Spring clean your finances. Published Date May 10, 2021 Now’s the time for a little sprucing up of your finances. Make them sparkle with these tips. CLEAN UP OLD SPENDING HABITS. Review your spending, figure out if you can scale back on any purchases, and build a budget. TIDY DEBT DUST BUNNIES. No need to clear them all at once - set a manageable goal, and try to tackle debt with the highest interest rate first. CLEAR OUT THE FILING CABINET. Sign up for paperless statements and digital alerts – use your cabinet for random thingamabobs instead. DIG UP THOSE GIFT CARDS. They’re taking up space in your wallet, and you deserve a treat. OVERHAUL YOUR SUBSCRIPTIONS. Free up some extra cash by cancelling any subscription services you're no longer using. GIVE YOUR OLD CLOTHING A NEW HOME. If those old favourites no longer bring you joy, sell them – or trade them – online. FALL IN LOVE WITH OLD FAVOURITES. Pull those classic looks out of retirement – your spring wardrobe may already be in your closet. FILL UP THOSE JARS. If you have some extra cash after you’ve paid your bills, try to put some into savings.
