We are just a few weeks into the new year and most of us are trying to recover from all of the Christmas spending. I was reading an article in the Washington Post by the columnist and now author of the 21 Day Financial Fast, Michelle Singletary. Ms. Singletary spoke about how people want to lose weight in the new year but never think about getting their finances in order. This 21 day financial fast is not going to get you out of debt, but will help your re-examine your spending habits. During the 21 day financial fast, you should avoid using your credit cards, going out to restaurants and shopping. The only time you should spend money during these three weeks is for paying bills, grocery shopping and paying for the basic necessity. This will teach you how to keep count of your money.
It is also important to have an accountable partner. If you are married or in a committed relationship, it is important that you work together during this fast. Money is one of the top reason why relationships end. If you are needing assistance with getting your finances in order or you are having trouble in your relationship, give me a call. I would love to assist you.
Lets start the new year off right!!! Are you ready???
