November is Financial Literacy month, which makes it a pretty important month because financial literacy is extremely important to everyone’s life.

Thanks to Glenn Cooke at, a bunch of Canadian bloggers are lighting up the blogosphere with the Blog for Financial Literacy campaign by sharing  “My best financial tip” and publishing it today.  The intention is to provide financial information to Canadians in a simple and easy to understand fashion, thus contributing to financial literacy.

Before I get into my tip, I have also made a list of other “Best Tips” from other bloggers.  In case I missed anyone, please send me the link and I would be happy to add you to the list.

My Best Financial Tip

My best financial tip is that the best tip is the implemented tip.  Below you will find lots of great ideas from saving, to budgeting to organizing to making more money.  The fact remains, there is no shortage of great ideas but an idea that is not implemented is a wasted idea.  In fact, I think of it as a wasted opportunity.

There’s an old saying that goes something like this:

If you always do what you have always done,

You will always get what you always got

If you want to improve your financial literacy, one would think more knowledge is the key.  In my opinion, knowledge is the start but action delivers the results.

Read through the following tips from different personal finance bloggers and start with the tip that resonates most with you.  Then figure out how to implement the strategy.  That’s the best tip I can give anyone!

Good luck!
