7 Financial Goals You Should Be Setting for the New Year
The New Year is finally here! With all that has come about unexpectedly this past year, making sure your finances are in check is more important than ever.
If you haven’t thought about creating some resolutions for 2021, here are some financially-focused goals you should be setting for this year.
1. Track Your Expenses Regularly
First things first: Schedule time to take a look back at previous years to get a good idea of how much (generally) you’re spending per month.
This will allow you to set a budget (if you don’t have one already), and have a clearer picture of how much money you can realistically save. Not only that, but it can shift your mindset and force you to think through on all your purchases.
