5 Tips to stick with your Financial New Year’s resolutions
This is the time of year for most people’s New Year’s resolutions start to slip. If you find yourself in that category, here are 5 tips to help you stick to your financial New Year’s resolutions:
Make a plan and set specific, achievable goals: Rather than resolving to “save more money,” set a specific goal such as “save $500 per month” or “pay off $5,000 of debt.” This will make it easier to track your progress and stay motivated.
Automate your finances: Set up automatic transfers to your savings account or automatic payments for bills to help you stay on track. This way, you won’t have to remember to do it manually each month.
Keep track of your spending: Use a budgeting app or create a spreadsheet to track your spending and make sure you’re on track to meet your financial goals. This will help you identify areas where you can cut back and make better financial decisions.
Get an accountability partner: Share your financial goals with a friend or family member and check in with them regularly to stay on track. Having someone to hold you accountable can help you stay motivated and focused.
Be flexible: Life happens, and it’s okay if you need to adjust your financial plan. Don’t get discouraged if you have a setback or if you need to make changes to your plan. The important thing is to keep working towards your financial goals.
If you didn’t make any resolutions, or goals for 2023-that might be a good place to start as well. Of course, if there’s any way we can help, don’t hesitate to reach out!
