This site will give you some ideas on how to relentlessly improve your finances.  Here are the most important articles to get started with:

1.  Stop depending on the bank of Mom and Dad and live on your own means.
2.  Realize how important your credit score is and then improve it.
3.  Understand the wealth that you already have.
4.  Understand that you have less money than you think you do, and that you need an emergency fund.
5.  Track your spending to avoid most financial surprises.
6.  Create a proper budget.
7.  Accumulate more savings easily and then open multiple savings accounts for multiple savings goals.
8.  If you're working, you need to start planning your retirement with your 401K and Roth IRA.
My investing primer series of posts:
9.  Apply for credit cards, then use the points and rewards to travel and stay in hotels for free.  See my favorite personal and business credit cards here.
10.  Use your credit card responsibly to avoid getting overwhelmed with debt and to maximize the benefits your card offers.
11.  Stop procrastinating.  Keeping your intentions realistic will help you manage your time.
