How Millennials Can Get Ahead Financially

Tips from personal finance bloggers about how young adults can pay down debt and take charge of their money.

Kiplinger's Personal Finance Editor Janet Bodnar recently shared tips in her Money Smart Kids column for parents who want to help their adult children improve their finances. In Money Advice for Millennials, she recommended sources and tools parents can use to provide their kids with trustworthy advice. And in The Right Way to Help Your Adult Children, she offered guidelines for parents looking to motivate their millennials to move on.

To complement Janet's advice, I rounded up tips from personal finance bloggers to help millennials themselves take control of their finances.
