Budgeting is the first step in any financial plan. Allocating every dollar that is earned before it is spent will keep you making progress towards your financial goals.
A dollar in interest today is actually many dollars had you been able to invest it. Paying down debt (particularly high interest debt) will get you closer to your financial goals than just savings due to the compound effect of (debt) interest and (investment) returns. It should be a priority in every financial plan.
Savings is key to being prepared for emergencies. While investments are great for long-term goals, savings are great for short-term goals where you cannot afford to lose money in a down market.
For long-term goals such as a child's college or your own retirement investing is the way to go. While compound returns do not seem like much in the first few years after some time they will contribute the bulk of the funds for your goal.
