5 Tips for Meeting your 2018 Financial Goals

house & money Making better financial decisions is consistently at the top of Americans’ New Year’s resolution list. Here are Willis Allen’s top tips for getting your financial house in order in 2018.

  • Set a goal. Do you want to buy a home? Go back to school? Retire? Keeping your sights set on the endgame can help keep you on track.
  • Be realistic about your budget. Take a hard look at where you spend your money and identify areas where the purse strings can be tightened. Money  management apps like Wally, GoodBudget and Mint can help.
  • Pay off debt. Depending on your debt load, you could set up a payment plan, reduce your spending, or get a second job.
  • Max out matches. If your company matches retirement contributions, start saving the amount to meet that mark. You don’t want to leave “free money” on the table!
  • Get creative about spending less. Can you exercise outside instead of joining a gym? Would meal-planning help you cut down on your grocery bills? Could date night be a walk on the beach instead of a night on the town? It can be fun to find creative ways to spend less!
