(IDAHO FALLS) – Idaho has been ranked third best in the nation for how its residents manage their money. Kiplinger’s Magazine ranked the Gem State among the best in the country, with Minnesota taking top honors. Mississippi was ranked in last place. Financial expert Luke Erickson of Rexburg says he isn’t surprised to see Idaho make the list. He cautions that Idahoans should still make a conscious effort to save, pay off large debts, and build credit.
