Financial Planning Week

October 3rd, 2013

October 7-13 is Financial Planning Week! There’s no better time than now to give your finances a checkup. Check out the following tips on a different topic each day of the week to help you become and stay financially healthy!

 

Monday: Financial Goal Setting

Setting financial goals is both smart and rewarding! When you set your goals, you decide what you want to accomplish and how you are going to accomplish it. Use the S.M.A.R.T (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, Timely) goal model to break down your goals into more achievable action steps!

Goal: I will save more money this year.

S.M.A.R.T Goal: I will save $15 each week for one year to build up my emergency savings fund.

 

Tuesday: Savings and Spending Plan

A savings and spending plan (or budget) is a tool used to organize your expenses and ensure you do not spend more than you earn. You can use it to anticipate the amount of money you will receive and the money you will have to pay and increase your savings.

Set a budget and create a plan to reach your financial goals all while tracking your progress with Mint.com!

 

Wednesday: Maximizing Income

Maximizing is defined as making the greatest or fullest use of something. You can now use your savings and spending plan to find spending leaks, determine needs versus wants and find incentive programs to help maximize income.

Is that daily Starbucks or lunch run adding up? Find out how much you could save by fixing your spending leaks!: http://www.finishrich.com/free_resources/lattecalculator.php

 

Thursday: Financial Products and Services

There are many different ways to handle your money and places to keep it. Take some time to research local banks and credit unions to determine what works best for you and establish the correct checking and savings accounts. Resources like bankrate.com can help you search and compare rates!

 

Friday: Understanding Credit

Credit is the foundation for your financial future. It is used by lenders, landlords, employers and other individuals or creditors to determine trustworthiness to repay borrowed money. Having good credit can help you rent or buy things, obtain a job, lease rental property, obtain insurance at a lower rate and more.

Don’t pay to order your credit report! You have the right to receive a free copy of your credit report once every 12 months from each of the three credit reporting agencies. Review your credit report every year for accuracy and to evaluate your credit rating!

 

Saturday: Managing Debt

Assess your current situation using the debt-to-income ratio, then decide which debts to pay off first and power pay down your debts one at a time.

Struggling with prioritizing which debts to pay back first? Start with necessities such as food, shelter, clothing and minimum payments to keep essential utility services. Read more for SDG&E utility assistance programs!

 

Sunday: Protecting Yourself Financially

The more information is out there about you, the easier it is to be taken advantage of. Control information leaks from credit cards or bank accounts, set up safeguards and check your credit at least once a year for any unusual activity.

There are many things you can do to protect your identity, such as opting-out of pre-screened credit card offers here.
