Spring Clean for a Fresh Financial Start

The onset of spring is a perfect time to give your finances a fresh start and get organized. Here are some tips to spring clean your money matters:

Take Inventory of Your Accounts and Debts

The first step is gathering all your financial information in one place. Make a list of all your bank and investment accounts along with account numbers, balances, and contact information. Also make a list of any debts you have such as credit cards, student loans, car loans, etc. with amounts owed and payment due dates. Having everything laid out will give you a clear picture of where you stand financially.

Review Your Budget

With your financial information in hand, review your monthly budget. Are there areas where you are overspending? Are you saving enough each month? Spring is a good time to look at your spending and saving habits and make any needed adjustments. An up-to-date budget aligned with your financial goals is key.

Set Financial Goals

Along with budgeting, take some time to think about your short and long-term financial goals. Do you want to pay off debt? Save for a big purchase? Increase retirement contributions? Write your goals down and calculate how much you need to save each month to achieve them. Having clear financial goals will help you stay motivated.

Automate for Simplicity

Automating your finances as much as possible reduces effort and ensures regular saving. Set up automatic transfers from checking to savings accounts and automatic bill payments. Automatic deposits into investment accounts are another easy way to build your wealth over time. Simplifying with automation helps make managing money easier.

Consolidate and Organize

If you have multiple bank or investment accounts, consider consolidating to simplify things. Fewer accounts mean less paperwork and easier tracking. Shred any old bank statements and organize current statements for taxes. Go paperless by opting into online statements to reduce clutter. A streamlined filing system makes financial management easier going forward.

Check Your Credit Report

It’s good practice to check your credit report annually to spot any errors or suspicious activity that could affect your credit score. You can obtain free reports from AnnualCreditReport.com. Review the report and dispute any inaccurate information. Monitoring your credit regularly is important.

Update Account Beneficiaries

Make sure the beneficiary information on your bank, investment, and retirement accounts is up to date. Life changes like marriage or divorce may require updates. You want your assets to go to the right people in the event of your passing. Spring cleaning your beneficiaries ensures your intentions are followed.

Update Your Insurance

Review all your insurance policies – health, home, auto, life, disability etc. Do you have adequate coverage? Do the deductibles and limits make sense? Shop around to find better rates if needed. Proper insurance coverage provides peace of mind in case of unexpected events.

Spring is about renewal. Take this season to hit the reset button on your finances so you can move forward in a positive direction. A little organization and planning goes a long way!
