This week’s news on growing recession fears:

With so much confusion, conflicting information, and differing opinions among economists, what should consumers do? Here are some tips for preparing your finances for a possible upcoming recession:

  1. Pay off debt as soon as possible. Recession or not, paying off debt is a good financial move to make. When you’re finished paying off any debt you have, you’ll have more room in your budget for saving money!
  2. Build an emergency fund. You should have 3 to 6 months’ worth of expenses saved up for emergency situations, such as being laid off due to a recession.
  3. Get a side job. If you aren’t able to save as much money as you would like to every month, consider getting a side job. You can put the income you earn from a side job into your emergency fund to build it faster.
  4. Adjust 401(k). If you are close to retirement, you should move your retirement funds into bonds instead of stocks. However, if you are still early in your career, you should have your retirement funds in stocks. Even with a recession, your investments will have enough time to recover and grow.
