1482783 10101507748063700 951882570 n 300x225 New Years Cash Giveaway I think for my New years resolution this year I am going to choose one main thing and everything else I would want should fall into place. I just recently bought Dave Ramsey’s book Complete guide to Money. So my goal (or resolution) for 2014 is #7 on the list above, get out of debt. I want to take it one step further and say I want to be completely debt free by June 2014!!! For me that is huge. I have never really been good at saving cash, or not using my credit cards minimally. Not to mention I just bought a car a few years back and didn’t have too much to put down on it. Now don’t get me wrong I am not in huge debt. I just think personally I want to be at peace with my finances. I want to pay off my school loans, car loan and my 3 credit cards, so that I don’t feel stuck having to pay those things monthly instead of saving for something I truly would enjoy paying for!

My resolution has been something I have wanted for a long time so it was fairly easy for me to decide what I wanted. Are you thinking, I have come up with resolutions every year but this year I just don’t know what I want to change in my life? Well then ask yourself these important questions:

  1. What would make you happier?
  2. What concrete action would bring change to your life?
  3. Are you a ‘yes’ resolver or a ‘no’ resolver?
  4. Are you biting off more than you can chew, or are you starting small enough?
  5. How will you be able to hold yourself accountable?

Have you found any strategies or questions that have helped you successfully keep resolutions in the past? What resolutions did you make?

    I’ve been working on the “get into better shape” one for the past few years. It’s slow going, but it does seem to be working. It took me a while to get out of shape, so I’m not worried about it taking a while to get back into shape!

  4. Kelley Galyen says:

    I love the New Year. A time for new beginnings and new plans!
