Get Organized And Feel BETTER About Your Money
OK, it’s time to get honest and I mean, REALLY honest!
Yes, it’s a loaded question but one worth thinking about.
Judging from our high levels of debt, expensive housing, roller coaster stock markets and less than stellar job markets, it’s fair to say that many of us are having a rough time. And rightly so. Making ends meet today (let alone saving for the future) is tougher than it’s ever been!
Enough with the excuses, it’s time to make changes.
Avoidance, worry, fear, procrastination or mindless spending are normal emotions and reactions to anything “financial”. But they do NOT make things better! Left untreated, financial problems don’t heal themselves and can have a negative impact on how you live your life today and tomorrow.
So what can you do to get smarter and feel better?
Lot’s of things but let’s start small. Even baby steps accumulate and make a difference over time. Try cutting your spending or increasing your savings by $10/wk. Cancel the gym membership you never use and work out at home. Or the magazine subscriptions you never have time to read. Most importantly, if you don’t know where your finances stand (and many people don’t), get help to figure it out.
