This is something I should’ve done when I first started my… “financial journey”- for lack of a better word. 😛
This is going to be a 4 part series covering 4 different-but related aspects of my finances.
To start, this week I am going to focus on getting financially organized. In today’s world pretty much everything is automated, computerized or digital. As important as that is, such as online banking, I think having some tangible things- checklists and paper budgets, will help me feel more in touch with my debt repayment and with my money.
Steps for Financial Organization
– Binder for all my papers/checklists/budget
– Bill Payment Checklist: 1-15, 16-31 Calendar
– Breakdown of Each Savings Account
– Debt Repayment Tracker (on blog too)
– Receipt Pouch
I will complete these tasks and post about how I found this task.
Do you have any other suggestions of how to get financially organized?
