Set 2014 Up for Financial Success

Have Goals for a Brighter Financial Future in 2014?


Take your financial resolutions to the next level with these simple tips:

  1. SET A GOAL -Think of all the things you'd like to accomplish financially and rank them. Paying off all your credit card debt, saving for a down payment on a new car or a house, setting up your will or power of attorney for health care and organizing your personal finances are some examples. Remember this "SMART" acronym and keep your goal specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Timely. Focus on one goal that will have a satisfying payoff
  2. ClockMAKE IT A FORCE OF HABIT -  Make a decision once and then automate it so  it is easier to follow-through. Internet Banking is a very helpful tool. Log in to to set-up these money saving features:

    • Have a portion of your regular deposit automatically transferred to savings.
    • Open a Holiday Savings account and make automatic contributions.
    • Enroll in Change Jar, an automatic feature that allows you to save your change every time you swipe your debit card.
    • Use online bill pay to pay all bills, on time every time.
    • Set alerts from the bill pay system to remind you when a payment is due.
    • Set up a low balance alert so you never get caught off-guard by an overdraft.
  3. SLEEP ON IT - Impulse spending can wreak havoc. Sleep on a spending decision or find another way to delay spending until you?re confident it?s a prudent choice. Ask yourself, does this serve my goals? Having a goal and keeping it top of mind is a good way to achieve your long-term objectives.
