What to do with a windfall: Personal Finance Tips and Tricks

In this video, Jane Barratt discusses what to do if you receive a windfall. After receiving a windfall, the first thing to do is to check if the money is taxable. If a windfall is taxable, take the amount and do not spend it until the tax bill comes in. Ask yourself how the money can improve your long-term financial situation. Additionally, decide where every dollar will go before spending any money. Do not save what is left over from spending; spend what is left over after you've saved.
