If you are feeling overwhelmed with bills and expenses, having clear goals can be beneficial. When you focus your goal making in the following areas, you should start to see positive financial changes in 2020.

Set a Budget

A clear budget is one of the most important financial tools you can have. Knowing where your money is going and allocating it in advance will help you pay your bills on time. A budget can help you create goals, and over time, saving money will become a habit.

You can find apps dedicated to budgeting, use a simple spreadsheet, or write it on paper. If you can, set aside a percentage of your pay each month in an emergency fund. 

Be Credit Card Savvy

When you choose the right credit card, it can be part of a successful financial plan. With responsible management, your credit card can help you budget. Try to find a solution that suits your spending habits. For example, some credit cards offer cashback, and others offer rewards points when used in specific ways. 

Be realistic about how much you can afford to pay back on your credit card each month, as early payments can save you fees and interest. Don’t set your limit too high, especially if you are easily tempted by impulse purchases.

Increase Your Income

If you are serious about being financially successful in 2020, there may be ways that you can increase your income. For those with existing employment, there may be opportunities for a promotion or training programs to help you gain additional skills.

If you have a unique talent, you can use it to make money on the side. For example, you may be able to start a business sewing face masks, or you could use your mathematics knowledge to tutor students. 

Reduce Expenses

For those who can’t increase the money coming in, there could be ways to decrease the money going out. Look through your expenses and decide whether there is anything you are prepared to give up. Do you need three different streaming services? Can you mow your own lawns and save money on the gardener? Everyone’s situation is unique, but there are usually areas you can improve once you start examining your spending.

Try to reduce your bad debts first, focusing on loans with high-interest rates. Check whether you have any automatic subscriptions you no longer need, and pay your bills on time to avoid late fees. Take the time to call your utility companies and insurance providers to determine whether it is possible to get a lower rate.

If you have a hidden talent, you may be able to increase your income. When you choose a credit card that is the right fit for your lifestyle, it can play a role in the way you manage your household finances.
