Guest blogger Luna Jaffe offers 4 money-savvy tips for artists on Finance Fridays during the month of October.
Check your bank and credit card statements daily or weekly to avoid surprises and remain money-savvy.
You can use the online tools offered by your bank or try the free access at Mint.
Look for anything you don't recognize or disagree with (like fees!) and follow up.
Note items that have cleared in your check register.
The more often you check, the less cumbersome each session will be. These small steps add up.
You know where you are with your financial health, which allows you to make more conscious decisions about spending and saving.

Luna, Thanks for the tip…I agree checking my balance every 2 days keeps me on toes to look for more income streams or watch my expenses.
Thank you Alyson for coming up with Finance Fridays…
We’ll give the credit to Luna.
