Spring Clean Your Finances

Presented by TP Mechanical | Provided by HORAN

Shopping backgroundIf you haven’t already, spring is a great time to get a handle on your debt, especially if you have holiday bills due. Revisit your accounts to find out exactly how much you owe and what the interest rate is per account. It may be possible to refinance or consolidate debt at a lower interest rate than what you’re currently paying. Once you’ve done that, set up a new monthly budget for the year, taking into account debt and insurance payments, savings deposits, and living and entertainment expenses.

Other steps you can take to reorganize your finances include throwing away non-essential account statements from the last year, gathering your tax information, checking your credit report, updating dependent and beneficiary information and getting new quotes for insurance policies if you think it’s possible to obtain the same quality of coverage for less.
