While we all hope to have our personal finances in order all year long, a new year can give us a fresh start to change some of the areas that need improvement. This first post of the year should give you some ideas of what you can do to make 2010 the best year yet, for you and your finances!
Did you start a TFSA in 2009? If not, the good news is that you now have up to $10,000 worth of room for investing in a TFSA since you gain another $5,000 each year.
Have debt to pay down? Try to get your credit card interest rate reduced to make your payments more effective at reducing your principle.
Look for ways to save money. Doing this will free up money to add to your savings. Once you've saved in as many ways as you can, you could find more money to save by looking for other sources of income.
Whatever improvements you choose to make, each small change could make a big difference between now and retirement!
