said. "What it should identify in that budget is where you can save some money. Set it aside for either a savings account or set it aside for retirement. It's all about creating that habit of putting money aside for things."
Adair said we should adopt habits to keep track of our expenses. "Make sure that you're mindful of not over-spending. Make�sure that you've got thing identified that are nice versus necessary items in your budget."
