 Check back monthly throughout 2013 for tips on staying on top of your finances all year round.

January Tips:

  • Begin to organize documents needed for the completion of your 2012 income tax return.
  • Shred documents that are no longer needed and prepare a space for this year’s receipts, warranties, paid bills and other documents
  • Do the math: Where are you now? Create a draft budget and track your expenses for several weeks or up to one month, and look for ways to save. 
  • Set realistic financial goals for the coming year
