After a long, cold winter, giving your house a thorough cleaning can be almost therapeutic. Cleaning your windows, tossing out things you no longer need, and telling those pesky dust bunnies to hit the road can give you a feeling of renewal. In spring, everything begins anew, like a phoenix from the ashes; the world rises refreshed and revitalized. It’s time for a clean start.
You give your house and your yard a good spring cleaning, so why not your finances? You made it through the holiday season; it’s the perfect time to purge, reassess, and organize your financial life. It’s so easy to “set it and forget it” when it comes to your finances, but if you’re not regularly checking the details, it could be costing you. Interest rates are constantly changing, as are all aspects of life. When was the last time you looked at your homeowner’s insurance coverage? Since that time, have you made any expensive purchases such as jewelry or a new television? Did you put on an addition? Often, people don’t realize how much things have changed since they first purchased their insurance policy until the worst happens. Staying on top of things with a yearly spring cleaning of your finances will save you a lot of money in the end.
You’ll be surprised at how much you can save by cutting interest rates or shopping around for a better insurance policy. Spring cleaning your finances will either save you a lot of money or confirm that you’re already on track with your financial security.
Once you’ve given your finances a good scrubbing and de-cluttering, you’ll feel revitalized, reinvigorated, and renewed. By having a better handle on your financial situation, you’ll feel confident in the knowledge that you’re in control and on top of things. Now you can take on the world!
