Success in the New Year

December 31, 2015: Success in the New Year

Before you get ready to ring in the new year, why not take a little bit of time to set yourself up for success in 2015?

This is the perfect time to begin the new year on the right fiscal foot.

This can look like:

*Setting up and agreeing upon a simple budget to try out for January.
*Figuring out how to keep track of your receipts and track spending habits.
*Planning to meet as a couple or a family once a week to assess your progress from the prior week.
*Using an app like Manila or Mint to not only track your spending but keep all of your bills in one place.

Remember you want to make your money work for you, not the other way around. Happy New Year!
