Tell Us About The Best Financial Decision You've Ever Made

Whether it was something small or a major change, I want to hear all about it.

When we talk about money, we have a tendency to focus on our mistakes. It makes sense — managing money is just straight-up hard sometimes, and it's really easy to get caught up in all the ways it can go wrong.

But there are also a lot of ways it can go right! So I'm genuinely curious to hear about the very best financial decision you've ever made.

Maybe it was something small that ended up freeing up more money in your budget, like switching to a cheaper phone plan. Paying $15 a month for your service instead of $80 helped you save $780 in a year.

Or perhaps you're glad you went to community college before transferring to a university. You were able to complete your general ed credits at a much lower cost, and you cut down the amount of student loans you'd have to borrow.

Or maybe you'd share that you finally started an emergency fund this year to help you cover those annoying surprise bills that always seem to pop up. You've set a couple hundred dollars aside so far, and just knowing that you have a little bit of cushion makes you feel so much better.

Whatever it was, tell me your best money move in the comments and you could be featured in a BuzzFeed Community post.
