NEW YEAR’S FINANCIAL RESOLUTIONS

Here we are in the New Year. This is the perfect time to consider our New Year Resolutions for many areas of our lives; especially the Financial part. Now is the time to look at our finances, spending habits, debts, credit cards, insurance coverage’s, future, and activities that put us in the status and position we are in today. Some of us are happy with their financial situation, while others wish to change theirs.

 

Whether you are poor, average, or rich, everyone needs to look at his/her financial picture at least on an annual, or preferably a quarterly basis. My best advice is to review your finances monthly.  Doing so helps you renew or reinforce what you are doing, and allows you an opportunity to correct any bad habits that may hold you back from financial success.

 

As with any successful accomplishment, you must start with a guide, plan, blueprint, or charter. Use whatever word that helps you understand the need for consistency. Such a plan keeps you focused and on track toward the result or destination you desire. The same steps that help you lose weight, complete a college degree, or break bad habits are useful to begin improving your financial goals. I have listed the top 6 steps to help you financially in the New Year. Each one is a heading with sub tasks below to better explain how each step will help you toward financial success.

 

  1. Pay off Holiday debts (should be done within 90 days of new year)

 

  1. Track your spending & create a budget (keep every receipt for the first three months)

 

  1. Start savings plan (New year Holiday budget, retirement savings, keep your change in clear piggy bank)

 

  1. Pay down debt (smallest first, then move up and snowball)

 

  1. Review your credit report every 4 months (free from each agency annually -Transunion, Equifax, Experian) Helps prevent identity theft, and improves your credit status if errors found. Remember, a free report does not mean a free credit score.

 

  1. Check your insurance policies (Many people over-insure and under-insure property)

 

Each step is independent of the other, and can be started and continued its own.  By completing each step regularly, you will see your debt go away, and your bank account increase. Remember that re-visiting, reviewing, and renewing your goals regularly will help keep you on track toward your financial success.
