For some people, a resolution might be working in an extra trip to the gym each week, or agonizing over ways to avoid that extra piece of chocolate cake. But another good (and, some might argue, more painless) option is to commit to improving your financial life. Maybe you’ve always wanted to start saving for retirement but never really had a chance to explore your options, or maybe there’s some debt you’d like to pay off. Think of 2015 as a new start, an opportunity to take control of your financial future and make smarter, better decisions about how to manage your money.
In the spirit of this season of resolutions, we’re kicking off a new blog series that will help you start working toward whatever financial goal you set for yourself this year. Check back every Tuesday in January for tools and tips on everything from saving money to sticking to a budget!
