Feed The Pig if you are 25 to 34 years old


Are you 25 to 34 years old? Do you have financial problems? Oh. Um. Duh, doesn’t everybody?

My son fits that age demographic and we just found this relatively new site.

It’s FUN and jam packed with Really Helpful resources. I thought it was a very ‘unfortunate’ site name and theme. My son tells me it’s not, for his demographic. Well ok, what do I know?

Quoting from the site:

 

The goal of the campaign is to encourage and help Americans aged 25 to 34 to take control of their personal finances.

Specifically, on this site you can:

  • Pick a personality similar to yours in Me Save? Then choose a set of spending habits you want to change or break and find out how much you can save over a month, a year or even 35 years!
  • Sync your Feed the Pig profile with Facebook or your iGoogle Homepage to track what you can save over time.
  • Find out how much you can save no matter what course your life takes in the 5% Challenge.
  • Take a quiz to see how well you understand the psychology behind our saving and spending habits.
  • Get savings tips, which you can rate and comment on.
  • Talk to others about how they “Feed the Pig.”
  • Watch and listen to Feed the Pig TV and radio ads.
  • Learn a ton more about saving through our Resources section and our companion site, 360financialliteracy.org, which has advice for people at all stages of life.
I did the Beat Your Brain quiz and only got 6 out of 12. Bleah, I thought I was good at running my finances…. guess we all have something more to learn.
