Take the money personality quiz!

What about you? Want to pay off debt this year? Save more money? Eat better? Exercise more? We tend to use the end result as the resolution, when really your resolutions should be changes to behaviors that will get you there. So true. Have you ever thought about it that way?

Pay off debt? Resolution – set up an auto payment from every paycheck that day you get paid. The money is taken out right away before you even have a chance to realize it’s there. By setting up smaller auto payments vs. one payment on the due date you can save on interest and actually pay off quicker.

Save more money? Saving can be difficult for many. Over 70% of ALL Americans live paycheck to paycheck! Resolution – Find one thing to either eliminate or find savings in your budget. Can you eliminate premium channels from cable and save $30 a month? Have way more data than you need on your mobile plan? Can you cut that down and save $25 a month? Take whatever savings you can find, even if it’s $5, and set up a monthly auto transfer of that amount into your savings.

TIP: Use Mobile/Online Banking? Remove your savings account from your accounts view so you are not staring at the money sitting there…tempting you. Out of sight, out of mind.
