TAX SEASON IS A GOOD TIME TO STEP BACK AND LOOK AT OUR FINANCIAL HEALTH.
A few tips to get ahead financially all year are to:
1. Spend less than you earn. Small sacrifices can lead to big savings.
2. Put away the plastic. Credit card debt is the number one obstacle to financial success.
3. Pay yourself first. Set up an auto-deposit of 5-10% of your paycheck before paying bills.
4. Know where it goes. Plan a budget for realistic spending and savings goals.
