Want to take control of your money? By making a few little changes, you can begin now with a plan to get your spending and savings back on track.

From cable bills to everyday spending habits, these tips will aid you to save more, reduce spending, and get on the right track to financial success!

Have Goals

You might feel that first on our list should be the well-known New Year’s resolutions we’ve become so used to every year. But since New Year’s resolutions tend to flop by January 2nd  every year, goal setting is a much better choice.

Establishing goals is a habit for folks who win with money, and it should become a habit for you as well. Research has shown that just by having a goal for something it gets you closer to that goal instead of not having any goals at all.

A critical part of this equation is ensuring your goals are specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and time oriented. Yes, SMART! Once you have a goal in mind that has all these attributes, slice your goal into little pieces or milestones that you can hit more simpler. Once you get to each milestone, rejoice. This will aid in encouraging you as you go forward toward your financial goals.

Also, jot down your financial goals and place them in an noticeable place so you see them often, like on your mantle, refrigerator, or front door.

Negotiate prices

Did you know that you can negotiate a price in nearly any kind of buying situation? Make your money work for you the right way!

Though you might have formerly thought negotiation was only for big purchases like cars and homes, you can also negotiate online and at retail stores. You can even negotiate to get your bills reduced.
