Money Making Sense

Money Making Sense host Heather Kelly doesn’t like to use dirty words like "budget" and "frugal." Instead, she focuses on how to find financial peace by better allocating your paychecks and analyzing the impact of simple family decisions. Each episode approaches the topic of personal finance from both a cost-savings and revenue-generating perspective. Covered topics include: vacationing on a budget, accumulating retirement savings on a limited income, optimizing your 401k and insurance plans, reducing household expenses, the financial impact of owning a pet, maximizing value when de-cluttering and selling personal property. Money Making Sense will give you practical ideas on how to improve your bottom line. Money Making Sense is a 2017 Podcast Awards Nominee.

The old adage, it's never too late, applies for starting a 529 college savings account.  But, it's also never too early.  Executive Director for Utah Education Savings Plan (UESP) Lynne Ward says as soon as your child is born, you should start putting money away for their advanced schooling.  AND... if you sign up shortly after baby is born... you can get a FREE Onsie.

You also get multiple tax benefits for opening a 529 plan with UESP.  No taxes on the gains IF the money is used for Qualified Higher Education Expenses; which include, housing, computers, books, and tuition.

Kilplinger's, Morningstar Investors Service and Clark Howard all ranked UESP as the top Savings Plan available in the country.  You don't have to be a Utah native to open an account with them.
