As a Financial Specialist, Jewell’s daily mission is to educate people about the psychological reasons behind unhealthy spending habits and coach them into achieving financial security.

In this episode, Jewell shares strategies to help you make smart money choices and get the most out of your tax refund.

Spenders vs. Savers: 5 Different Money Personality Types

Jewell broke down the most common money personality types and why it’s important to know which one you are and how you developed your personal habits.

Most people fit into one of these categories:

  • Natural spenders – they spend practically all of their money
  • Natural savers – they save practically all of their money
  • Spend first, save later
  • Save first, spend later
  • People who don’t make conscious money decisions – they often find $20 here or there because they left it laying around

How To Change Your Money Habits

The first step is to acknowledge your habits.

The second step is to determine how you developed your money habits. Were they learned during your childhood, based on how your parents treated money?

The third step is to focus and be intentional about changing them.

Jewell’s Suggestions for Getting the Most Out of Your Tax Refund

  1. Contribute to your retirement account.
  2. Start a medical expense fund for costs not covered by your health insurance.
  3. Set money aside for a well-deserved summer vacation.
  4. Set money aside to achieve a specific goal such as buying a home, graduation parties, buying a car, etc.
  5. Donate to your favorite charity.
  6. Pay off credit card debt.
  7. Start a college savings fund for your children or for yourself.
  8. Start a savings account for your children.
  9. Finish an existing home improvement project or start a new one.
  10. Contribute to your church fund, tithes, or missionary work.
  11. Start an investment fund.

Jewell reminds you to not get overwhelmed thinking about doing everything on her list. If you have bills that need to be paid, pay them first. Then make a smart choice about how you will allocate the rest of your tax return.

Start small, but just do something. Even if you have to start by saving $10 or $20 a month, that’s better than nothing.
