Reduce Stress by Simplifying Your Finances
For many Americas, tax season is full of questions.
Will you owe money? And, if so, how will you pay the IRS?
Or are you lucky enough to be getting a refund? When that check comes in, will you put the money away, treat yourself, or do a little of both?
Either way, most of us are now looking toward next year—how the actions we'll take in 2013 will not only save us money on our next tax returns, but may also bring in a nice refund. That's a nice thought, but it's only a fantasy if you don't maintain proper money management right now.
While most people start their savings plan with thoughts of paying off debt, it's sometimes difficult knowing where to begin. Cutting back on spending is another wise move, but surprise expenses invariably hit each month. These aren't necessarily major bills, but small necessities that force us to dip into our reserve funds, and when added together leave us—once again—breaking even or over-spending.
