If your financial situation seems like a mess, it can be difficult to know where to start cleaning up. This interactive tool from Fidelity asks you a few questions to help you figure out how to get started. The tool walks you through some questions about your financial situation, and you dish the details. After the whole process, you get a brief overview of the areas you should focus on and the steps you should take to improve in those areas.
Keep in mind, the questions are targeted at Americans, and Fidelity is a financial company that has a vested interest in customers doing business with them. However, most of the steps they recommend point to more of their free tools, which can be pretty helpful with budgeting and figuring out how much to sock away even if you're not living in the US. This tool is a very basic one, but for people just starting to get their finances in order, it could come in handy. Check it out at the link below.
