Where Should My Next Dollar Go? (Free Download)

Last week, I spoke to somebody who wanted to know what the best option is for saving money.

In other words, where to save his money, and also what order to use, and be able to answer the question “where should the next dollar go?”


He had a couple of questions, which are very similar to what I see from others. The questions are about things like

    • Where and how do you start saving money?

    • Are you leaving too much in the savings accounts?

    • Are you allocating enough to all the things you should be thinking about?

    • Are you ready to invest your extra cash, and if so, where should that go?

    • In summary, what are the best options to save money today?
