Pay your credit card balances in full each month and don't charge more than you can afford to pay off each month.

BUDGET, BUDGET, BUDGET! Pay off all of your debts (yes, even your house), invest for retirement, and never worry about money again. No debt = living life to the max with no regrets!

#1: Save up three months of your salary for emergencies. #2: Only use your credit card when you are able to afford to pay it off each month. #3: Full Price is for Suckers! (Always shop around before making any purchases).

As a couple set a budget on only one of your incomes. If you can't pay for it on the one persons income then you probably don't really need it. Then if something happens and one of you can't work, you know you can make it. Put the money the other one makes in savings, invest towards retirement, and pay things off early.
