My husband and I have just recently purchased our first home and I’m wondering how we should start to get our finances in order.
We currently have one checking account (we both use) and a savings account that’s left over from the down payment on our home. We have one credit card and 3 store cards (2 of which are paid of and hardly ever used).
Should we have a separate account for house stuff (repairs and such) or just keep that mixed in with our regular savings? Should we have another credit card? What’s your advice?
(I do plan on speaking to a financial adviser about this, just kind of feeling things out and hearing some ideas for now)
