With Financial Literacy month coming to a close, I thought it would be a great time to share with readers a nifty little personal finance education product by Nuru. These personal finance cards simulate a portable finance book broken down into various categories, such as:
I think this is a great product, particularly for someone in need of an introductory lesson on a broad range of financial concepts. If you just read and absorbed one single concept a day for one month you’d be exposed to 30 different personal finance terms and products.
When I was in my early 20’s I knew very little about personal finance concepts, such as mutual fund investing, bonds, etc. I spent a lot of time pouring over personal finance books trying to get a basic grounding in these concepts.
Too bad Nuru’s personal finance cards weren’t around back then! I could have tossed them in my book bag and reviewed them during breaks in between classes. The cards even come with a key ring, and the cards are punched so they can be loaded and transported together on the ring.
At $10 per deck, they are not necessarily cheap. However, try buying a personal finance book (or books) that covers the range of subjects these compact decks cover for less. They make a great gift for yourself, someone else, and as a bonus for fellow bloggers, these make an excellent reference when drafting posts on a particular subject.
