Stay on the right track with a periodic clean-up and review of your finances.

Many of us go through spring cleaning to welcome the warmer weather. You can apply the same idea to a little financial review. Here are a few ideas to get started:

  • Clean out old paperwork.
    Of course you’ll save your tax returns and documents that support your deductions for up to seven years, but you can shred other documents.

  • Compare your budget to your plan.
    Are you saving what you planned to? Are your expenses in line with your projections? Even small adjustments now can help in the future.

  • Review your insurance policies.
    Do you have appropriate coverages? If your premium rates have been creeping up, consider bundling policies for a better rate, or shopping around for a better price.

A quick financial review will help you confirm you are on the right track.
