The most important thing is putting down all your monthly expenses on a spreadsheet and finding the total costs per month. Compare it against your net income for the month. Make sure your expenses are under your income otherwise figuring out how to spend your money is pointless. If they’re high, start cutting useless things out. Definitely use an app like Mint to keep track of your money. Set up an emergency fund in case you lose your job. Put money into tax free retirement accounts. It’s free money so it’s pointless not to.
