As I’ve proposed in years before, I’d strongly advise you to take a few moments during the holidays and look at your financial situation. Don’t just say you’re going to lose weight, take a trip, or volunteer more in 2015, make some financial resolutions, too! My wife and I plan to try to boost our cash savings by 25%, make Roth IRA contributions, and increase what we contribute to our employers’ 401(k) plans by a few percentage points. What are you going to do in 2015 to make progress financially?
2014 was a good year for 2MuchCents as there have now been more than 27,000 unique views! Viewership was up over 200% this year! I thank all of you for your support and continued sharing of my posts. I couldn't do it without your help!
The top five posts for 2014 were:
- Tips for Buying a Car
- How to Plan an Affordable Trip
- Freedom from Student Loans
- Quit It! (bad financial habits not to do)
- Summer Jobs, Life Lessons
If you missed any of them, please give them a read now.
It’s my plan to keep at it in 2015. I’m already working on a few posts that will cover topics such as buying vs. renting a house, freezing your credit, things to consider if you’re moving, stress-free ways to pay down debt, and why watching your portfolio go down hurts more than watching your portfolio go up feels good. I hope you’ll check them out.
Happy holidays. I wish you and your family a happy, healthy, and fulfilling 2015!
