When the holidays end and the new year begins, it’s a good time to reassess your financial situation and see if there are any adjustments to be made. Taking some time to review your spending and saving habits is a great way to give your budget a check up and make any necessary changes. If you’ve overspent through the holidays, it’s a good idea to revisit your balance sheet to see where you stand. You’ll be surprised at how small changes can make a big difference!
Review your budget
The first step towards finding a debt solution is to review your finances and establish budgeting techniques. Take stock of all of your expenditures each month – no matter how big or small. Make sure to include a category for miscellaneous items like your morning latte or your afternoon smoothie. Once you have tallied all of your line items, see where you stand in relation to your income. Are you meeting your needs? Are there areas in which you could improve? Set goals based on your data and plan to act on them.

Assess your Debt
If you have a lot of debt, make sure you are able to manage your monthly payments and keep your credit score intact. Making interest only payments is a no-win situation that can have you paying much more than you originally borrowed, without paying down your principal. Consider making changes in your daily spending habits to free some cash for debt reduction. A little belt tightening now can help you out in the long run. Lower credit payments and a better credit score will be your best reward.
