We all know someone who has a laundry list of New Year’s resolutions wasting away unfulfilled at the bottom of some cabinet or under a long-cooled coffee mug; some years, that person might even be yourself. But the annual goal of self-renewal and improvement doesn’t have to be a bunch of empty words. You can start making your money work for you today with the right plan, and by following some simple financial New Year’s resolutions with help from Money Ladder.

Resolution 1: Trim Your Budget

This might seem like self-evident advice, but if you’ve ever tried to cut back on spending you know how difficult it can be if you aren’t committed. There are probably a large number of areas in your life where you could be saving money, from food to streaming subscriptions, but without the ability to prioritize you can end up spending more than you have to on things that don’t add much to your life.

This will be one of the easier financial New Year’s resolutions to stick to if you divide each of your spending areas into a list based on their importance to you. To use food as an example, you can divide your meal budget into three basic columns: food you need to keep you going throughout the day, food you enjoy but which isn’t always necessary to factor into your budget, and food you only buy out of habit that you can cut out entirely. You might be surprised at how helpful a simple tier list like this can be for keeping you on track!

Resolution 2: Seek Investments

Financial New Year’s resolutions work best if they’re focused on both short and long term saving and spending. To that end, doing some research into what kinds of investments will work for your situation is a great way to safeguard your monetary future. You might be surprised at all the ways there are to invest and save which are available to people of all income levels.

For example, there are a lot of mutual funds that require little money to get started and make for relatively risk-free ways to save and grow your wealth. And sticking to these financial New Year’s resolutions can be made easier with the help of an automatic savings account at your bank. Talk to a representative at your local bank to find out what your options are for amounts you can have automatically taken from your check and put directly into a savings account. Saving doesn’t have to be painful or difficult to figure out with the right resources at your disposal.

Resolution 3: Resolve Debt

We live in an era defined by credit and loans, and many people have trouble making sense of it all. For this reason, one of the top priorities on your list of financial New Year’s resolutions should be to put your debt out to pasture and move forward with as clean of a credit score as you can manage. While that might sound easier said than done, you can break this goal into small chunks that will make it a lot more manageable.

In the first place, following goals 1 and 2 on this list will automatically lend themselves to resolving some of your debt. Spending less and investing in your future will go a long way towards making this one of the financial New Year’s resolutions you can claim you accomplished by the end of 2022.

Next, prioritize which of your debts and loans will be easiest to pay off and which ones will require a bit more of an undertaking. Knocking out your minor debts as quickly as you can will free up space in both your bank account and your mind that you’ll need to take on your bigger debts head-first.

And resolving debt can be made much easier by seeking out an affordable and experienced certified debt specialist. A pro can make sure your financial New Year’s resolutions stay on track, and that you’re neither neglecting your need to save and put money aside for debt resolution nor funneling too much of the cash for your daily essentials away from what matters most. All it takes is a little guidance to find the perfect balance between saving and spending. Working with a certified Debt Specialist should feel like you’re collaborating on a project with a friend, and that’s what we aim to be for you at Money Ladder.
