Tips For Organizing Your Financial World

To change your basic patterns of living, set aside a few minutes every day to visualize reaching your legacy goals.  Also, begin to create opportunities to stick to your changes:

(1) Give yourself a small task each day,

(2) schedule it into your routine and

(3) make it too convenient to pass up.  For example, if you are trying to keep track of your spending, have a basket or file where you walk in the door and put down your bags.  Immediately throw your paperwork in the file.  The first step to the process is done and was quick and painless.

Implementing these changes may take a few days or weeks, but don’t despair as it can take a number of weeks to change your engrained routines.

Here are some suggestions to implement on a daily basis:

~ Organize your financial files (taxes/years/important documents/financial statements/etc.) in a convenient locale near where you pay your bills making it easy to quickly put your important papers away.

~ Set up your financial information so it can be easily viewed in a five minute check-in each day.  That way when you log onto your computer in the morning it’s an easy choice to get in the habit of checking in on your on line finances.  Use one of the many free and secure “my accounts” functions that banks and brokerage institutions now offer to their clients.  This will allow you to efficiently and quickly monitor and reinforce your commitment to understanding and monitoring how your money is working for you.

~ Leave a file folder right where you walk into your home and file receipts, old statements, etc.

~ Create a file for all of your daily cash receipts so you can track and understand where your money is going.

~ Use a convenient monthly budget that tracks all bills, as well as your monthly cash expenditures by setting it up in a place you use every day, like a computer or a pad of paper near your daily organizer. 

~ Set up an area that is only for working on your finances.  Have an inbox for statements, bills and a filing system within hands reach.
