QUICK FINANCIAL TIP: PREPARING TO SPEND YOUR TAX RETURN

Tax return season will shortly be upon us and having a plan for how to use your tax return before the money hits your bank account is one way to ensure you put the dollars where they're most needed. 

1. Decide what your greatest financial needs/goals are.
2. Decide on a percentage amount you will put towards a few of the most important financial goals. 
3. Treat yourself to a portion of your return as spending money do to whatever you want! This way you're more likely to feel good about putting the majority of the funds towards your financial goal.

QUICK FINANCIAL TIP: CHRISTMAS IS NOT AN EMERGENCY--I know, I know it’s not even Halloween yet but I wanted to get the gears turning and the brains thinking about plans for Christmas spending.

Making it a part of your budget TODAY will help you avoid the December budget busters and the January financial hangover!

Tip 1: Christmas is NOT an emergency
Tip 2: Set reasonable expectations
Tip 3: Shop EARLY and AFTER
Tip 4: PLAN to give to those in need
