SO WHY NOT COME UP WITH SOME FINANCIAL RESOLUTIONS? WINTER Here are 4 timely suggestions: RESOLUTION # 1 I will not panic. The American economy tends to be cyclical. So don’t let downturns frighten you into making unwise financial moves. RESOLUTION # 2 I will live beneath my means. You can’t go wrong following this motto. Look for ways to scale back, and resist the temptation to keep up with the Joneses. RESOLUTION # 3 I will know where I stand. Go ahead and open those 401(k) statements. Take a close look at your loans and credit cards. Once you know exactly where you stand, it’s much easier to make effective plans for the future. RESOLUTION # 4 I will save some money. A cushion of cash is extra important when times are tough. Do whatever it takes to save on a regular basis, even if you have to start small.
