How to Organize your Finances
Organize finances in six easy steps:
- Reorganize your filing system. The ultimate goal is to have a paperless office. In the meantime, you want to sort it into groups as follows:
- Assets and liabilities. Organize records as they relate to property you own, bank accounts, life insurance and other policies, investment accounts, collectibles, loans, and mortgages.
- Bills. Organize information about vendors you pay.
- Tax. Organize the information that you store throughout the year in a way that is easy to access and take to an accountant or use for doing taxes yourself.
- Reorganize your bank and credit card accounts and examine investment accounts if any, including retirement accounts. Close unnecessary and unused accounts, and consolidate wherever possible.
- Build a monthly and an annual budget to take control over your finances.
- Hire technology to automate paying bills.
- Provide security for your personal information by keeping your financial information in a safe place or using software that you can buy at our store for just under $10. Buying a shredder also helps destroy documents you no longer need but may show your personal information.
- Schedule a meeting with a financial advisor to start a savings program to help you meet your retirement, educational, and other financial goals.
